SH-183A, does it do quality scans?



I’m new here as you might have noticed and I have real easy questions.
I’ve seen the 182 do scans in DVD-Speed but just to be sure I ask anyway, does the 183A support this as well?


Damn hard question apparently. I answer myself: yes it does.


Hehe yep, and it does it quite well too.
Damn finding the registry key in Vista to allow the drive to use CD-Speed was real pain though. :doh:


Who forbids it?


Nero CD-DVD Speed’s default settings.

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\ahead\Nero Toolkit\CD Speed\CD Quality\Blocked usually contains PLEXTOR, HL-DT-ST, TSST, SAMSUNG.
It included PIONEER and NEC before but now doesn’t anymore. :slight_smile:


In Vista 64 the key is here.
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Classes\VirtualStore\MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\ahead\Nero Toolkit\CD Speed\CD Quality



Just got the 183A and followed your path to this directry and located the blocked key. But what do i do to allow scanning ???

I have deleted the file - nothing - no quality scanning

I have renamed the file and nothing either. ???

Any help and instructions would be great.

Thanks in advance. :bigsmile::bigsmile:



This is a FAQ :wink:
Just delete the strings “Samsung” and “TSST” from that registry entry.



I too blanked the key and it knew something was fishy, you must leave something in there.


Should look like this.


Excellent Michael, I followed the reg key and deleted these two entrys. The drive now scans using nero.

Thanks a million. :bow::bow:
