I’ve been reading the forums and have seen alot of talk about KProbe, and C1/C2 errors, and I noticed the new Nero now tests for C2 errors (the C1 test doesn’t seem to be enabled).
I’ve always used Nero’s CD Speed to check my discs after a backup, and normally use Fuji 48x media, (TY).
My drives are a LiteOn LTR-40125S with VZSOR firmware, and a DVD reader also from LiteOn LTD-163D with VGHR6 firmware, although with the DVD drive it doesn’t seem to be supported anymore on LiteOn’s website.
I’ve never had any problem burning, I use Nero, and it has always passed any Nero CD Speed tests, although I’m new to this C1/C2 business. My discs have always been readable.
I install KProbe recently, and while testing with the 40125S using older discs, and recent burns, I always get continuous C1 errors and sometimes a few C2 errors on ALL cd’s I test using this drive. I’m talking 100’s of thousands of C1 errors! This confused me quite a bit, so I decided to test using my DVD reader, and I hardly get any C1 errors using that, let alone C2’s. Maybe 10 C1’s at most, from what I can gather, a normal result of a good burn.
So why does my 40125S show so many errors in this test? After all, it IS the burner I use, you would think it would have no problems. It reads the CD’s fine, and according the the test results on my DVD player, writes fine as well.
