Pioneer 212D Low Quality Disc Scans

Postby fleshie on Fri May 11, 2007 6:15 pm

I just bought a Pioneer 212D and it's burning both DVD-R and CD-Rs fine. When I test the Disc Quality using Nero CD/DVD Speed scanning using a LiteON SHM-165H6S, the results are excellent. However, when I try using the Pioneer 212D drive that burnt the discs to do the scan, I'm getting very bad results. For CD-Rs, I would lots of C1 and C2 errors, and DVD-Rs, lots of PI and PIF. Can anyone explain this to me? Has anyone tried to do any scans using the Pioneer 212D? Furthermore, when I have the Pioneer 212D selected to do the scan for a DVD, I cannot select any speeds except MAX or 8X -- does anyone know why? Thanks for any help at all.

Here are some possibly relevant information about my system:
Core2 Duo
P5B-Deluxe

Thanks again.

You have the tools you need to do the quality scan with the LITEY. Pioneers are simply not good scanners. I think your results clearly indicate that. As many others will probably agree. I use a BenQ DW1640/DW1620 and Plextor PX-716A and PX-755SA for my scanning needs and they work great.

Yep, Pioneer drives just do not provide relevant/interpretable quality scan data. You'll have to stick with the Litey for quality scans. :wink:

I have received the same advice from other ppl, that Pioneer's just don't scan well. Just gonna stick with the LiteON and trust those results. Thanks a lot!
