Bad Burns - Nero6 U - Princo 1x Dvd-r -?
Posted 08 January 2004 - 12:45 PM
I'm having a problem with burning games smaller than 1GB on princo 1x dvd's. The iso's burn fine, but nero always writes some kind of dvd compatibility info up to 1GB on isos that are smaller than 1GB. Or something to that effect.
Well the net effect is that my xbox recognizes these as game discs, but wont load them. Same iso's burned on Phillips dvd+r's load just fine and nero doesnt burn anything above what the actual size of the iso is.
I'm fairly new to dvd burning so sorry if this is a stupid question! But I've burned quite a few isos's on dvd+r's, and iso's over 1GB on dvd-r's and they work flawlessly. But Small iso's on dvd-r's with nero6 ultra are giving me problems.

For some reason... I just dont like burning multigame discs =P I have a few of them, I just prefer single discs, they're cheap enough and it makes it easy to xbcopy/dvd2xbox a single game onto the hd if I feel the need.
Thanks guys, I'll let you know how recordnow max works out, let me know if you have any other suggestions

Nero burned a few ISO's OK for me, but making a UDF or Video CD with files and it would crap on me half the time. Sometimes it would work fine while others it would stay at 1% yet keep acting as if it were burning. Then the only way i could get it to stop was hard reset my computer. I made about 5 coaster using this method.
Anyway I guess this is all completely unrelated so I'll shut up now.
I've had good luck with Blindwrite is what I'm ultimately saying here.

I have used the princo 1X discs to burn dvd movies though and they work fine. Its just a pain to wait for stuff to burn at 1X, I ordered the wrong discs on accident so I think they're going to be just for movies since I know they work for that. The princo 1X discs that I've burned DVD movies on read fine in the xbox also... So I dont know...
I just tried recordnow MAX also, same problem...
Anyone else had problems burning small games on any type of dvd media? seems to be under 600-700MB and I get some problems (nothing major really though, just have to boot clean from the dvd when I use dvd+r). I've done a few that are just over 700 and they work perfectly (Phillips DVD+R)
I may have to go ahead and make some multigame discs for the small stuff... Going to try that just to see if I have the same problem, I'm thinking I wont though, we'll see.

Also, get yourself at least 1 RW, saves wasting so many Rs...
