I have a Pioneer DVR-111D, flashed to firmware 1.29.
I’m running the latest version of CDSpeed under WinXP.
Initially I had some trouble getting the software to recognise my drive (it kept saying “No CD-Rom” but this was resolved with a reboot). Both my DVD drive and HP CD writer (connected via SCSI card) are shown.
However, when I use the surface scan option it shows all discs as being completely bad - including commercial DVDs. The whole thing just fills up with red blocks.
Yet the VSO disc checker software runs fine and shows no bad areas at all.
DVD movies play fine, I can open or copy files from DVD-ROM discs, no problem.
Also, am I correct that I can’t use the Disc Quality checker on my drive…it doesn’t seem to be listed on the list of compatible drives.
However the surafce checker should work properly on any drive, right?
