Jitter scan fails or not?



Hello Community,

I’m not shure if my Lite-On Drive reads correctly the jitter. Please look at the picture. It is a very good result, but the jitter is only shown in a very small area and the jitter value is very bad. Can it be?

I’ve burned an Verbatim DVD+R (MCC 004), speed 6x.
For the scan I’ve used an Lite-On SOHW-1653S.

I’ve noticed the problem too with other blank DVDs. The jitter is always between 15 and 16 and PI and PIF are always very good.

I think that my Lite-On fails to read the correct jitter because I read that PI and PIF are dependent of the jitter.


Here is a scan with Opti Drive. It shows the full jitter but is it possible, so good PI an PIF results and so bad jitter?


I’m not sure that the old LiteOn SOHW-1653S is reporting meaningful jitter values - it might not be.


Hm, ok. Other comments?
