Using Kprobe With SOHD-167T

Hi,

I have been reading through threads that say that Kprobe should really only be used with a Liteon burner (CDRW or DVDRW) rather than a DVD-Rom to measure PI/PIO errors for the results to have any kind of accuracy.

If this is the case would it be worthwhile using the SOHD-167T for Kprobe scans?

A DVD-Rom drive won’t give you accurate results, so it’s kinda useless.

Hey mate was wondering what software ou used with your dvd rom drive, i lost the pckaged Nero, Is there a patch or an alterative.

Julesau - You’ve posted the same question in 3 threads. How many times does it have to be pointed out that the 167T drive ONLY READS. It doesn’t burn, hence why Liteons tech support DOESN’T suck because they say “this drive only reads and does not come with burning software”.

Take the drive back to the shop you bought it from if you aren’t happy with the product, or if they have told you it writes anything. It doesn’t.

DVDroms don’t return accurate results for scans. You really need a dvdwriter to scan them properly.

You can use the DVDrom for your own use to check the general quality of the DVD’s which you have, but it cannot be compared to other results on cdfreaks as they have been performed with DVD writers.

why???

The main problem is that DVDroms do not support speed setting. If you set the speed to 4x then it will probably be 3x->5x, assuming your DVDrom behaves, which they don’t. Usually you have 1 speed setting. Max.

DVDwriters need the accurate feedback so they can adjust the laser power/etc. DVDroms are made from cheaper parts & just reread the section with the errors.
