I burnt some CDs with my LiteOn 2410B, then I ran CDSpeed and it reported thousands of errors.
then I took those same CDs to a friend’s PC and ran CDspeed wit his LG 48x writer and it reported NO ERRORS!
How can this be?
Now, I have some possible explanations of this:
- My LiteON is a lot better at detecting the errors and the LG writer sucks at detecting the errors.
- The LiteOn sucks at reading/correcting the errors while the LG is good at reading/correcting the errors. Now, suppose this is the case, what is the solution to this problem for my LiteOn, is there anything I can do to make my LiteOn read/correct errors better.
My other question is, lets suppose I continue using this LiteOn, does that mean that over a period of time these errors will “spread” accross the CD?
Also, I have a basic question about the type of errors reported by CDSpeed… what errors are these? Are these errors created during the WRITING of the CD or during the READING of the CD? Now, analytically speaking, since the same CD gives thousands of errors on my LiteOn but NO ERRORs on the LG drive, I am inclined to beleive that these errors are “READING” errors.
