I hope this is the right place to ask this question. If I make any mistakes, please briefly let me know. Thanks.
One of the greatest benefits of optical media is the error scanning ability.
Sadly, some models of optical drives (especially those by the vendors Matshita and HL-DT-ST, at least those I tested) have no error scanning ability.
Some other brands such as TSSTcorp and LiteON apparently have support for basic error scanning (I guess good enough for most cases), but apparently only Plextor drives have full support (basic and exptended).
Why don’t all optical drives support extended error scanning? Is there a technical/economical reason or just vendor laziness?
