Why does everyone here use KProbe2 scans instead of the disc quality test in Nero CD-DVD Speed? Is Kprobe just generally better or more accurate for Litey drives?
One thing that bugs me about KProbe2 is that it doesn’t show the graph as the scan progresses, so you have to wait until the full scan is done to realize if you have a bad burn or not. Sometimes you can tell just with the total number of errors or by intelligently guessing from the rolling average, but I wish it would show the graph dynamically. Failing that, have a column for PIF Max instead of just Current, Avg, and Total.
I am posting a Kprobe I just did on a Sony 8x DVD-R. Very disappointed. I had noticed my Benq (SONY08D1) media weren’t as great as I initially thought, so I burned this disc using genuine Sony which so far have been VERY clean for me. This scan was perfect except for one region with a seriously ugly continuous cluster of PIF errors.
Is this a crap burn? Should I definitely re-burn? I am giving the disc to a professor with a set-top that may be old; I want to make sure it doesn’t skip. Damn media problems…
