Is it possible

vbimport

#1

to make a plextools scan of disc showing PIE’s, PIF’s, POE’s, and POF’s and their averages in the same graph?

ty.


#2

Burst Test is the closest you’ll get to what you’re looking for…


#3

what values will it include?

p.s. i don’t have plextor drive… yet. im trying to figure out what capabilities does it have :slight_smile:


#4

you can get all the typical error scanning stats, just not all in the same graph.


#5

You can get the following combination of values in the same scan/graph with PlexTools:

PIE+POF (Sum8 test)
PIF+POF (Sum1 test)
PIE+POE+POF (Burst test)
PIE+POF (Basic test)

A scan is always done at 2x speed, so a scan of a full disc at High Accuracy (all sectors are tested) will take approx. 30 minutes. The disc can also be scanned faster by sampling only some of the sectors (Good/Middle/Low/Lowest Accuracy).

Plextor 712/716 drives in combination with PlexTools can also perform other scanning types: Beta/Jitter test, Focus Error / Tracking Error test.

The Plextor 712/716 drives’ DVD scanning abilities can also be used by the unofficial PxScan/PxView tools. PxScan can scan DVD media at any supported speed (2x, 2-5x, 3-8x, 5-12x, 6-16x), but will have to scan twice to get both PIE and PIF values. PxView will show the output from PxScan.

Here are some scans on a 712A drive of Verbatim DLP 8/12x DVD+R media. Scan #4 is a PxViewPxScan screenshot, the others are from PlexTools:







#6

hmm, so to get PIE + PIF + POE + POF i’d have to do at least two scans, and then there’d be no way to combine them into one screenshot… not nice :frowning:


#7

Yes, not nice… I’m beginning to like how easy I can scan my other drives with Nero CD/DVD Speed. One click to burn (create data disk), another click to do quality scan with all measurements combined. Perhaps we can ask Plextools engineers to “overhaul” Plextools PI/PO/Beta/Jitter test. :smiley:


#8

i may start using PxViewPxScan more…i think the graphs look cooler too :wink:
