    Thats not something that really gets tested. Most folks are more concerned with the speed. There is, as far as I know, no ROM that does better than another. A scratched disc either will work or not work. A JLMS-166 works well for me, speed wise.

    A scratched disc is actually missing data from the suface of the disc so as long as laser is staying on track then your rippping program may have a chance to re-read the sector. Decrypter does this pretty well.

    There are some data recovery programs out that may help:
