With the list of LiteOn DVD burners still growing, and the list of alternative DVD scanning drives shrinking, a number of people are asking the age-old question: at what speed should you scan your DVDs? Unfortunately, however, the response is not the same for everyone. For users of some drives, 8x is perfectly fine and the better option for precise results; for others, 4x is required to avoid bugs and glitches in the scanning process; for others still, high-speed scanning is the only way to go with these drives.
Note that this thread is NOT meant to be used for discussion on the topic of Why high-speed scanning is good/Why high-speed scanning is bad.
This thread also does NOT address scanning CDs, as the general public of CD Freaks agrees that MediaTek-based DVD drives do not make good CD scanners. For more on this, please search the Media Testing/Identifying Software subforum.
Instead, this thread/poll is meant to be a good starting place for those people [with a shiny new LiteOn drive ;)] that want to join in the DVD scanning fun. So please, post your experiences with the use of LiteOn DVDRW drives to scan DVDs.
An example: if you have a SHW-160P6S, and scan at both 4x and 16x, select both the “5S/6S series [16x] @ 4x” option and the “5S/6S series [16x] above 8x” option. You can do the same for every LiteOn drive you happen to use for scanning.
The list covers most of the "retail" LiteOn drives. The iHAS/iHAP/etc drives are represented by the A6 [20x] and A8 [22x] series options, as that is the internal name for those drives. If you are one that chooses to scan at 6x, please choose the 8x option.
If you can’t perfectly “match” your drive with any of the options, please post your experiences with that model drive, anyway, as it can still be of use to others. If you have a specific reason for scanning as you do, please share that with us.
