DVD Error Correction Tests
In the following tests, we examine the DVD reading capabilities of the LiteOn SOHW-1653S drive with scratched / defective DVD media. For the tests we used CDVD Benchmark and Nero CDSpeed. The reference test media comes from ALMEDIO.- Single Layer media
This is a single sided, single layer DVD-ROM with 4.7GB capacity, and its surface has an artificial scratch of dimensions varying from 0.4 to 3.0 mm. The following transfer rate picture comes from the CDVD Benchmark v1.21 transfer rate test.
The LiteON SOHW-1653S managed to read this test disc without errors despite reducing speed towards the end of the disc, where strangely enough, there are no defects. Nevertheless, good performance.
This is also a single sided, single layer DVD-ROM of 4.7GB capacity. The data structure of the disc is exactly the same as that of the TDR-821, with the difference that there are no scratches on it but instead, defective areas of dimensions ranging from 0.5 to 1.1 mm. There are also fingerprints sized between 65 and 75 micrometers.
Similar behavior as with the 821 test disc. The disc was read without errors, but the 1653S reduced speed again towards the end. There is also a speed drop just before the area with fingerprints but no errors.- Dual Layer media
This is an 8.5GB dual layer, single sided DVD-ROM disc with artificial scratches of dimensions ranging from 0.4 to 3.0mm, on both layers.
Excellent performance with this test disc. The smooth graph is indicative of the high error correction capabilities of the drive with scratched media.
This test disc is a single sided, dual layer DVD-ROM disc with a capacity of 8.5GB. The only difference between the TDR-845 and the TDR-841 discs is that the first includes defective areas and fingerprints. The dimensions of the defective areas ranges from 0.5 to 1.1 mm and the fingerprints are sized from 65 to 75 micrometers.
One more time the transfer rate graph was very good. No errors reported but notice again the drop in speed just before the fingerprints.
The TDV-541 is a single sided, dual layer DVD-VIDEO disc, with a capacity of 8.5GB. The disc is based on the TDV-540 series which is designed for inspection and adjustment of DVD-VIDEO players. The disc checks the layer switch operation from layer 0 to layer 1 and also includes test pictures and test signals for DVD sound files. The current TDV-541 also checks the error correcting capabilities of the drive and includes scratches from 0.4 to 3.0 mm.
In most cases, this disc is a "headache" for DVD burners, but with the LiteON SOHW-1653S there were no problems reported.
The TDV-545 disc is based on the TDV-540 series. It is a single sided, dual layer DVD-VIDEO disc with a capacity of 8.5GB. The TDV-545 includes artificial black dots on the data surface, sized from 0.4 to 1.0 mm. It also has 65 - 75 micrometer fingerprints.
All the graphs above indicate that the drive has high DVD error correction capabilities.
