Hello community I need help testing my backups. Well i just finished making a backup of my mass effect 3 game and i am using mkm003 discs burned with an ihas 324 b with burnermax firmware installed. The problem i have is testing my media using kprobe well so far i have thrown out about 3 of my media discs because testing results didnt seem to be on par. A couple of different sources said that;
XGD3 Quality Benchmarks (per TX and C4):
PI MAX should be 100 or less & PI Average should be 5 or less
PIF MAX should be 4 or less & PIF Average should be 0.20 or less
so far here is the best test result i have so far (in this particular case burned at 2.4x opc: off) :
which according to the xgd3 quality benchmarks standard, this copy is still not good enough, In fact PIF values were great. Now i have changed settings around in my imgburn such as; differernt speeds like 2.4x,4x, opc on, opc off, and thats pretty much it from what i have read as far as burning xgd3 games for the most part other than setting layer break to optimal there isnt anything else needed to be done. So my ultimate question is is there anything that can be done thath pretty much has been tested to guarentee these values to be on par or below these requierments? O and one last question while testing the other failed media i have noticed that the pi values start out low but from about 70% of completion pi value starts increasing steadily is there a reason for this? In a case of another one of my backups this did not happen it was pretty much even through out.
