I recently bought the 2 drives in the subject line…
Scanning cdr burned with the 48125w with cdspeed shows green sectors and passed file integrity tests.
Scanning same cdr with the 163d will show intermittent yellow sectors… sometimes a re-scan makes these sectors turn green a second time around.
Why is this behavior occuring?
A file integrity scan indicates all is well even on the discs with yellow sectors. I don’t know what to think. It even picked up a yellow on an older 4x burned disc done by a different drive.
I’m thinking the 163d doesn’t read as well as the writer does.
