Hi,

I got a new Sony DRU-190S. Its quality scan tests seem to be a little bit “interesting”. Are scanning qualities of SONY really so bad or is my drive a living dead? The scans with original 1.63 firmware were terrific. I crossflashed to DH20A3S. Nothing changed - the same results:

  • PLATINUM +R 4x burnt with NEC-1100a 5 years ago

    Scan drive SONY DRU-190S@DH20A3S

    Scan drive LITEON LH20A1S

  • SONY +R 16x burnt with LG-H44N

Scan drive SONY DRU-190S@DH20A3S

Scan drive LITEON LH20A1S

I scanned dozen of discs (PHILIPS, SONY, PLATINUM, VERBATIM, RICOH, MAXELL, etc) both with original firmware and crossflashed, used different versions of CD/DVD Speed, under W2000K and XP, no difference.

What is wrong with this … drive :confused:

Thank you very much
