Is it physically possible to record “Weak Sectors” onto a CD-R, or must they be pressed into a CD. In other words, if CD-R drive manufacturers wanted to, could they create a drive that could write all regular bit patterns correctly?
I’m sure this would be a sensitive topic since they would upset Macrovision. Is it possible that Macrovision makes it “worth their while” for manufacturers to not fix EFM encoder shortcommings?
What if I had a .jpg file (or any type of file) that contained a regular bit pattern? I could write this file to disk, but not be able to read it back? It seems that this would be a defect of the drive, no? I’m sure this is a remote possibility, but I would think it still could happen.
