I want to hear the opinion of other CDFreaks to a topic that bothered my quite long now.
I have burned and scanned many DVD+R DLs and I found the scanning results very irritating at times.
For SL media its easy. If theres a huge PIE/PIF block on the scan, its most likely unreadable.
But look at this DL example:
Judging by the scan, theres no way any drive could read this disc beyond the layer break. 969 PIE, 66 PIF peak.
Here’s the TRT in my BenQ DW1650:
As you can see, no slowdown at all. Disc plays great in my Xbox 360 too.
Another example (fake media):
I just dont get it how a disc can scan so extremely bad and is still perfectly readable.
