Good discs do not show C2 errors at all.

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

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?

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

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?

Is checking c2 error with 4163B possible??

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…

Just for CD with V3.61???

Thats not good

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