Nero CD-DVD Speed: Advanced DAE Error Correction Test
I ran the Advanced DAE Error Correction test with the bad Audio CD prepared in Nero CD-DVD Speed to check the drive’s ability to process errors that occur during the audio ripping process. The program determines how many C2 errors should be found by the drive and how many errors the drive actually finds, and then produces C2 Accuracy and Quality Score parameters which reflect the efficiency of the hardware error-correction logic in the given drive. Unlike the previous test, this one not only tells how many errors occur as the drive is reading an audio CD, but also evaluates the drive’s ability to find such errors.
The results presented on the screenshot show that the hardware error-correction logic of the LG drive is far from perfect. It is not a good finder of C2 errors, missing in average one error in each three. This can hardly be acceptable for working with damaged media. The results of the previous test also look dubious after this one.
