Hi everybody, new to this place, trying to get my head around all this stuff. I have a question about Kprobe.
I have an 851s omnipatched with the GS0K fw and auto-bitsetting enabled, and the only other modification was I set the speeds on my media (TY 01 and Prodisc R02’s) to 8x.
My discs almost always have climbing error rates at the end of the scan in Kprobe, I tried the forced recalibration in omnipatcher but nothing seems to help. They are the Samsung TY 01 media, so I know it’s not a media issue, and it also happens on the Prodisc R02’s I got from accaproducts.
After reading about how letting the drive cool down after a burn before doing a Kprobe scan would produce more accurate results, I gave it a try and ended up getting much lower PI/PO’s than I was getting. But still the climbing errors at the end.
So I decided to let my drive cool after a Kprobe scan and then set the region that was being scanned to just the end part of the disc, and it gave me MUCH better results.
So my question is, if you set Kprobe to only scan the last part of a disc, are the results still valid? Or is it only acceptable to let it scan from the beginning?
Thanks everybody, this is a GREAT forum. And sorry for writing so much.
