I've recently bought a traxdata 50 spindle, and despite maintaining the ritek brand they don't have the same quality as they used to...
I've spent the last few hours testing each of discs I've burnt and most of them have shown at least some c2 errors. However, they appear on different parts of the cd everytime I scan them.
I've downloaded and ran cdrtool's cdread for a more indepth analysis, and when I run a test on the damaged sectors instead of the entire disc there are no errors present! Although there were a few discs in the batch that consistently show c2 errors, most of them do not.
Does this mean the discs are ok and the c2 error results are the fault of the program / cd reader, not the cds themselves? I've compiled my results into a table, here they are -
Each row represents a different disc, and the "/" seperates each test performed on it. The majority of the results were made using cd speed's surface scan.
