Data has an extra set of error correction bits, thus if there are errors they can handle it better.
PCM data does not, it is simply RAW Audio.
So there is a difference between Yellowbook and Redbook, this is also why Redbook can’t be protected and errors are much more noticeable.
Yes, both are DATA but the way they are written is ‘completely’ different. One was made to stream and the other to store files in the ISO format.
Saying there is NO differnce because they are both “data” is like saying there is no differnce between NTFS and FAT because they are both file systems.
So Redbook can’t handle errors as well as Yellowbook plain and simple. So you burn a Yellowbook and Redbook at 24X and both get XXX ammount of errors, Yellowbook you don’t notice but Redbook you do in certain players because it lacks that extra set or error correction bits. The whole format isn’t as good as people think it is
I hope that clears this up and makes some sense to you.
