[QUOTE=kg_evilboy;2512091]Oh, I’m sorry, I mixed that up. Sony DRU-720A is indeed a LiteOn SOHW-16n3S model. For those 3S models, the standard scanning speed is not maximum, but [B]4x[/B], to get results that can be compared with others’.[/QUOTE]
If you please take a look again at the screenshots, they BOTH done at 4x. So I guess I’m not too far off there.
[QUOTE=kg_evilboy;2512091]All [I]recent [/I]LiteOns (starting from SHW-1635S, anything with -AnP at the end, or iHAS/P/eHAUnnn) do jitter scanning, but the 3S drives don’t. Be careful though when buying an iHASn24, there are two models out there (iHASn24 A which is genuine Mediatek LiteOn with all the fun included, or iHASn24 Y which is a rebadged Optiarc!)[/QUOTE]
I am aware of the Lite-On variants, thank you for reminding me.
[QUOTE=kg_evilboy;2512091]Jitter is interesting, but most important is consistency of the scan results. Therefore, most of the users don’t use Pioneers for scanning, for example. LiteOn just has been here first while NEC was very late to introduce quality scanning and LG still has done nothing about it.[/QUOTE]
You couldn’t say it more ACCURATELY : “Most important is consistency of the scan results” which leads me to this question : Shouldn’t the difference between those two scans not too far off ??? If 1st scan’s quality ratings is 93% then 2nd scan’s Q would be like 91%-92% or so ??? While my results are, as you can see from the screenshots, 96.93% for the 1st scan and 65.41% for the scan ??? How can it be WAY too far off ??? Is the DRU dying or it’s not up to the task ???
[QUOTE=kg_evilboy;2512091]Try doing an Optiarc scan with Nero CD-DVD Speed or Nero DiscSpeed, preferably at [B]5x[/B] speed, [/QUOTE]
You said to scan the disc in Optiarc with CD-DVD Speed at 5x. I will do that but could you be a liitle more specific on what I should look into after I did what you said ???
[QUOTE=kg_evilboy;2512091]and most important a [B]Transfer Rate Test /B to find out whether that end really causes reading difficulties. Just don’t forget consumer drives aren’t really “accurate” anyway, no way can they be better than expensive factory testing devices like DaTARIUS or Almedio :)[/QUOTE]
I understand enough already the pros and cons about doing scans with consumer drives and also tha scans vs TRT thingy. So I can live with any ‘inaccurate’ results. But what I don’t understand is very basic, as in why said scans differ SIGNIFICANTLY ??? Is the DRU dying or it’s not up to the task ???
Thank you for the info, I really appreciate it and I’m really sorry for saying this but I think you haven’t really answered my question ???
As in why did I have TWO different results when in fact they’re both scanned at the same speed (4x), with the same drive and software at a different time ??? Like maybe if I did a 3rd scan it would differ also ???
Could you please shed a little light on this ??? Or maybe provide me on some kind of SOP to check what went wrong ???
Thank you very much for your kind answers !!!
