Older media from CMC, more than 10 years old. Unpretty at the end, but still better than actual quality @ PIF

Disappointing performance from the 7283S

Why is DiscSpeed 4.7.7.16 used so frequently today?

It worked for me since many years, can be started without install and I don´t see an advantage with newer, fatter versions of it; at least not with my scan-drives

Without install?

The relation between PIE and PIF is somehow different than usually.

Odd scan-results

Why is there a CQ-spike?

Could be the writer, sometimes I have extreme different results with my older writers, especially with Plextor.

The old (bought more than 10 years ago)HP-branded CMC-media is good media with a good writer
