Just purchased 15 packs from Microcenter. Burned with a LiteOn 811S @ 832S (@ 2.4x) and a new NEC 3540A (Liggy & Dee 1.W7) @ 6x (~5.1x average). Both using similar systems and software (DVD Decrypter 3.5.4).
Scanning performed with KProbe2 using the LiteOn drive @ 4x speed.
Most of the discs seem to have outstanding quality (worst case is a short burst of 50-60 PI after the layer break). However, there are some where there is a persistant streak of anywhere from 500-1000 PIs, either before or after the layer break. Goes without saying that PIF goes out the window at those same points.
Any have any ideas? Even though they were $2/pop, I’m not rich enough to throw out bills like that
