I just installed a new GSA-4163B today, and as long as I had the system open, I immediately flashed the f/w w/the new version A104–it arrived w/version A101. The first thing I did w/it was run tests w/Nero CD/DVD Speed, and I’d appreciate some help interpreting the scans, especially the Disk Quality test.
As you can see, about 1/3 of the way thru, the PIEs and PIFs took a big hop… seems to coincide w/the Z-CLV change at that point. The “Quality Score” is still high–tho I read elsewhere on this forum that the score doesn’t mean all that much.
Anyway, any help on the results would be appreciated. Since the 4163 won’t do a Disk Quality Test, I ran that on my NEC 3520AW. And just to make sure the disk itself was good, I threw in a Surface Scan for good measure.
So, is that “hop” a bad thing? What does it mean, exactly?
