    I want to know how to test the quality of burnt discs. I was told that software exists for Lite-ON drives that can tell the PI errors, and thus the quality of the burn.

    I am no conaisseur, but would love some software that could meake these tests for me. I make backups of movies and data, so I wish to verify the quality of the burn after the discs are burnt.

    Regards,

    EDIT: I tried Nero CD-DVD speed,under disk quality, but it gives me an error "failed to initialize test"

    Yeah but that software says it's only good for LITE ON drives. I have NEC drives.

    Any insight?
