I just got rid of a cheapo EMPREX burner in favor of an NEC 3520A hoping my burn quality, speed and reliability would improve. It has for the most part as a spool of cheapo no name DVDs that would only ID as 1x on the old burner (despite the 8x label) now are binning to 12x!
Anyway, when I run the Nero CD-DVD Speed tool thingy I get the below graphs on two seperate burns. Interesting thing is that the PI Errors suddenly jump at the same point on both disks. Is this normal? Does it suggest a defective drive? Also the quality is still very good yes? Should I be concerned?
