[QUOTE=eric93se;2644470]Are there any online stores in your neck of the woods that are reliable?[/QUOTE]
Yes, but none of them are specialized in computer parts. Main problem it’s that basically there are few importers and the rest are resellers, so everybody sells the same.
I’ve been busy searching through the forum, comparing models and graphs, realizing how naive I have been about this for years :p. Ironically, from what I have seen, it seems that the best option are the slims , when talking about quality of burning. Most internal burners here are either LG or Samsung, from LG I have found the GH22NP20/21 and from Samsung the 222BB, also 223 and 243, none of these looks good in the results threads when burning Ritek F16 001, which is the “best” media that can be found around here… yes, this is hell.
So I’m almost made my mind for the enau108, which, from a test I saw in other site, seems to be ok with Ritek…anyway, I still will do some research the next days, maybe more luck this time.
But that’s not the reason for this post, I have some doubts with graphs from Nero CD DVD Speed. All this results threads makes me wonder about my own discs, so I got an enclosure and have been testing it with a BTC burner. There’s a disc I am using this days, and everything seems fine with it, so I made a scan:
It’s horrible, far from the accepted values. Also, I don’t know the meaning of the vertical lines, that red one drives me crazy. Now, what I don’t understand it’s that I have been using that disc without problems, it was burned more than a year ago with the same unit. I read somewhere that CD-DVD Speed doesn’t support BTC drives, maybe that’s affecting the reading.
I did the scandisc and it was ok.
Looks good and I can read the disc perfectly, so Â¿how I must interpret the high PIE?, Â¿Does that means that the disc will be unreadable in a short period of time? Â¿Or the scanning it’s wrong due to the drive?
Finally, if someone knows of a good manual/tutorial about the interpretation of these graphs, please post it here, all I have found are the descriptions of the program options.
