First off, for quality scanning, Pioneers aren’t the most reliable. For DVDs, you’re better off with a LiteOn or, if you can find them, BenQ or Plextor (760 or earlier Plexes, that is I think).

For CD scanning, smilarly, you’re better off with a LiteOn CD-RW, or a BenQ or Plextor DVD-RW drive.

That TRT (transfer rate test) is a bit worrying, though - were you doing anything in the background?

No nothing in the background I only use my computor for multitracking
(recording)and burning my cd’s.I burnt the same material again and got 17% quality I couldn’t put that result on because of site limit.
I took on board your previous advice and tried to obtain a plextor premimun
but no one would send to Australia (do they exist they seem mythical)
Another member suggested a Samsung as producing good cd burns…
but !I have tested scan c1/p1 3-4 times in a row and got vastly differing
conclusions.
thankyou again for your time


An early 112 series and possibly 212, I’m not sure, had a defect with CD burning. Search the Asus/Pioneer burner forum, there’s some threads about it.
