I’m trying to get started with disc/burn quality evaluation software, disc scans, and that sort of thing. I guess I must start somewhere, and I chose Nero CD-DVD Speed for starters. I’ve read enough of the user guide at
and a few other sources to have a fair idea of what’s involved. I’ve also run quite a few Disc Quality scans on my recorded DVDs, and I suppose my main question is…
Is the Disc Quality score a good enough indicator? My Disc Quality scores have been between 90-95% on a good sampling of my recorded DVDs. Is that good enough to say that my disc library is generally OK? In other words, should I worry about a 90% quality score? At what score percentage should I worry about the disc?
Or must I try to get more involved in evaluating the specific PIE and PIF graphs?
Also is PO the same as PIF? Is PIE the same as PI? There seems to be a gap in defining these terms between different software.
From what I’ve read, some gurus suggest that PIF is most important. Also I see that the Disc Quality score can be good when PIF is good, despite a relatively high PIE. Is this a correct summation?
I’m reluctant to post any of my disc quality scans here because I don’t see a thread for Nero CD-DVD Speed scans. KProbe seems to have the upper hand. Maybe I’ll get around to trying it also, eventually. In the meantime, can somebody steer me to more specifics about the Nero CD-DVD Speed software, specifically the critical evaluation of disc quality scans?
