No 8.5GB media recognition


I’m a newbie… I have crossflashed 451S@832S with VS0M from the codeguys page. It works fine doing the same things done before crossflashing, but when I try to burn a 360xbox iso on a 8.5GB DVD+R DL the drive does not recognize the dvd. Do you know why? (The disc is Ridisk 8.5 GB DVD+R DL).


Ridisc DVD+R DL is not really good anyway, many drives do not support it properly.
Try Verbatim DVD+R DL, it is the most compatible DVD+R DL media which can be bought for money.

Ok. I’ll try this out and will report results.


Hello again

Yes… that’s it. The media was corrupted. I mean the DVD ridisc. I got a Sony (could not find Verbatim) and it worked fine.

Thanks very much

The ridisc disc is not supported, I think.
