READ ME :wink:

Looks fine, but READ ME :wink:

These threads don’t belong in the Blank DVD Media Tests forum, but rather in the Blank Media (parent) forum, as scoobidoobie quite correctly points out.

Threads merged and moved.

disc quality for 1x-16x MIT…not looking good need suggestions on whether its my burning speed or what…


I suggest you READ THIS and post in the appropriate place, if you would post in the right place then you might get help. :wink:

This thread does not belong in the Blank DVD Media Tests forum - that forum is only meant for posting tests results and not for discussions, and there’s an ANNOUNCEMENT explaining this and also posting guidelines explaining it in detail, and there’s a sticky thread stating that THIS IS NOT A DISCUSSION FORUM!!!

This thread has been moved to the Blank Media (parent) forum.

i was warned by scoobie…learned my lesson sorry guys…i know what to do now in the future i am learning…sorry

UMKANE, there are two things in your scan that don’t look good:

There’s a small PIF peak at 0.7GB which is probably caused by dust or some other surface defect. It’s probably nothing to worry about.

There’s a PIE plateau starting at 2.8GB with out-of-spec PIE (should be 280 or lower). Since you state nothing about burning speed, I can only speculate that it might help to decrease burning speed by one step.

What was your burning speed on that disc? Try at 8x or 12x next time. Also I don’t know if the drive is a reliable scanner.

my burn speed was 12x…and these are copies of a copy and i posted under the nero section can not get nero to accept the change down to 8x…sorry learning what to post here and again sorry about the posts earlier i know now…

Burning data from a DVDR will not cause any problems or differences to data or quality (as long as the disc can be read back ok). So there should be no problem in you copying from a copy.

I’m confused at what you mean by nero wont accept the change down to 8x?

Pioneer is not reliable for scanning , it tends to show 10 times PIE than when scanned with LiteOn or Benq .

can’t find it anywhere to knock down the burn speed seriously…maybe its me i don’t know i’ve look everywhere wants to burn at 12x all day long actually starting to use clonedv2 cause it will let me but would rather use nero

In Nero Burning ROM, you can select burn speed in the final tab to the right, just before you actually start the burn. You can also burn with something such as ImgBurn (with image files such as .ISO files), or you can use CD Burner XP Pro, both of which are free. CD Burner XP Pro actually seems to be a decent program, but it took me some time to figure out its strange way of changing its settings and its stupid default settings.

Threads with similar subjects by same author merged.

That Pioneer drive is not a reliable scanner at all. Mine isn’t, yours isn’t and the other members of this forum with that drive use a Lite-On or Benq to scan as they are reliable.

Pioneer is one of the best drives for burn quality.
Pioneer is one of the worst drives for scanning discs.

well i have only been using nero to backup a copy thats already been ripped and so on… besides that i’m using fab & clonedvd2 for everything else…i mean the movies play fine just don’t want it to kick me in the butt down the road but yeah just before i burn it only gives me max and 1x as an option…but i brought this up in the nero forum so i’ll leave it be there…thanks guys
