I have two DVD-RAM discs that I’ve burned on an LG H42N. Both discs are 3X Optodisc MID, one is single sided 4.7gb, one is double sided 9.4gb.
Both appear to be working fine, Windows Autoplay detects the correct type of file, and TRT tests on both discs appear okay. The scan results (scanned on a Liteon 20A1H) are very sporadic however. One side of the 9.4gb disc shows PIF errors > 200, and PIE’s > 1200 for the first ~200mb. The other side appears fine with PIF < 4. My single sided disc has an area of a high PIF clump (PIF ~10), with no visible scratches or surface irregularities on the disc.
Should I trust these scan results? The data stored on these discs are an important hard drive backup, and I’m very leary in storing data especially on the side of the disc with the huge PIF mess. Or should I trust the TRT results which appear completely normal with no slowdowns?
Any recommended DVD-RAM media other than Optodisc? TIA.
