I need mega help, I just bought a Ricoh MP5125A and updated the firmware to 1.72 straight away. Then I got a Bulkpaq 2.4x (Compatible with my DVD Writer) and tried to burn driv3r on xbox. It wrote the disc but my xbox wouldnt read it, so I tried burning a movie. Same again I burned it but it didnt read on my dvd player then I tried both of the discs on my computer to see if it could even read the cd and it couldnt. So please someone help me!!! Ill even give you webspace.
Hi. i have the ricoh mp5125a on firmware 1.72 and it has been fine. i know that the bulkpaq dvd+r 4 speed are not very good in the xbox as i have tried them and they dnt seem to be very good in my xbox. what version of xbox do you have? i have 1.0 and mine is fine with dvd-r which is why i brought the nec2500a. i had problems with firmware 1.68 on the ricoh drive. i found that version 1.51 is one of the best to use as it got rid of serveral problems i had with +rw discs. download a different version of firmware to use or try another brand of media. sorry cnt be of much more help.
Thanks piracy I appreciate that ive got one disc now the only one left… but its verbatim which is a official dvdr for the drive, ill try that if it doesnt work I will buy the nec2500a.
i also tried verbatim dvd+r and they wasnt so good either but was slightly better. yea you can pick up a nec2500a really cheap now and 100 dvd+r for Â£21 here in the uk. once i got the nec2500a all my troubles had gone and i could run games off dvds instead of the hard drive. if you need any more help just pm me or reply to this thread.
oh just to let you know +rw are much better to use for games when you use the ricoh mp5125a.
