hello cd freakers, i have bought a spindle each of 8x fujifilm dvd-r and dvd+r. the packaging says made in japan and the disc hub contain the correct information to indicate these are genuine TY media.
i get wonderful kprobe scans from the dvd+, just about perfect. but the dvd- give me consistently terrible scans, like the one below. i usually have the Y-axes on PI and PIF set to 240 and 4 respectively, and this would give me solid blocks of blue and red in the kprobe scan :Z …what could be the problem here? should i trust these scans at all? in fact the burned discs read just fine, so i can’t believe they could be as bad as kprobe is saying…?? but it’s a repeatable thing, always bad like this for the dvd- and always lovely from the dvd+. i will in future buy the dvd+ only since i think my lite-on likes + better anyway, but i am running out of them now and i still have most of the dvd- spindle left, should i use them up anyway and ignore kprobe?
