If PI errors are “good” errors… meaning they will not make dvd disks unreadable then what does it matter how many of them you have? I mean you can average 30 or 130 of them but if disc is readable anyway why would I care.
Is it that increasing amount of PIs will at some point slide into PIF zone?
Or is it that over time dvd surface, checmical, will likely to deteriorate with higher PI so after some time you’re likely to end up with unreadable disc?
Is it that algorithm that fixes PI is guaranteed to succeed as opposed to PIFs which are by standard fixable if there are maximum “8 in a row” (or something like that)? Although I am sure lots of dvd drives will be able to fix even worse results.
Can someone… C0de nudge nudge wink wink … shed some light on this please?
[PIs and PIFs remind me a bit of error detection and correction for linear information encoding… some stuff I learned about at one of the unversity courses]
