Okay, Andrei objected the term "checkreading", and it is indeed not
appropriate, regardless of whether it is performed by the drive itself or by

I'm not an expert on optical recording technology, but I am a native English speaker. To me, the term "proofreading" implies checking someone's written words for grammar, sense, and spelling. It's really not something I would expect a computer to be able to do. If it's officially called "defect management", why not use that term -- especially since (at least in English) it actually describes what's really going on.

If it were my choice (which, of course, it's not) I would greatly prefer something closer to Andre's original suggestion:

"In order to get full nominal speed on BD-RE (without the slowdown caused by the drive's internal defect management) add
the option 'stream_recording=on'."

Thanks for listening,
