I’m new to Quality-Testing, but as I just received my new Benq 1640 + Verbatim 16x DVD+r (MMC004) I was wondering how good the quality is.
So I burned a movie with CloneDVD2 and then startet a Quality-Test with Nero CD/DVD Speed.
First the quality was very good (99%, max PO just 1) but then suddenly at around 3.7GB there was a real “storm” of erros for about 100-200MB (I would not call it a spike as it’s duration was 100-200MB). After that the error-rate dropped again and was very low (like at the beginning of the DVD). The overall quality was 95.
I read something about a spike in this forum, but I’m not sure if this is the behavior described there (sorry, I have no screenshot of the scan at hand).
I using the latest Firmware BSOB and have QSuite 2.1 installed, but did not alter any options (so no overspeed etc).
Any ideas? Is this normal or rather indicating a defective device?
