I want to ensure that my burned DVD media have a good quality as they contain sensible data. Of course I do a comparison after writing the DVD. But as my writer was getting worse day by day (and has now returned to the dealer ;)) I’m not sure if there are any media which will soon not be readable anymore (due to scratches or just some degeneration).
Thus I’m looking for a way to measure the burn quality. I’ve heard that LiteOn Drives can read out some information about that with KProbe. I have a LiteOn CD Writer, so I tried KProbe with CDs. Did not look too bad But of course it cannot mount DVDs.
Now my questions: Does it make sense to measure the quality with KProbe? Does it make sense to but a LiteOn DVD-ROM to measure the quality? Or would I have to buy a LiteOn DVD Writer in order to do that accurately? Do you have any recommendations for a good drive?
