Cannot error scan with sh-s182m?

I was under the impression that this drive can scan but when I open cdspeed, the start button stays grayed out on the disk quality test. I’m running firmware sb03 (thats what came on the drive). Anyone heard of this happening before?

You might need to remove SAMSUNG and TSST from the “Blocked” entry in the CD Speed part of the registry. :slight_smile:

EDIT: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\ahead\Nero Toolkit\CD Speed\CD Quality

Don’t have this drive, but IIRC you’ll have to edit registry. :slight_smile:
Look around in this forum section or use search, (don’t have correct post at hads right now).

Thanks!!! That seems to have fixed it.

But the driver dont work fine.

And what should that mean??

i don’t have ahead under HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE

never mind, found it, little different on 64bit system

Anyone know where it is in Vista?

IDK anything about Vista, but if it has regedit just search for ‘samsung’ or ‘tsst’.

Can the same thing be done for plex drives?


No. Please search the Plextor section for further information.


Bad scan results. Firmware SB05. Insane PI/PO erros. Very diferent results whit lite-on 1635s for the same media scans.

No surprise, a Litey is still no Sammy, even they have a similar PUH.
