how can I check best the result of a burnt CD and/or DVD with respect to data integrity/durability?
Background of my question is that I normally collect data on my HD over several months (photos, downloads, …) and then write them to a CD/DVD just before I want to delete the stuff in order to get free space. Everytime when I press the button [delete] I have that bad feeling of possibly losing the files forever…
So I normally perform a “disc test” first. Whatever that should be. Is it (e.g. with PlexTools) - in case of a
CD-R: a C1/C2 Test?
DVD+/-R: a PI/PO Test with sum1 AND sum8?
or a PI/PO Test with sum1?
or a PI/PO Test with sum8?
or one of the other options?
What does the “CD/DVD Test” in Plextools do?
Are there any other good Tools that do such tests more accurately?
How about Nero CD/DVD-Speed?
Please give me all your opinions…
