Good discs do not show C2 errors at all.


#3

So is there anything that I’ve been doing wrong or is it the drive?


#4

Probably the discs are ok but the 4163 as a reader finds fale C2’s. Don’t you have another drive to test your CD-R’s?


#5

I’ll dig up my Lite-On DVD reader and give it a try.


#6

What I find more interesting is the fact that LG does not supported in CDSpeed’s disc quality test. That is what I have read here and that is what my drive shows on both DVDs and CDs. How did you get that?


#7

Is checking c2 error with 4163B possible??


#8

for CD yes…but only to version 3.61…above the disc quality test is not avaible…i dont know why…

all LG drivers support c2 errors return…


#9

Just for CD with V3.61???

Thats not good


#10

I test this option to version cddvdspeed v3.55 and earlier. Sorry v3.61 may not work i not tested this version.
