Yes. And that is why I say that you should not scan too slowly, because in that case you might think the disc is ok, what it actually is not.
Here you can see that a properly recorded disc won’t show much difference at 4x and 48x scanning speed.
From previous scans I’ve seen from you, I think that your burner is simply of better quality than mine.
Even with really well burnt Yuden-T02 I get really shitty results at higher scan speeds.
Your points 1 and 2 apply to bad dvd writers, but are not generally true
That is actually a result that I wouldn’t call “very good” anymore. If it’s important data, I would prefer to burn at 8x and get results like in this scan, compared with the scan you posted: PIE max: 11 < 20, PIF max: 2 < 4, PIE total: 34674 < 67919, PIF total: 501 < 1448.
Not realistic? You mean the results are too bad for such an expensive writer?
No. Or perhaps yes, but that wasn’t my point.
By “realistic” I meant things like a disc without C2 errors and with C1max=22, which can’t be read at full speed: that is not realistic. The next scan I did at 10-24x shows some C2 spikes at the end of the disc, accompanied by rising C1 levels, and that is more realistic considering the drives slowing down at the end of the disc when reading at full speed.
Seems like you didn’t really follow your own advice not to buy media that is too cheap…
You see, I obviously had some cheap media, otherwise I wouldn’t have made the experiences which led to my advice. And since you usually don’t buy only one single disc, I happen to still have some left.
My next ones won’t be that cheap.
