The demise of my 3550 as a scanner

this drive used to match pif’s with my benq 1620

Since you haven’t included a scan performed on your BenQ 1620, how can you be sure that your NEC 3550 doesn’t still match PIFs with your 1620?! :wink:

Just because there are some discs where two drives give similar scans, it doesn’t mean that they will do so for other discs!!! :disagree:

Hopefully it still doesn’t…

Is its burning performance still good?

scooby you hit the bullseye, drag you missed

after a lot of tests on the disk, it’s the nec 3550 that’s gone scan crazy
benq 1650 says my LG still burns good and sony yudens are still good media.
Burned an 8x disk with the nec and cdspeed from iso and it scanned 98
with the benq.

boy, I picked a heck of a disk to creat a thread after being named blank media and burning mod over at digital digest

throw the dice, let them fall where they may

the wookie

I only missed because your first post didn’t contain enough information to deduce what you meant without resorting to guessing. You also didn’t document your claim with a BenQ scan. :wink:

Just because there are some discs where two drives give similar scans, it doesn’t mean that they will do so for other discs!!!

here you have hit the nail squarely!

burned at 12x on an aging LG4163B
