I’ve been backing up my 360 games pretty steadily for a while now.
I’ve steadily used Verbatims. So, one day, I ran out and needed a couple in a pinch. So, I went to Circuit City and picked up these Nexxtech ones (5pk for $6 on sale). I figured that they would be worth a try at least for the heck of it. So, I backed up a couple games with them and to my surprise, they worked fine! I decided to use the rest of the ones I had on hand (I bought two 5-packs) while I ordered some new Verbs from Newegg.
Well, I got the Verbs in from Newegg and they wouldn’t work anymore!! I could no longer burn 360 ISO’s on them! I thought that maybe they were a bad batch. So, I burned a big WMV-HD video rip of a Blu-Ray on one. It burned no problem.
I’m stumped! I tried updating the firmware on the drive, tried using the Buffalo firmware, and nothing worked. The Nexxtech DVD+R DL’s work fine. I don’t get it! Did the Nexxtech discs alter my burner somehow??
The only other change I made recently is that I installed Nero 8. I thought that may be the problem, so I uninstalled it and reinstalled Nero 7. Still no luck.
Like I said, I don’t get it.
So, I went to Circuit City and picked up 4 more 5-packs of the Nexxtech discs.
Now, I’m kinda stuck with 17 somewhat useless Verbs I can only burn data onto and not 360 ISO’s.
