So, I recently got rid of my old LDW-451, because it kept writing crappy discs, sometimes even with quality media like TY. I had scans of TY discs which had average PI of 150+. For scanning I used Kprobe 220.127.116.11 (I think).
Now today I got 1693, popped in the sucky burns that I made with 451 and guess what? Kprobe2 is showing perfect results! I’m talking 2-4 average PIE. I used the default scanning options:
remove the spike
8/1 ecc sum
Was the error reporting on my old 451 completely crazy or have Liteon engineers made their drives report less errors with known good media?
So, what the hell is going on?
