In a given group of drives, only a successful reading test in the pickiest of them may be predictive of reading success in the other drives of the group...
Here, obviously, your standalone player is pickier than your Pioneer drive, and as it's giving problems while reading @1X, thought the Pioneer encounters no issue while reading @12X near the layer break.. :doh:
Logical conclusions can be:
- This disc has marginal burning quality or poor reflectivity, thus has varying compatibility with readers, you need to change blank or burning method.
- Your standalone player is overly picky, you need a better one (I mean as a reader).
- Both 1 & 2. :bigsmile:
