Scans are not the penultimate guide to quality discs, something which despite repetition, doesn't seem to get across to noobs
And for some reason the whole "Total" thing is getting plain silly.
The problem is ... noobs are getting mixed up in experts' discussions defining "Excellent burns" vs "Fantastic burns" ... the deciding factor being the total PIF counts, since all the highest PIF's is already only 1.
I have a "BENQ" 8x DVD-R disc (SONY08D1) here that scanned beautifully ... and I'm wondering how to artificially "Age" the disc so I can get a good indication of when it's gonna decay ..
Traditionally I've been very disappointed by sony media
/me decides to make a "Disc cradle" that mounts next to the output of the mega CPU heatsink on his x2 .......
Flowing air ... heat ... not so much light shrugs.
