I own a TSST SH-S223F dvd burner that I wanted to use for dvd error scanning (because of "poor" burning performances, etc..., and to "preserve" my Optiarc for burning only)
I've read on the FAQ
"Q: Is the Samsung a reliable DVD scanner?
A: This depends on your individual drive. Some drives give good results (comparable to other well-known scanning drives), some others are questionable. So take the scans with a grain of salt unless you were able to verify them with another drive like a Liteon or Benq DVDRW."
So the question is, "is my drive a reliable one, and how to know ?"
I've done scans with 223F and Optiarc AD-7203S of the same crappy MBI dvd and results are quite comparables :

Samsung reports more Pi errors, but less PI failure... which drive should I believe ? Could my 223F be considered as "reliable" for scanning ?
Or what drive could I use to scann dvd errors (except Lite-on that are difficult to buy in France (that is why my english is so bad :/) ?
Thanks in advance
