What are the really bad compare failures?

Recommended Posts

I used to assume that anything with a compare failure was a coaster, but I got six in a row today and decided to do the comparison on another machine with DVDInfoPro.

 

The results came back between 92 and 99 percent, scores which I believe will playback fine in a standard DVD player.

 

So it would help me to know more specifically how a compare failure tracks with a PIE/PIF/POF or whatever.

 

The answer or links to the answer would be greatly appreciated.

There's little or no relation between the two of them.

 

Miscompares are normally caused by memory / driver corruption and not disc defects - which is what PIPO scanning looks at.

I guess I'm still confused a bit then, because when I just switched from TYG02s to TYG03s, I got two successful burns / compares on different drives after six failures.

 

I did not reboot the machine or exit the application.

 

I burned 8x with both media.

 

Guess I should toss out the TYG02. Hadn't had a problem with that media before.
