Is this media any good…??, had some strange results using CDSpeed and Kprobe, but none have failed to copy all the file to the hardisk, and i have a Lite-On DVD-Rom so my Kprobe scans would be unreliable for you guys.

Thanks in advance.
P.S. : NEC 2500 A with herrie b5

One other thing, how would you know that it’s a good media or not from Just this media Code.
Thanks again :slight_smile:

Ritek media is very hit-or-miss. Some get lucky and get good ones, and some are not so lucky and get crap.

You can’t know until you try.
