There's got to be more to reading errors than just that.  A speck on the
lens or disc should be out of focus, and seen through.  Likewise for
most light radial scratches on a disc, though tangential ones will
always be a problem.  And a speck should get blown off by the wind from
the spinning disc, anyway.

If you find reading discs to be touchy, I'd be more inclined to suspect
marginal quality discs and drives, or old/wearing-out drives.

(This computer runs FC7, my others run FC4, FC5 & FC6, in case that's
 important to the thread.)

Don't send private replies to my address, the mailbox is ignored.
I read messages from the public lists.
