The effective lifetime of the disc is better measured in ejections than
in erase cycles. Despite specification numbers of the order of a
thousand cycles, experience has suggested a practical limit at least an
order of magnitude less.

Subject: Problem with Direct CD 3.05
Date: 11/23/02

Mike Richter (Friggin' Scum) screeched:

Difficulty in formatting an erasable is most often due to the medium,
not to the software or drive hardware. During a full format, each sector
is written and read back; if the error rate is excessive, the sector is
retried, then retired ...

Note that errors increase with erase cycles; the practical limit is far
less than the theoretical 1000 cycles.

Mikey Richter (Lying Scum) spewed:

It could be an erasable wearing out. Don't believe the
manufacturer's claims about number of cycles; users typically
find less than a hundred erase cycles before losses show and

packet writing uses more erase cycles in the directory area
(where your problem originates) than many believe.

Subject: What causes a failed burn on RW media
to result in a coaster? Any fixes?

Mikey Richter (Slimy Scum) screeched:

Erasable media have proved both failure-prone and short-lived. I
recommend using them only for test. It has never been clear how one
should interpret the quoted life of 1000 erase cycles, particularly

since UDF means erasing of specific bytes and sectors, not full discs.


What kind of a cockamamie are you now spewing, Mikey? The last time I
checked UDF means Universal Disk Format.

BTW, whatever happened to the directory and critical areas?

The nominal 1000 cycles has appeared to be a fiction to all
of us who used fixed-length packets. Unfortunately, the first
area to go (for understandable reasons) is that of the directory.

packet writing uses more erase cycles in the directory area
...than many believe.

The nominal life of an erasable is 1000 erase cycles, but that
has not been realized in practice for many reasons. One is that
critical areas of the disc are "erased" every time you modify one
and eject it.

Also, have you heard of 'SPARING' technology, Mikey?

Also, what do you say to this, Mikey?

The answer is: replace the disc.


only 2% or less seems to be unreadable :\


It takes less than that if the faults are in the directory, which is the
most "scrubbed" region on an erasable whether quick- or full-formatted.

An utterly stupid design, IMHO.


Unfortunately, it's unavoidable. The problem is that the information
cannot be written back every time or the directory area would be worn
out very quickly. Each change to the directory would necessitate
rewriting some material - even if only a pointer to where the changes
were located. Scrubbing that region would exceed the (nominal) 1000
rewrites very quickly.
