Am I doing something wrong ? (KProbe)

Ok I am a newbie at all this but here’s what I did.

I used DVD shrink to rip a DVD and then wrote it to YUDEN000T01 with my 2500a at 8x with the newest Nero.

My Kprobe is at the bottom. Now the DVD plays fine. But I have no idea why the horrible Kprobe.

Kprobe write strategy is 4x speed 8ecc
I am using Harrys Beta 5 drivers.
DVD Shrink 3.1
Nero Burning Rom 6.3.1.6 registered

Any ideas ?

Hmm, who is Harry? lol, His name is Herrie.

You are not doing anything wrong.
Kprobe does not work well on Liteon DVD-ROM drives!
You can NOT compare a Kprobe scan done in a DVD-ROM drive to a Kprobe scan done in a Liteon DVD writer.
This is due to Kprobes’ inability to lock the read speed on the DVD-ROM drives.
If you scanned that disc in a LiteOn DVD burner I am sure the scan would turn out excellent.

Also, I suggest you read through the Kprobe thread

Opps…my bad. Herrie…:o

So should I do the scans with my 2500a ?

What other tool can I use to determine if my DVD’s are burning properly ?

Thanks for your help.

Please read through the NEC troubleshooting guide and FAQ (link located in my signature and stickied at the top of the forum!)

Kprobe gives rubbish scans when used with a DVD-ROM drive, you can only get good scans using a DVD burner and with the speed limited.

For speed limiting use CD BREMSE 2x or 4x

The results will still be shit though, for good looking results you need a Liteon burner.

This is bad?
Platinium dvd+r ricohjpnr02 write4X Sony DRU500


Or that?
MBI DVD-R write 2x nec1300


Both look fine!

Would Nero’s Drive Speed work as well ?

It should :slight_smile:
