A few days ago I made backup of a movie for my son. For change I opened a new 5-pack box of Fujifilm DVD-RÂ´s with mediacode; TYG02. Burned the first disc on NEC 3500 with Nero Express 188.8.131.52 at 12x speed.
Short after I run a KProbe scan of the disc and discovered a very ugly scan. Same as in pic 1 below.
Okay, maybe 12x is too fast for this type of media, was my first thought and I marked the disc as a “coaster”. Other burns that evening were at 8x speed.
Today I made new backups of my movie collection. Just out of curiousity I popped the “coaster” disc into one of my standalone players. Skipped the chapters to near the end of disc, and played up the movie.
To my surprise there wasnÂ´t any skipping or other distortions… Everything played back perfect, including all the 150 names at “the end”.
Tested in my other standalone and my PS2, with same good result.
Strange, donÂ´t you think so?
I rerun the KProbe test today. Below I also post the results from Nero CD/DVD Speed tranfer rate test and a Scandisc test.
Now I like to hear your experiences of bad KProbe scans (i.e. bad burns) and “good” playability.
Note. Right now I canÂ´t upload anything… attachments not working.
Okay, I will upload pics to my webpage.
