First off I could not find a specific section to put this post in so I thought this section would be best with the gamecube being so fussy with media.
I have tried a few trial burns with no luck at all
my gamecube is a DOL-001
I am using sd media launcher with the following files loaded on the card
GCoS 1.5 (PSO).dol
I do have a Viper Extreme coming which should be here tomorrow (fingers crossed), I also have not messed with the drives POT and have not tested its value yet and I do realize that I will be able to possibly solve my problem once the values are checked and adjusted as necessary.
Now to my burning hardware.
I am trying this on three computers and all have XP, the burners are a Lite-On LH-20A1p, a old Aopen YTS1, and finally a Pioneer DVR-116D.
My Media I have tried are Verbatim dvd-r full size MCC 03RG20 , Magnavox dvd-r full size CMC MAG AM3, Maxell Mini dvd-r RITEKG04, and finally Memorex mini dvd-r RITEKG04 .
I have read and read forum upon forum on what media to use and have had no luck with the most popular RITEKG04, and others. Everything goes fine on the sd media launcher side but when I go to boot the backup it just says cannot read media. I have tried 4 different games on each disc listed above, burned at 4x with nero and then tried another with imgburn as well. DOA is selected and finalize disc is checked as well.
Do you see any problems with anything I have wrote above?? besides the POT . I will be checking that just as soon as my DVM gets here (had to order one… not a single radioshack near me).
And Semp if you read this any light you can shed on this I would greatly appreciate, I read your post about the media and found it very informational.
I do have one question I really couldnt find a answer to. Is there a difference in gamecube models… I dont mean by motherboard revisions but as in ease of playing backups on
Many thanx guys and I will post my POT values when i get them and we can go from there… I am keeping all the discs I have burnt so far so I can try them if the POT needs adjusted
