I’ve recently discovered Nero CD-DVD Speed and after testing several of my CDRs, I’m a bit concerned that there may be a problem with my CD drive.
I’ve tested several CDRs from different manufacturers, different burn speeds, burned on different machines using different software. However, they all show a C2 spike in the same place (about 80% of the way through the disc). This also happens to be the same place that the drive reaches about x44 speed. When I limit the reading speed to x40, the C2 errors don’t appear. But surely if it’s a x48 speed drive, it should be happy to read close to this speed without showing errors. Can anyone shed any light on this? Is my CD drive about to become a coaster-maker?
For info, my system is:
Pentium IV 2.4 Ghz
80GB Seagate hard drive
