CDSpeed 4.7.7.15 - Disc Quality Disabled On Vista x64? (SH-S203B_SB02)

I sorry for the cross-posting, however it dawned on me that this might be a more “accurate” sub-forum for the post…


OS: Vista x64
APP: CDSpeed v.4.7.7.15
DRV: Samsung SH-S203B
VER: SB02

I know the drive supports Disc Quality, I see tons of scans for that drive… and I know that people are using CDSpeed successfully on Vista x64 because I searched the forum archives and found references to people’s scans on various drives using Vista x64.

So I’m at a loss, what am I missing? Benchmarking, Create Disc, Disc Info and Scan Disc all work fine on the application but the “START” for the Disc Quality is perpetually disabled…

Any/all feeback, advise, etc. would be most appreciated…

Found a posting related to the specific problem. Seems that CDSpeed disables the Disc Quality Test for Samsung and TSST drives by default…

The registry key to edit that can be found at…

When I try and run nero cdspeed on scandisc I get the message out of memory, and sometimes your drive does not support this function. What do I have to edit the registry too and will it cure the problem. By the way my dvd/cd rewriter is showing as HL-DT-ST DVDRAM GSA-T50L SC04. I hope this is enough info for you.

My version of Nero CD-DVD speed is 4.01

kind regards a2batman
