I have searched the forums pretty well, and though I have found tons of killer info regarding FW's & drives, I really haven't found the exact info I'm seeking....so please excuse if I'm being redundant here.
I have a Memorex DVD+/-DLRWL1 F16 drive. I have made quite a few (of the smaller games) backup discs for the Xbox in +R format and they all work fine in the Xbox. For the bigger games, I went to the +R DL. No luck....Xbox won't read it. After reading quite a bit here in the forums, after flashing the FW of the drive quite a few times to different FW's, and after using DVD Decrypter & DVD Info Pro & Nero CD Speed, etc, etc.....I have come to the conclusion that the +R DL media just won't burn to "DVD-ROM" format. I have changed the booktype in those programs and everything says "success", etc...but when I burn the disc and then check it, it says DVD+R DL for the booktype.
So I guess my question is, can I change the booktype for +R DL to DVD-ROM on that drive? Keep in mind that the +R's worked fine and are apparently burning to DVD-ROM format just fine....but the DL won't. I've read some on Nvidia drivers here too......but I'm not running those I don't believe & when I go to the IDE channel in device manager, it says Microsoft under drivers.
Any help is greatly appreciated!!!
