Last time I even said the words “CATS” in this forum, my post was nuked. I will refrain from any real commentary.
…quite interesting indeed. Old news, but interesting nonetheless.
The conclusions reached as a result of this CATS analysis are important. I think people could learn a lot from taking into account what cdrinfo had to say concerning it.
To block quote cdrinfo:
The SOHW-832S certainly cannot be used for scanning DVD+R DL media since it reports much higher error rate than what SA300 series actually measured. Note that sometimes the drive starts reporting up to 1000 constant rate PI errors, not a good sign in our opinion.
I’ll leave it at that for the time being.
