When does a read-error effect playback quality?

I have learned a lot here in the past few weeks I’ve been aware of this great community; and quickly learned the importance of K-Probe, Nero Speed and DVDinfo Pro tests in choosing the best media for a writer. But I have one question: How can there be numerous PI/PO errors indicated with K-Probe on a given DVD, up to the 280/30 level, yet the disk plays fine? Is the typical DVD player so good at error correction that it can effectively handle a fairly constant stream of read errors without playback errors?

Thanks :slight_smile:

Well, yes the DVD format has a pretty powerful error correction. But when the correction can’t handle the errors they might show up (or be heard).
