Well, I will be burning a lot of dual layer discs and I need some form of scanning to decide on what media to buy for my drive.
Until now I had a Plextor 716A, but a Pioneer 111D is on the way.
Unfortunately Nero CD-DVD speed supports neither drive.
OK I know you are going to say “why use nero when you got plextools?” and you are probably right, but nero is so much simpler, and I don’t know how to check with plextools (any help is welcome here).
I tried a couple of scans with plextools PI/PO , but the result is always pretty good. Then I send the same discs to a friend with Liteon and his scans revealed much more weaknesses…
Basicaly, the PI errors were OK in both our scans, but his scans revealed several PIF , and with plextools I can’t find how to measure PIF , and the POF is always 0…
I should also note that my 716A is not a very good drive, it has problem burning several kind of media that are of average-bad quality. Basicaly it only burns tayio yuden and verbatim (real ones MCC002/3/4) properly.
However it seems to be fine as a reader, so I guess I can stil use it to scan (if I learn how to)?
Right now I am waiting for the Pioneer to arrive and I am thinking that since it has problems scanning too, I should find a way to scan with the Plextor…
Help me plz.
