I just started using this with my Lite-On dvd-rom and I have been getting GREAT results on it compared to what cd/dvd-speed shows

anyone know why this is?? I can post screenies from both if that would help

thx

You’re probably seeing the different results because of lower sampling rates in DIP, and/or different ECC sums, different scan speed, etc. It’s the drive, not the program, that reports errors. A program can miss errors, but it can’t create them, so any program that reports fewer errors on a specific disc is highly suspect.
Scanning with a ROM drive is equally suspect, but you would do well to stick with Kprobe or CDSpeed.
