i mis spoke a bit in the topic, i did mean POFs
but the main question is this…
these errors, PIs, which the drive can correct, and POs, which the drive cannot correct, right? these erros deal with data integrity?
you might think of this as a abstarct question.
I know that some drives will get POs even with factory sealed disks, but then when you extract the info from it, what guarantee do you have that it will work?
i mean lets face it, i know i have some old CDs around with so many scratches that the error count would probably be off the charts! but i can still install programs from them. What gives?
i see the PO errors as sort of bad sectors on a hard drive.
i have seen burns of the 1640 with 100 POs and the new lite-Ons 165H6S? seem to be close behind… but that kind of burn is not common, how do we get by?
