Am i using the wrong disk type

Hi, my first post/ thread :slight_smile:

I notice that the I/O error upon burning dvds/ps2 games is a fairly common problem and has already been answered in some cases but i’m trying to burn resident evil 4 using IMGburn and i get the error upon startup. I also notice that people are using different disks than i am, i’m using sony dvd-r. So i just wonder if maybe my problem is the wrong disk type.

A yes or no answer would be helpful

An explanation and some tips would be…um…helpfuller :stuck_out_tongue:

Thank you.

It helps if you post a copy of the log so we can actually see the error.

Okay. This is my log:

Your drive doesn’t support that MID.

Try updating your firmware to 103C.

If that still doesn’t work you’ll need to buy some other discs that it does support.
