    Re: EBU R128 "For Dummies" Questions

    Strong arguments for using the -18 value - and that's what I will do. (I did take schmidj's Google suggestion and a lot of it was way over my head - but I got enough to convince me to go with -18.) ...

  7. Re: Individual Bad Frames & Secure Rip Abort Settings

    So....just making sure I understand here....with c2 enabled, dBpoweramp uses this to mark (i.e. identify) bad frames. If the Maximum Re-Reads value is too low, you are limiting the number of times...
  8. Re: Individual Bad Frames & Secure Rip Abort Settings

    1) I've been told on another forum that it's not a good idea to enable C2 Support even if my drive supports it - because they don't always do so "well" & that errors can get through. On the other...
  9. Individual Bad Frames & Secure Rip Abort Settings

    Re: Understanding Ultra Secure Settings

    Hi Porcus,

    Mark,

    You may want to check the CD you used for your black triangle test. I had to create a second one. My drives are both HL-DT-ST DVD+-GH50N. Originally I started my triangle's point...
