TrueRID Scan

This function is useful for tracking media through a production process and is only available when using TrueCopytm recorders. This function will request that a CD be inserted, and will then scan for RID codes on recorded media. If no RID is present then "No RID Found" will be display. If an RID is present it will be displayed on the LCD. The RID will contain a drive manufacturer code, and the drive's electronic serial number. Every drive has unique RID. A CD with an RID code can be traced to the exact drive that recorded it. To find the electronic serial number of TrueCopytm drives select the menu item Utilities|System Information|True RID Info.

TrueQA Scan

TrueQA Scan is only available when used with TrueCopytm recorders. TrueQA scan will scan recorded media checking for uncorrectable C1 and C2 errors. Uncorrectable C1 errors are present on all CD media, and are normal. However, uncorrectable C2 errors lead to bad data, or clicks & pops on audio CDs. When scanning a CD, if there is any count other than zero (0) for C2, consider this disc to be of unsatisfactory quality.

Note: Some CD Copy protection schemes rely on 'bad blocks', and so scanning a copy protected CD will often reveal uncorrectable C2 errors.
