magic iso, doesn't cause any issues, I use it right, also the tool from slysoft works fine.

with BD, it cut down my drive speed from 6x to 3.3x, burns still somehow finished around 6x with verbatim disc, but end of disc often wasn't redable. reading was limited to 3.3x. At that time I mostly burned 2x and 4x Panasonic disc, so didn't strike me as a huge issue.
also it is easy to spot with burst speed, without SPTD it is about 54-63mbps, with SPTD it gets cut down to about 14mbps.

here is a link to the issue

edit btw, here is more about the dvd issue

like i said before, it wouldn't suprise me if SPTD was responsible for killing drives, and pirated basically blamed it on starforce.
Windows 8 the next big failure, right after Windows ME
