Thanks for the reply.
I'm kinda under the impression that buffer underrun protection is an inherent part of the DVD+R/RW format though. Since lossless linking makes it possible to suspend and continue the write process without any "gaps" appearing, then it functions just like the usual buffer underrun protection scheme, or am I mistaken?
From the Yamaha SafeBurn page you posted:
"SafeBurnâ„¢ buffer underrun error technology truly prevents buffer underrun errors. If data transfer is delayed, and buffer memory approaches a critical level, the drive automatically pauses recording and waits for the buffer level to return to a safe level. Once the buffer has regained sufficient memory, recording will restart seamlessly from the exact point where it was suspended.
The following points illustrate the precision and accuracy of Yamaha's buffer underrun error technology.
* Virtually Zero Gap Although it is impossible to actually measure.
The data gap is theoretically less than 1 micron."
1 micron is actually the same threshold for DVD+R/RW lossless linking. Seems like there's some sort of redundancy there.
Any additional thoughts? Just wanna be absolutely sure. Thanks.
