In reading up on various DVD drives, it appears that ripping, scanning, and reading have different meanings. I saw one person say that a particular drive was a good reader but not a good scanner. Can someone please tell me what is the difference between the terms? Thanks.

ripping - reading a dvd in data format and placing the read data on to a hard drive

scanning - using ner0 cd-dvd speed to check the burn quality of a dvd

reading - ignoring/correcting reading errors and moving on without data loss
