[QUOTE=majty;2582989]Wow that was one fast reply!
Well I burned the cds at 16x (cant select lower in my programs) and the DVD at 8x (6,7x is what it always seems to burn at though…)
Doesnt both show C2 errors? Just one more than the other?
Im under the impression that any C2 errors at all is something to fear.
I dont own any other drive than this one, Im thinking about replacing it with a AD-7260S even though they seem to be of low quality (sorry for off topic)[/QUOTE]
Hehe, right place right time :D…and with this subject, I suspect there’ll be more opinions to come!
Burn speeds sound good to me
As for the C2 errors, yeah one scan does show more, but the key fact is it’s one single spike in exactly the same place, rather than say at the beginning on one disc and in the middle on the next. I’d expect some variation, expecially since MediaTek drives are more prone to overlooking errors than showing them, especially when scanning CDRs.
But you’re absolutely right, any C2 error is a bad thing - which is why, even though it could be a glitch, I said I’d reburn the discs just to be safe.
I’ve heard good stuff about the 7260S myself - so if someone can confirm it’s got an NEC chipset (I can never remember!), I’d say grab one - but I wouldn’t ditch the Sammy just yet, do you have room for both drives at all?
Best of both worlds.
EDIT: Thanks for confirming the 7260S’s NEC chipset, majty
