Today I scanned a DVD I burned about 4Â½ months ago and was astonished by the decrease in PIE/PIF levels (measured in Plextools 2.21).
(Writer/reader: Plextor 712A)
Memorex DVD+R 4X (CMC MAG F01):
PIE (sum) 151926 => 97260
PIF (sum) 1888 => 1734
=> over 35% decrease for PIE and 8% decrease for PIF within 4Â½ months
At this improvement rate my DVD will be error-free in 4Â½ years, and already within 9 months it will have no PI Errors?! :eek:
The numbers above are completely legitimate, but of course my conclusion is faulty!!!
The DVD has been sitting unused within a DVD case for 4Â½ months, and both the original scans and todays scans were made on the same drive (different firmware, different PlexTools).
