My LiteOn eTAU108 shows Jitter only rarely.
Am I doing something wrong?


#993

Usually with a drive it either shows jitter or does not show at all. What version of discspeed are you using?


#994

4.7.7.16 and 11.
Scanned a 4.7GB DVD-Video.
Only a small area had jitter at all. The rest did not have any purple line.
And that small area only appeared after finishing the scan.


#995

Does this happen with all media? Can you post a scan?


#996

No, only that one DVD so far.

I will post a scan as soon as I have time and happen to use the disc again.
I am sure I have a screenshot somewhere, but finding it can take a long time.
