As you can easily see, I’m a “brand new” user.
So, please excuse me if i should make any error.
I’m posting here because I’m not shure if my question is more pertaining to “HW” or “SW” section.
Ive been asked to build an application that run a test set on a huge number of pressed CD-A before ripping them.
Specifically, they want to have the results of the following tests (referred to Optidrive Control definitions)
-DiscQuality (C1, C2)
-BLER (E11/E21… BLER)
I need some help about tests.
- I don’t still have bought a driver dedicated to test
- I don’t still have decided the software too use.
Using OptiDriveControl 1.70 I was able to programmatically set pathnames and otput filenames, so the user has only to run “multi-test” and wait for the completion of tasks.
According to ODC documentation (july 2012 update), only a few driver models support all of the test required: some old BENQ’s and some old Plextor’s.
Not having a Plextor drive, I wasn’t able to check if Plextools/Plexutilities are “friendly” to programmatical configuration.
Finally… the question(s)
Has someone tested OptiDrive with more recent drives or it actually works only with THAT old drives?
If OptiDrive doesn’t… which could be the better choice?
- Buy a couple of old PX-716 / Premium Plextor drive and going on on Optidrive path?
- Buy a recent Plextor drive fully supported by PlexUtilities (and… in this case, which Plextor drives can support BLER, FE/TE and Disc Quality tests)?
