This question may have been asked before, but it’s somewhat complex so I wasn’t able to look it up on the search. My question is: say a single layer dvd is burnt “sucessfully” to a single layer dvdr, maybe while other programs are running such as the internet simulaneously downloading during the burn, & and when it is scaned the disc receives a really low score like 80 or under. Does this indicate a loss of data? If this disc is burnt to another single layer dvdr under better conditions, say with all other running programs closed prior to the burning & better quality brand of media, and this disc scans a high quality rating, is this disc as good as the first generation copy would have been had it attained the same rating? Or was there a loss of data or degration of quality as a result of the source disc for the second generation copy having a low scan rating?
Does a poor scan indicate a loss of data from the burning process?
