I came across this forum about a month or so ago after which I briefly took up the sport of CD-DVD Speed scanning my small mountain of burned media.
Now, I have two DVD+/-RW drives. One is an NEC ND-3550A, the other a Samsung, branded Writemaster (shows up in hardware properties as TSSTorp CD/DVDW SH-W163A.
The NEC is an IDE drive, the Writemaster a SATA.
Nero CD-DVD Speed will only allow me to do a Disc Quality scan using the NEC drive (although it lets me do a ScanDisc integrity check using either drive) when I pick the TSSTcorp drive in the Disc Quality Window the Start button becomes disabled.
And I read the warnings NEC drives producing erratic results with disc scanning tools were no joke, using Disc Quality checks with it always results in the disc in question recieving a score of 0 - usually discs that work perfectly and read/wrote at full speed.
Anyone know why that might happen? Or what if anything I can do to get the TSSTcorp drive to scan?
