I’m new to Kprobe but not to burning DVD’s. In an effort to get the most player compatible recordings of movies I make I’ve tried hard to stay with the best hardware and media. I currently use a Plextor 708A (w 1.04 firmware), and TyYu discs.
I thought maybe I could use Kprobe to get some idea about the quality of burns I was getting in this config. I’ve installed the latest version and since Kprobe does not support my Plex. drive, I’ve run the tests in a Liteon DVD ROM drive in the same PC.
I accepted the defaults except for changing the max speed to 4x which seemed to be what the othere posts said I should do.
I’m fuzzy on a couple things:
Does checking a disc with Kprobe in a Liteon ROM drive made with a Plextor burner produce usable data? That is, if it says it’s bad or good reading it in this Liteon ROM drive, is it and should I expect good results on DVD(-r) compatible players? Is this a reasonable test of any kind of external player compatibility?
I never did determine what to look at inside Kprobe after testing in the posts. What I got out of what I read was with ECC=8 (default) I should not have any peaks greater thatn 280 PI… Can someone tell me what to look for to determine if the read is good or bad?
I’ve attempted to attach a sample output.
Thanks for the time to help.
