CD/DVD Record Count?

Recommended Posts

Just now noticed something when using a drive I don't normally use for burning DVD+RW's to. This line from the log:

 

 

I 13:40:05 CD/DVD Life Record Count: 36 - CD/DVD Record Count: 12

 

 

What exactly is the CD/DVD Life Record Count and the CD/DVD Record Count? Is it something that your drive has to support in order for it to be visible? Is the number of times the disc has been written to or the number of times the drive has written to any media? What's the difference between the two values?

 

 

Thanks! :thumbup:

I burned 2 discs in a row and it still says the same thing. That the Life count is 36 and that the other is 12 on both burns. So, now, I'm confused. :unsure: I don't know what these values could possibly be.

It says it's the number of CD's/DVD's recorded on that drive. However, my values never change, even after I burned 2 more discs. Unless the disc is not being counted as another new disc each time because it's rewritable. IE it's the same disc just being erased and rewritten.

 

 

It's apparently based on what kind of drive you have. This drive in question is a LiteOn, so, maybe it's unique to LiteOns?

Yes, it's a LiteOn thing. I just noticed that info being reported in one of the LiteOn tools and thought I'd add support for reporting it too. I have no idea what it's really reporting on or how it works - sorry!
