Background: I bought a TDK 8X Dual Format DVD Writer in Mar 2004. I burned many discs, and Nero 6.3.x.x always report “Verification Completed Successfully”
After 2-3 weeks, i take out my media again and try to read it in the tdk writer, either totally cannot detect the disc or a lot of CRC errors. These errors are encountered in the TDK writer itself. LG dvd-rom drive can read the discs but also got CRC errors.
However, Pioneer 8X DVD Writer and Sony Dual Layer DVD Writer can detect and read these discs without any CRC errors. Yes, I bought a Pioneer dvd writer as well to compare and contrast. I burn about 25 DVDs with the Pioneer [[a few days ago]]]
I have the K-probe 2.1.0 Test results of discs burned by the TDK and Pioneer:
Set A results belong to discs burned at least 2-3 weeks ago.
Set B results belong to discs burned by Pioneer a few days ago
Set C results belong to discs burned by the TDK, yes, burned TODAY only, and they seems to have good burning quality
I am presently staying in Singapore, hot and humid
I would like to find out for the Set A results, the PI and PO values, will they slowly increase over time (as in DVD media degrade over time) or the PI PO values will stay relatively constant long long time after burning
Then the Set C results contradict the Set A results.
I am back to square one
Thanks for taking the time to read this thread and i would appreciate any help
