Today Erik send us the latest beta for CD-DVD Speed. The upcoming v3.00 will support error checking with various drives (!) among with interesting testing features, like Jitter reporting with NU-Tech drives. First lets see whats new:

- Version Information



- New Options for Disc Quality Test



- Disc Quality Test found under "Extra"



- Supported Drives

Erik said that the following drives are supported:

- All NU-Tech drives (but only latest 3 models can report jitter)
- All Lite-On drives
- Most MSI drives but Sanyo based drives probably not. There is some basic support for Sanyo based drives but that doesn't work always.
- BTC DRW1108IM and maybe a few other BTC drives
- To be expected: BenQ and Philips

, and notes: "...Combo and DVD-ROM drives from these brands are fully supported (not just DVD burners). But some of them are very inaccurate unfortunately..."

- First Tests

- C1/C2 Error checking (CD-R Media with LiteOn SOHW-812S)



- C1/C2 Error checking (CD-R Media with LiteOn SOHW-812S) - transfer curve removed



- PI/PO Error checking (DVD+R9 DL with LiteOn SOHW-812S) - Max speed



As it seems CD-DVD Speed doesn't handle read errors and stops scanning...

- PI/PO Error checking (DVD+R9 DL with LiteOn SOHW-812S) - 4X speed



The results are nicer now, but the Disc score is zero (0), however the disc is working fine with DVD players...

Quick Conclusion:

CD-DVD Speed v3.00 *suffers* from poor graphs, compared with KProbe v2.xx. You cannot zoom in/out neither change scale/remove max values, combine charts and several other options. It does however support a variety of drives from various brands making it unique (at least with today’s information) at its field. The "Disc Score" number seems not very useful to judje a disc, since takes a rather scrict policy with C1/C2/PI/PO errors.

More tests coming soon
