Hi folks. This is my first post, but I have searched for an answer to my question with no results.
I am burning some old games for my Sega CD and having only limited success. For those that do not know, the Sega CD was an early '90s add-on for the Sega Genesis. As I said, I am trying to burn some games to CD-R media from .bin/.cue backups, but the games - which use a lot of Full Motion Video - will occasionally lock-up or skip during the video segments. The rest of the time they play perfectly.
I do not suspect the quality of the back-up files, nor do I think there is a problem with my CD drives. I have tried both an Optiarc/generic Samsung and a Sony burner, and I have tried three different burning programs: Nero, IMGBurn, and CDRWin (I think).
Using the Samsung burner at 16x speed with IMGBurn, I have managed to get the best copies of the games.
I have tried three brands of CD, all of them identified as CMC Magnetics.
Should I seek out a different (better?) make of CD-R? Does anyone have advice on how to make the best copies that are likely to work in a very old CD drive? Is there a particular CD-R make that works well for older CD drives with little or no error correction abilities?
