Burner for scanning DL media

#1

Hi.

I’ve noticed that often my old NEC ND-3540A is unable to scan DL media burned with my Pioneer 112D, it says “Drive does not support this function”, even on Verbatim DL media. Of course those disc works fine on standalone players, so it’s an issue of the NEC drive. I’m looking for a new drive and my local shop have these:

LG GSA-H55N
LG GSA-H55L
LG GH20NS10
LiteOn LH-20A1S
LiteOn DH-20A1S
Sony/NEC Optiarc AD-5200A
Sony/NEC Optiarc AD-7191A
Pioneer DVR-215
Pioneer DVR-215D
Samsung SH-S202N
Samsung SH-S203N
Samsung SH-S203P

What’s your advice?
Thanks

I go for one of the Samsung 203’s or one of the Liteys. The Pioneers are excellent burners and the LG’s don’t scan from what I understand and the Sony/NEC Optiarc you may run into the same problems…although I think I’ve used my NEC 3540 to scan before, can’t recall though.
