but, as you said, i may be too nervious about the scans, this is the 1st time i use TY’s discs, i just try to figure a way out to determine the best writing speed, so in the future i could just burn them without too much thinking.
I have been burning TY and verb for quite some time, but only been able to scan (with a reliable drive, the LiteOn) for a little while, but IMO if you see PIE’s (the top ones) below 10~12 and PIF’s below 2 with the odd 2.5 and spaced out evenly across the disk without any big clumps, i.e. with a score of, or better than 90~93 then I feel the disk is very good, and to prove this the TRT test (transfer rate test) should be smooth all the way to the end.
From what I have read, it seems that people expect (I know I did before I read the threads linked below) to see nothing in a DVD scan and if they do then think there could be a problem with the disk when there more than lightly will not be and the disk will play fine in a DVD player because they run at ‘around’ 1x this is something I am planning to look into more, as I wonder if this is not the case as because I can here mine spin up the disk every minute as it loads data… but this is another thing, for another place
These are the threads I spent quite some time reading and think that anyone should do so if they really what to understand this scanning thing better. In fact all the stickies in the Media Testing/Identifying Software would not do any harm as there are a few new ones, I have yet to read.
