Checking the quality of a burned DVD is important to me…
However, the NERO utility, DVD_Speed doesn’t work with my newly purchased DVD burner drives LG Model # GSA H55L & Model # GSA H55N:
When a DVD is inserted in either drive, and the “Disk Info” tab is clicked, the disk information is displayed. The “Benchmark”, and “ScanDisk” tabs also seem to work properly.
However, when the “DiskQuality” tab is clicked, the “Start” button is greyed out. The Disk Info fields are populated (Type, ID, Date, and Label). Also, the Start and End info is shown, so I know the disk is being read).
This is true for both commercially produced DVDs and those I’ve burned myself.
CD-DVD_Speed Version 4.7.5 came on the installation disk supplied with the DVD burner. In addition, I’ve downloaded Version 4.60 and Version 22.214.171.124. The problem is the same with all three versions.
Since the software is supplied with the burner, I assumed that they would play nice together. Maybe that was a bad assume. Or am I messing up somehow? (more than possible)
Perhaps I should return these drives and get some that will play nice with the test program. Or maybe there’s another test program that’ll work better.
Apologies for the length of this post, but I’m trying to answer as many questions as I can, up-front.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
