Disc Quality Scanning on Hitachi-LG (HL-DT-ST) Drive

Hello. I got a new computer with an Hitachi-LG Data Storage DVD burner.
When I want to scan discs in DiscSpeed (the Nero one), there is no Disc Quality tab AND the C1-C2/PI-PO (or whatever it is) radio button is grayed out under the ScanDisc tab.

How can I get this to work? Do I need different software?

My model is: HL-DT-ST DVD±RW GHA2N

Thanks for the help!

Your particular LG drive is reported to use a Renesas chipset, which historically have never supported disc quality scans. The best you can do is transfer rate tests and hands-on testing with other playback devices. Scanning with a secondary device is always an option, should you need it. :slight_smile:
