its pretty crazy, i went from a drive with no scanning capability at all (tests stopped a few seconds in with any media on the hp640c), to a drive with seemingly perfect scanning (benQ1625). i dont think my NEC even knows what jitter is...
anyway my options seem sort of random, and no there isn't a 8x p-cav..
strange mix of options.. anyhow im still trying to find a batch of CMC's that aren't crap, so far HP are the only ones. TDK is doing OK, still testing tho. im finding it really hard to correlate scanning results with actual playback.. running this stuff on my 10 year old APEX dvd player and an equally old dell laptop drive that has never been upgraded i find that even the worst staples brand cmc's burned at max and showed a 0 QS typically played all the way through without any pauses or skipping while Sony DVD+R's with near perfect scanned quality (~96) sometimes stop playing halfway.
bah, i dont know whats going on.
