Ok, just got some Memorex brand 8x DVD+R’s. MID: CMC MAG E01 (000)

I burned the first one at 16x - didn’t read in my XBOX =( the scans didn’t look THAT bad…

The second I burned at 12x - havn’t tried it in the XBOX, but the scans looked better…

(BTW, all scans are at 5x - 8 ECC)





#262

Here’s the 2nd burn at 12x (same image BTW)

EDIT: The 2nd disc did not read in my XBOX… I hope it’s this burn and not this Memorex brand that my XBOX doesn’t like… sigh…

DVD+R 8x LG (Prodisc-R03-003).
F/w stock 1.01.

  1. 6x burn, excellent.
  2. 8x burn, bad.
  3. 12x burn, very bad.

#270

your 8x burn is not bad at all. NEC reports way higher PIE, and your PIF’s are excellent!


#271

I don’t get it… :confused:
Perhaps I’m stupid,but I don’t understand how it’s possible that CD/Dvd Speed sometimes reports a higher quality score for discs with more errors…
I’ve seen lots of such scans …
At 1st,I thought it had to do with the amount of reported errors,so I started to compare those too,but there are still plenty of cases left… :confused:


#272

@Roadworker
The quality score is based on the PIF maximum. The higher your highest spike is, the lower your QS will be.


#273

Normally,it must be,but as you see,same disc scanned on 2 different drives,2 different versions of CD/DVD Speed and the 1 with the highes errors gets the best score… :confused:




#274

roadworker: Also depends on ECC… LiteOn is scanning at 1 ECC, Nec 3520 at 8 ECC (if not set to 1 ECC).


#275

True,but I noticed that by using CDSpeed 4 and 8X ECC,you get always a 95 % quality score if your PIF doesn’t go higher than 9, it doesn’t matter if there are 1000 of those errors or 5000 on the disc…
A scan with a total of 2OO PI failures and only 1 PIF that goes higher than 9,immediatly drops % quality-wise…people would think that 1000 of PI failures at value 9 give a worse disc quality than a scan with 200 PIF with 1 spike that goes up to 10…but it’s the opposite… :confused:


#276

I can’t estimate this burn as “excellent” with so high PI level.
Moreover, high PIF spike is stable.
