Hopefully I am posting in the right thread. Sorry if I am not.
Anyways, I have a litey 411@811 and a sony 710a. I usually use kprobe on the litey but I have notice unusually high PI and PIF errors on Verbatim DVD+R media (MCC-003). They usually hit around 250-300 PI and 5-8 PIF errors. When I use the sony 710a with kprobe the score is around 45-70 PI and 1-3 PIF. What is more accurate? I use the 710a to burn the dvd and I am burning a full 4.36 movie. What is your take on this? I know kprobe was designed for liteon drives and I also know that sony uses the same hardware so that won’t be a factor right? Correct me if I am wrong.
I also scan the disc using NERO tools. I get around the same results give and take a few using the nero quality test. Transfer rate looks great on both drives and no errors reported through NERO either.
