This has probably been asked (and answered) a few million times by now, but I'm new to quality scans, and I'm a bit puzzled. I've read that only DVD writers are reliable for performing Nero's CD-DVD Speed Disk Quality Test scans, however the LTD-165H (which is only a reader, NOT a writer) is in the list of drives which work for the Quality Test scans. Am I missing something?
Also, I've read that the scans from some drives are more reliable (giving more reproduceable results) than others. If indeed the LTD-165H is an appropriate drive for performing Quality Test scans, how does it rate for reliability?
I'm planning to purchase a new 16X drive soon, and if the LTD-165H is good for doing Quality Test scans, I won't need to consider whether the new drive will need that capability as well.
Thanks in advance for your advice and insights.
