Thanks dolphinius_rex. I guess it would be safe to say that is genuinely measuring C1/C2 errors, but that, as with all C1/C2/PI/PO measurements, the numbers you get are a function of the writer, reader and disc and will vary from what you measure elsewhere. I didn't expect absolute matches, but I did want someone else to confirm that what I was concluding was reasonable, and I believe that is what you have done.

Thanks again. I know you are busy.

It wouldn't be my first choice for a CD tester... but I wouldn't have a problem accepting the data from its' tests either :wink: ...well, that's how I feel for the moment. I reserve the right to change my mind with future further testing of course :D
