[QUOTE=Arachne;2113480]Most NEC drives are good for doing what’s called a Transfer Rate Test in CD-DVDSpeed, but as it’s not installed I guess that’s not an option?
Does the disc playback (if it’s a movie) OK, or can you read the data back to the HDD without error (if it’s a data disc)? If yes to either one of these, I wouldn’t worry too much.
But other members, who’ve perhaps used their 182Ds for scanning, may be able to shed more light, so hang in there :)[/QUOTE]
I would install the NEC, but it was virtually in heaven when I removed it lol. I did complete a scan with another DVD with the same media, and I had surprising results. The first layer was a mess, but the second layer was virtually no Pi. So the opposite of the first screencap.
I’m completing a ‘benchmark’ test right now which is what I think you may be talking about? But with my Samsung.
And yes the DVDs I have burnt have always played fine on my standalone DVD player for films.
