I have been reading some time ago that the so called Â« round robin Â» tests have been moved from Japan to TaÃ¯wan.
I suppose that these tests are made by the burner manufacters on samples sent by the blank media manufacturers in order to adjust the writing strategy for a given media and so improve the firmwares
Is this right or not ?
I have been searching around in forums for more detailed info about these tests, but could not find anything …
So I like to know if somebody knows something precise about where and how these Â« round robin Â» tests tests are done.
My aim is to find out precisely which samples of a given MID code have been sent for these tests
For example Verbatim is manufacturing the same MID code at least in Singapore, Taiwan and India and I like to know which ones where used for adjusting the firmwares.
I think this could explain why we have all these differences in burning quality among a single MID code
A other question: these tests are first made when a new MID code come out. Who can garantee an absolutly constant quality of manufacturing during the whole lifetime of a MID code ?
