Is this media an old one? The MBI-media I bought last years have much higher error-rates

This is qiute new, I bought it like a month ago in an electronics store. It says it was made in EU but I doubt it according to the hub code…
Or maybe because I tend to scan on 4x speed?

Don´t think it´s because you scan 4x.

My experience with DVD-media is that lower scan speed shows lower PIE, but PIF stays the almost the same.

Exception is very old media which causes truble if read faster than 8x/12x

Yeah, this may be true for DVD media, but for BD-R I don’t think so, in my experience. This MBI media seems to be a good batch then :slight_smile:

Yep, much better than all of my MBI of the last years (Maxell, Edeka, o-fiz, Platinum)

Scann BD-R is a different thing, especially the most used scanner, LiteOn iHBS x12 is a weak reader and shows much higher error-rates at higher speed. But I still use highest speed to compare my own burns, it´s not really possible to compare with other users. Even I have some
iHBS 112 which show extreme differences at scanning.

My LG BH16NS55@WH16NS58 is much more stable on higher scan speeds.

Yeah, that’s very interesting indeed. Increasing the speed is not really an issue for dirve :open_mouth: I think LG was always know for its good reading capabilites and for reading back discs other drives just couldn’t.
I’m suprised to see you also have a crossflashed NS55, yet I don’t see too much BD TL/XL scans here…

LG was better known for weak read capabilities but good write quality, LiteOn vice versa

I crossflashed my 55 to have an alternative for scanning BD-R. And the 55 with original FW can also write to BD XL.
