Re: Sorry ignore my above post, I have CD-Rom drive, I keep forgetting they now have DVD-Rom drives

143.166.82.240

There were some first generation DVD drives that could not read SACD's as they were incorrectly trying to access the hi-res layer first and this was causing them to fail due to there inability to read the hi-res layer of an SACD. This was fixed by many manufacturers via firmware updates but in all of the testing I have done with 40-50 different drives from various manufacturers I have yet to find a drive in a Windows environment that will not read the Redbook layer of an hybrid SACD.

My suggestion would be to look for a firmware update for these drives. If you would like you can post the model number of the drives and I can see if I have any updates that might assist you.
