I never did a Nero CD-DVD speed test, just the verify that you can run right after a burn. Does that run the same test as selecting DVD speed from the Nero Toolkit folder?
I was just concerned that the discs wouldn’t pass a Kprobe scan without an unrecoverable read error.
I just finished a Nero Full Erase at 4X on one of the Memorex (Philips 041) discs that wouldn’t pass a Kprobe scan before. I ran the attached Kprobe scan right after the full erase, and it completes now and looks pretty good.
Do you need to full erase a DVD-RW before you write data to it?
Come to think of it, the place where the Kprobe scans were dying before the Full Erase was about where the data would have ended. Is it possible that the area that had never had data written to it was causing the failure on Kprobe?
If a full erase should always be ran before using RW media, I never realized it. I just figured you would do a quick erase and start using the media.
If a full erase is needed, should I do one each time I rewrite the disc or just when I open a new one?
