Sorry to bring an 'old thread back to life', but unfortunately I'm still having problems
Well after a lot of thought and deliberation thanks to a link from cdreaks to a review of the three latest DVD drives i finally opted for the LG 16X Writer as this is supposed to take some of the strain off the processor when burning!
So i went to my local computer store and spent Â£39 on the LG GSA-4163BA 16x16 DVDÂ±RW Dual Layer ReWriter (Beige) - OEM (CD-027-LG). I was quite pleased with this drive as it seemed to burning DVD's fine, however
when testing Xbox games they work only as far as a loading screen and NEVER actually played any.
A few days ago i got around to testing a game and bloody thing loaded in so far and said 'Your disc may be dirty or damaged'.
I have also tried another copy on a friends Xbox and they said they actually got theirs to work but was playing 'slower than a man with a broken foot'!!
AGAIN i am using RiDisc with Ritek dye so should have no problem rading these in the Xbox. I just put this down to perhaps a batch of 'dogy disks'.
However, also this morning when i have come to burn a standard DVD using Nero (6.0.13) EVERY single DVD that i have tried (3 RiDisc and 2 Datawrite's) it burns 1% of the disc and crashes saying 'illegal disc'.
Now i'm REALLY getting to the end of my teather with my Computer!!
I have checked and double checked the connections in my computer, switched off and rebooted several times!
Has anyone got any idea what could be wrong with my PC?
ThanX in Advance
