aviationwiz is going to host the pictures tomorrow but here are the text results

all discs were burned using official Pioneer DVR-108 1.14 firmware and then scanned on the exact same Pioneer DVR-108 drive

disks were burned using DVD Decrypter in ISO Mode with MAX as the write speed selected

Taiyo Yuden TYG02 8x rated disks, burned at 12x:

PI Total - 211,889
PI Peak - 205
PI Average - 35
PO Total - 5,642
PO Peak - 101
PO Average - 2

Maxell MXLRG03 8x rated disks, burned at 16x:

PI Total - 466,261
PI Peak - 1386
PI Average - 169
PO Total - 269,225
PO Peak - 1,386
PO Average - 129

I'm glad I didn't delete the Movie ISO file that i burnt onto the maxell disk, lesson learned: Keep to the rated speed of 8x on the maxell's

sorry about the no graph on PO for TY media, forgot to check that in the program

but the question remains.... what is good and what is bad? It's obvious that the Pioneer has different tolerances then say a LiteON or Plextor or BenQ drive, so it would be nice to know what the real world results are for those discs as well. Do they play in other devices? Have there actually been any problems?

maybe the burns aren't as bad as they seem?

Although generally overclocking Maxell media doesn't work to well from my own experiences.

Picked up my number 21 of C't.
Hmm the behaviour for Maxell is very close to the CATS scans in it.
Maxell very high rise in the end.
TY scores much better no rise in the end but then again what TY did you use.
C't used Plextor if these are FUJI's or the OEM stuff then I think it might explain the rise. Error levels are mostly in line !!
Hmm interesting. Since so far other drives didn't match that well even when it was shape a long.

So next question is could you do scans off:
MCC 02RG20 12x
RITEK G05 12x
MCC 004 16x

Now also we need to know is what did Pioneer Upgrade in the firmware revisions.
C't used firmware 1.10
