My First Scan




I have only just bought a DVD burner. I got a LiteOn 1693S KSOA and I want to be able to test written media for quality. I have d/l K-Probe 2.4.2 but dont fully understand it.

I was hoping someone could give me some 1 on 1 help as I have read the stickies in the media forums and still dont have a clue what the graphs actually mean.

Can someone please tell me if this is a good scan and what i should be aiming for?


This is a great scan. Your curve for PIE is nice an even and very low. Also the total number of errors is very low. Your PIFs are all below 2 which is great (you want below 4) and the total number is low. The only improvement would be PIF total below 250 or so, but that would be guilding the lilly.

Use this as a basis for comparison. This is what you want to see. Also, you might want to upgrade the firmware as they fixed a few significant bugs, particularly in CD burning.


impressive scan - nice burner + media combination :wink:
