Semi Full Format

Recommended Posts

I was wondering if there was a possibility of adding a semi full format. As in inbetween format with zeroing sectors and quick format. I'm just curious to if it is absolutely necessairy for a new BD-RE to get zeroed ontop of a full format. Isn't the full format (without spare areas ofc) enough?

When I implemented the BD-RE formatting code, I noticed that formatting the disc didn't (or doesn't - things may have changed in firmware) actually seem to wipe / zero it, hence why the program does it.

 

I'm fairly sure that unchecking the 'prefer properly formatted discs' option does away with the zeroing phase.

Well... I like the way it would tell you early on if the disc can be written to in full without error and I'd kinda always expect a full erase/format to actually erase what's on the disc and leave it looking empty/blank (zero filled).

 

I guess it's just personal preference really.
