Kprobe:


Hi!
I have made some tests with RITEK R03 DVD+R, but i have used Nero DVD-CD Speed to scan those discs. I want to post them here. However i can see that all of you use KProbe! Is it better than Nero CD-DVD Speed? Do you prefere that i post those tests, but with KProbe?
Regards!

Here’s some tests on 1213



Comments: Crap? any reason mine are so bad and everyone else
so good. my drive burns RICOHJPNR01 good but not these. last
time ill get these! glad it was only 50! wish it was only 5!

It’s your drive dude! I have an 401@811(HS0Q) & I get pretty much the same as you but burning at lower speeds helps.

What’s pretty amazing to me is code65536’s results, Max PI 12 / PO 02 yet when he scans with Nero CD Speed at full speed the drive needs to slow down to read the disk.

My 401@811 some times shows up to PI 20 / PO 300 but the disk can be read with the same drive & my Pioneer DVD-ROM at full speed with out slow downs!

I think all users should really post PI/PO & transfer rate tests too.

Heres a scan of RitekR03-02 burned @4x on 812s US0Q with highest values deleted.


RitekR03-02 burned @6x 812s US0Q doesn’t look nearly as good.


It is funny how drives can differ. I can’t get near the quality you got on your 4X but my 6X is actually better:

http://club.cdfreaks.com/showthread.php?t=104756

All burnt at 2X with a 401@811.
First is a Ritek G04 DVD-R (4X) to compare with the Ritek DVD+R R03’s (8X)

Sold as “Ridata” as a 50-pack in a red wrapper, no spindle! The discs are just all stacked together. Wish I had saved my spindle from my last disc purchase…

I burned at 4X, for better compatibility with my system (8X is a little bit too fast). Very nice burn, except for one odd spike. It had better be a nice burn, as these discs cost me $1.09 EACH (tax included)!


Had anyone try Ritek R03 with NEC3500 or TDK 1616n? :confused:

So, to summarize, R03 quality is highly dependant upon the burner you’re using…
with most Pioneer’s doing a pretty poor job on them…
