can I get people to wade in on the reliability of Qscan(full scan) or wether there is a better way to test the reliability of media?
This has been discussed in numerous threads,
but basically QScan is not a reliable judge of
blank media quality, but only a rough estimate.
The only way to know for sure is by trial & error,
burning discs and doing quality scans with
Nero CD-DVD Speed (scanned @8x) and see
what works for your drive in your system
and with which firmware.
