Does anyone know? As iam considering getting either of them.
Nope. Sorry, but no LG writer supports quality scanning.
LG GCA (Combo) drives can be used with Nero CD-DVD Speed and KProbe!
(For an unknown reason, LG did not add this feature to GSA/GWA/GMA series drives.)
As far as I remember, some LG CD writers and possibly Combo drives were based on Mediatek chipsets. That’s why these drives are capable to do something like quality scanning.
Correct. I recall reading a post where someone with an older model LG DVD-ROM drive could do quality scans too. Same reason - it used a MediaTek chipset.
The current LG writers use Renesas or Panasonic chipsets so it’s a no go with those
I remember I’ve seen a Matshita doing scans once, but I’m not sure where and when…
It would really be cool if LG added the scanning feature but I think this is Renesas’ fault, not LG’s fault.
Ah well thanks guys…i was considering the LG but i really needed the scan feature?
Get BenQ or LiteOn.
Off topic - my CD-RW GCE-8526B was based Mediatek chipset, and I think it could do quality scaning…
