After reading the review of the Sony DRU-820A, I decided to go out and get one. I already have a DRU-800A and it works perfectly – burns well, scans well, no complaints. I installed the DRU-820A and have burned a couple of DVDs with no apparent issues.
The problem: When I attempt to check a disc using either the Disc Quality or Scan Disc tests in Nero CD-DVD Speed, I get an error message stating that the “drive does not support this function.” I had assumed that it did because the review shows results and screenshots from these tests.
I’ve upgraded the firmware to 1.0b and have tried versions 4.11 and 4.51.1 of Nero CD-DVD Speed with no success - I always get the same error. Can anyone help me out before I end up returning the drive?
