For some reason the drive in my carpc is not as good at playing the odd scratch as my player or pc, or so I thought.

It seems that my home dvd-recorder just ignores read errors were as when played in my pc/carPc it stops with a read error

Its def. a software setting etc because if I remove the drive from my home recorder and fit it in my pc I get the error, put it back in the recorder and it plays the film without a visible problem.

Does no software exist to make it read past the errors / ignore them like the home player, like I said its not the drive, its the way its being told to read.
