That makes no sense.
Nero is wrong, and I didn't explain myself very well.
When Nero says "Ignore read errors" in audio, it's talking about BIG reading errors, such as when drive lost track and stops to reread again.
There's no way Nero can say "I will ignore small errors hardly audible", because those errors will be ignored ALWAYS (or a lot of times), even if you enable "Don't ignore read errors".
This is the nature of audio reading: there can be errors when reading and the drive and the software will know nothing about them.
So, that option in Nero only works with big errors when the drive isn't able to retrive a sector.
In Nero 5 there was a box to select how many times you want to repeat the reading operation.
I don't know how Nero 6 works: maybe it repeats reading until the sector can be read. If, finally, the sector can be read, it might contain errors -> this is when drive and Nero fail.
These are the kind of errors only detected with the programs I mentioned.
Having a Plextor drive, I, without doubt, would try PlexTools. As fast as Nero, and more accurate. You will learn which of your discs are in bad condition.
i never use index marks.
Well, if the source disk contain index marks, and you disable the option, the copy will not be "exact".
It's useful for hidden tracks.
Besides, most discs have index-0 marks, where pauses are "stored" (negavite numbers in most players). If you disable this option, those pauses will be at the end of the previous track (no problem with this, but it's not exactly the same).
As I said, if they can read without problems, you won't lose anything.
In your case, reading index marks works without problem, but the Plextor only reads at 8x with this option. It's said here:
"When reading with indexmarks, the drive only reads with max. 8x."
So, you'll lose speed.
