KProbe difference between 2.3.0 and 2.4.2?

I have scanned the same DVD with 2.3.0 and 2.4.2 versions of Kprobe and got different readings. Should this happen or have I got the settings wrong. The DVD was burned on a 812s@832 using VSOB 8x speed. Ritek R03-02.

i think even if you used one version you could get varying results everytime.
scan a disc then eject, reload disc and scan again using same kprobe, i bet it varys.

Which ever way you look at it that disc is not long for this world :slight_smile:

You could use the same version of Kprobe and scan the same disc 3 different times, and get 3 different results. But the results should stay relatively close.

Gentlemans…you forgot one important thing.

ECC block sum for PIF´s in KProbe 2.3.0 is 8. In Kprobe 2.4.2 it is 1.
In other terms, the correction is more, so to say “accurate” in 2.4.2, resulting the drive/KProbe to repport less errors.
Hmm, did I get it right rdgrimes

Be careful when comparing to scans done with KProbe version 2.3.0 (and all v.1.xx)!

:wink:

Thanks for that… So if I just keep using 2.4.2 set to read at 4x speed, PI Sum 8, PIF Sum 1 then I should get a more accurate reading of the quality then using 2.3.0…? I hope I understood that right?
