First of all I’d like to apologize if I’m supposed to put this thread somewhere else (since it’s mostly about Nero’s CD Speed).
I am going insane here…
I have a Lite-On 32123S (XS0X)
I have a Lite-On LTN256 (YH0X)
I have a Lite-On LTD613D (GHR6)
I’ve done this test with a lot of different media and I’ve NEVER tried burning at a higher speed than the media was certified for.
My latest experience is this: I bought some Verbatim DataLifePlus 700 MB (40x) CD-R’s and when I burn something and later check it with CD Speed’s Scandisc feature, I get errors.
If I check it with the CDRW, I usually get no errors.
If I check it with the DVD, I usually just get very few or no errors.
If I check it with the CD-ROM, I get massive amounts of errors!
I’ve tried burning at different speeds and like I said, I’ve tried a lot of different CD-R brands but the results stay the same.
The errors I get are almost always just “damaged sectors” not “unreadable sectors” but I’m not quite sure what to make of it.
Will all my drives still install a game that I have burnt succesfully even though Scandisc reports “damaged sectors”?
And am I just supposed to accept that I will never get 100% error-free burns if I use Scandisc with anything else than the burner (I don’t trust the burners results in Scandisc cuz almost no one uses their CDRW to install stuff)?
I have tried Scandisc with a Toshiba CD-ROM as well and it, just like the Lite-On CD-ROM, reported a LOT of errors.
I have also tried Scandisc with a Hitachi DVD-ROM and it, just like the Lite-On DVD-ROM, reported a few or no errors.
What am I to make of this???
Please help me, I’m about to go haywire on my Lite-On burner.
