Is there a program that will scan disks for C1/C2 and PI/PO errors with my Plextor 708A? Or will I forever regret not buying a 712? ;x
No, this does only work with a 712A.
Here is an idea:
If you buy a lite-on 812 drive that will cost you about $70 and you
can use kprobe therewith.
The price of PX708A and 812S will be just a little bit more than
the price of PX712A. Moreover, you will have 2 drives.
I suggest that you should buy a 712A to do the test.
708 use sanyo’s chipest,but I think it won’t support any functions of scan disc error forever.
BUT the preformance of 708 is really VERY good !!!（as good as 712A，except for Q-CHECK ；））
But not as good as some cheaper drives. Sorry to say that!
