Firstly, all the details and technical hoo-haas:
Burner: TDK-DVD1616N [Rebadged NEC-3500A]
Firmware Used: Stock Firmware V2.C8
Tester: TDK-CDRW523252BC Fi [Rebadged Liteon SOHC-5232K]
Firmware Used: Stock Firmware N7E1
Reason I have to use different drives to test is because the burner does not report PO/PI errors. Some have told me that that it might be possible with an update of firmware but I dunno. If you all can advise me in this matter, please do so. I understand by using a different drive to burn and test, the results might not be accurate. But oh well, it gives me an idea Anyway.

I burnt the DVD at 4x using Discjuggler and did a verify with discjuggler itself. That turned out ok. After that, i transferred the dvd to the tester drive and did a PO/PI scan using CD/DVD speed. Here are the results.
Drive: TDK CDRW523252BC
Selected speed: Maximum
PO failures: n/a
Number of samples: 81667
Average scanning interval: 1.26 ECC
Glitches removed: 9
So question is, are these scans all right? Or Do they suck? Can I continue to use these media type to burn my DVDs? I used some sony dvd’s before and i had a worse results and these seem perfectly fine to me. Traditional testing (Copying the whole thing and pasting to HDD) works fine.
All comments are welcomed. Hope you experts out there can point me in the correct direction. Please let me know if I should post any more info regarding the test.
