[QUOTE=pythonis;2407396]im assuming that you mean you wish to scan a blank disk before you burn anything onto it rather than after. im not sure if nero would scan a blank disk or not. would be nice if it does. that way id know to trash a disk before wasting my time burning it[/QUOTE]
No, I don’t believe the OP is referring to scanning blank discs as he stated
I’ve had discs that my kids have TRASHED, that look like crap, but that copy just fine. Other times, discs that look just fine have turned out to have defects and did not copy well…[/QUOTE]
I cannot remember with any accuracy the last “bad” blank media I’ve had.
I think my last bad burn was last year with a verbie +R 16X (MCC 004).
It may not even have been a bad disc…probably more like operator error…
No big deal, it cost me less than $0.20.
Why would you even try to scan every blank disc prior to burning?
(and you’re correct, cd-dvd speed won’t “scan” a blank disc).
Boy, you must have a lot of time on your hands to even entertain this.
To each his own I guess.
Purchase some quality media like verbatim or Taiyo Yuden and there’s no need
