if i stop the scan and start a new one everything is fine.
see the pics below. that's the same disc, same drive.
I think I know what's happening here (but not why it's happening or maybe it's vice versa
I installed CD-Speed 4.10 at work 2 days ago and saw the same behaviour- huge error counts and then normal behaviour after stopping and restarting the scan. The same thing had happened a while ago at home- again after installing a new version.
So I think this (sometimes?) happens on the first scan after installing a new version of CD-Speed, but not afterwards.
Dodecahedron: did you just update CD-Speed prior to your post? As I said earlier, I usually use KProbe for CD's instead of CD-Speed, so I can't offer much experience on this count.
