Good Morning! I just posted a "hello" over in the Newbie forum. Now I wanted to sorta jump in and ask for a bit of guidance on how I can best use, and contribute to, CDFreaks.
My "thing" is audio. I've been a recording engineer for years, but have only a basic understanding of DVD/CD media in terms of why and how it works (or doesn't work).
My main interest currently is burning "master" CD-Rs for use in either duplication (burning) or replication (stamping) of music CDs. More specifically, I am interested in how to test a CD-R that I have burnt with my Pioneer DVD-RW drive to discover any potential problems that I may have passed on to the replication facility.
Before yesterday, I had never heard of C1 and C2 errors, error rate measurements, BLER, etc! But since I got a batch of 500 replicated CDs back from the manufacturer on our latest project that will not play on about 25% of players, these things have my attention, BIG TIME.
So....with all the above information about me, can some kind soul here suggest the correct forum for me?
