Exclamation Drives that incorrectly report YES for Karaoke under all versions of Microstudio

The following list of drives DO NOT support the CDG format. However, Microstudio 2.315 and higher and Hoster Detect Drives button shows YES for Karaoke.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Microstudio 3.100 and higher, and Hoster 3.314 and higher use a totally new way to access and control drives, including the most advanced software error correction available for importing CDG lyrics/graphics (written by MTU). Thus, some drives on this list may now work with these newer releases.

If you try to run Microstudio with these "false CDG" drives, you will see this error message:
Error: Unable to read AUDIO sectors 0 to 25 on device 0:0:0 Illegal command request (04h 00h 02h 05h 24h 00h). The device 0:0:0 may be different, depending on how the drive is attached to the computer.

There is no software or hardware fix to make these drives fully support reading and writing CDG Karaoke discs. You must buy a CDG Certified CD Burder.
