CD Freaks and VSO Software introduce BurnStats Preview

VSO has given us acccess to a large amount of support data, which we can use to generate statistics about burners and MID codes. We are currently testing pages where also display this information (per burner, and a general overview will be released later).

The following information is available to us:

[ul]
[li] The VSO software that has submitted this information, and it’s version number (ex: “C3 3.0.48.94” for CopyToDVD)
[/li][li] The burning device manufacturer and model string (ex: “PIONEER DVD-RW DVR-108”)
[/li][li] The firmware revision of the burning device (ex: “1.18”)
[/li][li] The inserted media identification string (ex: “RICOHJPN-W01-01”, a ricoh DVD+RW media)
[/li][li] A unique identifier for the media (a hash string, which differ for each series of media. this help to find out if media is fake of good quality brand)
[/li][li] Media Kind (a numeric code representing the type of media DVD-R, DVD+R, …)
[/li][li] Logical Write Speed (The information returned by the drive)
[/li][li] Burn Size (size in sectors of the data to be burned)
[/li][li] Written Size (size in sectors of the data effectively burned)
[/li][li] Burn Date (When it’s been burned)
[/li][li] Completion Time (Time to burn, from start of lead-in to start of lead- out, with Written Size will give us the real writing speed)
[/li][li] Status (a code indicating everything went ok, or in case of error, what kind of error occurred)
[/li][/ul]

Attached an image of how it could look like and were are very interested in your feedback:

[ul]
[li] Do you think this information is useful? We understand that there are limitations, but there is such a huge amount of data that we think it’s pretty reliable
[/li][li] Is there anything you think we should really list as well?
[/li][li] Do you understand the meaning of the data?
[/li][/ul]

Of course any other feedback is much appreciated it as well.

Feedback:

  1. Yes, the information is useful (I know how many people choose to use this drive, and the success rate of burning, etc…)

  2. I don’t think there is other extra info I need yet…

  3. Sure I understood :slight_smile:

Thanks for the work again.

Good idea!!!

I like Copy2DVD4 as well due to the info on the log but depressed at the 20x write speeds with the leadin and lead out only.

As a Gold Member of VSO I am really happy about this.

Excuse my ignorance, but where did the BurnStats go?

I found the burn stats in a cached version from Google:
Google cache of page

But It’s not on the real page anymore:
