I installed my PX 760A a few hours ago, I burned my first DVD, and wanted to run a quality test on the result.
My first deception was that Nero CD-DVD Speed cannot be used with the PX 760 (I had a Benq before). Thus I turned to Plextools.
The results are not bad, but a detail is quite frustrating in the PI/PO tests :
I cannot set the appropriate range for errors. In the 8 sum test, the range choice is 500 or 100, and my PI errors peak at 22, with an average of 5,65. In the sum 1 test, the choice is the same an my PIFs peak at 3 ! The graphs are hardly useful !
I must have missed something because I saw on another thread (where the quality results are posted) that people have Plextool graphs with ranges 10 or 20. I saw also that they have a nice text under the graph showing the results and the test conditions. How do they do ?
I noticed also that most of the tests are made not with Plextools but with CD-DVD Speed or with Kprobe (of course using an appropriate drive). Does it mean that Plextool is not very reliable ? Or it is not very convenient ? Does it mean then that if you want to run quality tests systematically on all burns it is better to have another drive ? (I have a Benq 1640 but it was built-in and I had to unplug it to install my PX 760. Is there a way to use it ?)
