I’m new to DVD-writing and recently bought a Lite-on 812s. Thanks to Code guys, I’m now running a 812s@832s using VS0A.
My previous burns with AN31 media were horrible
- max PI = 1153, Average PI = 541.50
- max PIF = 114, Average PIF = 2.52
Recently I bought some HP DVD+Rs, CMC-MAG media - and they burn much better.
- max PI = 12, Average PI = 2.42
- max PIF = 2, Average PIF = 0.00
both discs have purple burnable bottoms.
What I’m wondering is, is there any relation between the error rates in a burned DVD and the duration of the DVD’s life (i.e. before it “rots”?).
Thankfully, my Lite-on 812s@832s reads both the AN31 and CMC-MAG discs fine. The same cannot beside about my standalone DVD-player though - the AN31s are horrible.
Thanks for your help.
