The NEC 3550 supports PIE/PIF scanning for DVDs and C1/C2 scanning for CDs. No Jitter scanning and no reporting of POF or CU.
The problem is that many 3550 drives are simply not reliable scanners. You can get really lucky and get a 3550 that reports PIE/PIF in a sensible way, you can be among the majority who get reliable PIF but ridiculous PIE reporting, or you can be among the unlucky who get a drive that reports unreliably for both PIE and PIF.
If you need a reliable drive for PIE/PIF scanning you should get a LiteOn DVD burner.
BenQ burners are OK for PIE/PIF/Jitter scanning if you only scan discs burned in BenQ drives (and some other drive models), but they are unreliable for scanning DVDs burned in NEC and LiteOn drives.
