I’d like to know how to check the quality of a DVD after I’ve burned it. In the past I’ve had DVDs that skipped and had other problems. While I think I’ve fixed the cause of those problems (changed media and updated firmware), I’d still like to be able to go through some of the old DVDs that I burned and check to see if they’re up to par without having to watch them all.
Now I’ve made several attempts at this before, but I quickly get lost in talk about three different types of disk errors and the density of errors per block and how you have to make approximations and it’s ok to pass a certain threshold for awhile but not too often and to ignore the spikes, except for the spikes you’re not supposed to ignore and yadda yadda yadda (eyes glaze over).
Could someone please post a simple test that I can perform in order to determine if my DVDs are decent or not.
I know that it depends on equipment and I know there aren’t any hard and fast rules, but give me some kind of ballpark…it’s certainly beat my current ballpark of guessing that everything works and hoping for the best.
