I am convinced the DAE Quality test might not represent a drives ability to read a pressed CD with scratches, rather to read a CD-R with artificial marker damage. When testing about a year ago I found CDs with marker damage did not seem to show the strong drives out from the weak drives (when using real cds with scratches). It should be a good test for c2 pointers, but there seem to be issues (a test on a 230a only got 50% for c2, where in real life c2 pointers are in the 99.99% range).

It is not my intention to take anything away from DAE Quality as there is nothing else that can test drives independantly.

To brain storm a better method: 5 CDs, 3 damaged in varing degrees, a simple program to read and generate quality reports and c2 accuracy from those cds. Said CDs are mailled to people interested in testing certin drives, so the question is who is in? (and what drives do you have to test).
