Has anyone else had this problem or perhaps heard of any known deficiency with ASUS optical drives in regards to DAE ?

I've built a number of computers with ASUS 40x12x48 CDRW's and they all seem to work quite splendidly apart from this one problem. They all seem to have trouble extracting tracks from certain audio CD's properly.

Dont get me wrong, the majority of CD's they handle just fine but with some particular audio CD's (originals, not burnt copies) I get problems (skip, clicks, extraction failures etc). Now this is despite the fact that the CD media appears to be in good codition and is easily readable on several other brand burners that I've tested them with?

Anyone know anything about this?
