Before I get flamed, I understand that the quality scans are not just of the disk but also the drives ability to read it. I also understand that NEC drives seem to be fairly erratic scanners (from what I have read). I just got a new Lite on 20A1H and still have my “old” NEC 3550A.
Anyways, seems that every time I scan a burn from my liteon with my NEC I will get weird spikes. Here is a comparison of what my liteon reports as a great burn (mcc004) and my NEC shows to be not so great.
and my NEC (the very high spikes seem to happen with most liteon burns)
Because my NEC seems to consistently give results like this (weird spikes, same areas) I am inclined to go with my liteon and assume my NEC is goofy. But with two completely different scans, how can people truly justify these “great” burns they post. If that disk was scanned with another drive would it turn out to be not so good?
I read somewhere that you should never scan a disk with the same drive you burned it with, is this true?
And if you end up with a good scan and a not so good one, which scan do you guys go with?
Thanks for answering my questions (I did do searches and looked around first :))
