Crap media!

[QUOTE=chef;2235731]Crap media![/QUOTE]
Hello,
I have the same writer and ‘crap media’ as above and get the same error message. Is it as simple as using different media?
Thanks for any help.

Welcome to the forum! :slight_smile:

I’m not chef, but…

I’ve used that same mediacode successfully (at 6x) with a Samsung drive, but as chef suggests it’s not the best and especially for Xbox backups I’d use Verbatim +R DL.

Why not try a small pack (or even a single Verbatim DL disc)?

Thank for replying.
What burning program do you use? Should I ‘flash’ the firmware (I don’t really know what I’m talking about there!) but I keep reading about it. I’ve got a Phillips 8801.
Cheers.

If you can find an updated firmware from Philips for that model, then flashing the firmware is certainly an option if the discs refuse to burn no matter what.

But having said that, because of the general quality of those discs, even if they burn successfully on that drive, there’s no guarantee that they’ll do well with your Xbox360 (I’m guessing you’re doing Xbox backups like the OP?)

I can’t quite remember what program I used to burn the discs (they were backups of a couple of TV series DVDs), but it may have been Nero or DVDFab…neither of which will work for Xbox backups if that’s what you’re doing, I don’t think (perhaps someone will correct me on that one, LOL). :slight_smile:

Seriously, I’d just grab some Verbatim. :wink:

Looks like my ‘bargain’ is not as good as I thought. Would they be of use for movies or are they really that bad?:rolleyes:

I’d put them aside for now, and get some better discs. You never know, sometime down the road you might get a drive that’s a bit more tolerant of media that’s not the best quality, which will burn them OK, as my Samsung does. :wink:

Verbatim discs it is then!

Thanks for the advice.

:bow:

You’re welcome - good luck! :slight_smile:

Me again!
Just looking at PC World and Maplins. PC World have Verbatim 43666 DVD+R Double Layer 8.5GB 8X Matt Silver 10PK Spindle @ £24.99 while Maplins have Verbatim DVD+R Double Layer with Pearl Finish 25 Pack @ £19.99. I don’t know if there is a difference in quality. Any recomendations?

No idea if there’s a difference in quality, depends where they’re made (the Made in Singapore ones are the absolute best, but online it’s impossible to tell).

Mind you, I did order a 5-pack of Verbatim DVD-R DL the other day from APRmedia.co.uk and they were made in Singapore :smiley:

Sounds like the Maplins one would be best value for money (I think…my maths isn’t that good LOL). :slight_smile:

Maplins look the best value and Verbatim as a whole seem to be recommended I’ll give them a go.
Cheers.

Glad I found this forum.

:clap:

Nice one, hopefully they’ll do the job :slight_smile:

Thanks Arachne. :flower:

BRILLIANT!!!
Thank you Arachne (and chef) for the advice about using Verbatim. Worked first time, no problem at all.

Woohoo! :bigsmile: :clap:

You’re very welcome BTW :slight_smile:
