    I don't think that the reading device has much influence on the resulting audio file. I've used both a DVD drive and CD read/write to good effect.
    However, the software that you use to rip the CD does have an effetct as well as the bit rate and the resulting file format.
    MP3 is, at the risk of offending many people, considered to be inferior to Apple's AAC format at the same bit rate. But only iPods tend to use AAC and everyone, including Sony, can use MP3's.
