Walking OPC


Anybody knows what’s going on when the drive is doing walking opc? In short notice what is walking opc? Does it help to detect erros and original disc defects
while doing the procedure? :slight_smile:

Basically walking (or running) OPC is a real-time (continuous or in intervals) quality control. The reflections of the writing laser are used to determine the writing result as the burn process goes (similar to a regular reading process).

Plextor has an informative Text on-line: http://www.plextor.com/english/news/opc.html. Addidional Info can be found here http://www.plextor.com/english/news/pdfs/powerecwhitepaper-4.pdf and here: http://www.plextor.com/english/news/pdfs/intelligent-recording-whitepaper.pdf

So, what about the writing startegy? how does it works since it involves in OPC and walking OPC?

Nice reading though!
