Dvd-r/rw Vs. Dvd+r/rw
Posted 31 December 2002 - 10:18 AM
Most of the time I have spent online has been researching what the xbox will read and wont read and I have been looking for a difference between +RW and -RW but I can't find anything. I know the basics about the differences in these formats BUT, what is the actual difference when it comes to what that little laser in the xbox can read and can't read? None? A little? Does it depend on the media brand and that's it? There has to be a better science for this.
The only thing I can find about media types in all these forums is what brand to choose for DVD-R/RW. I have been in many forums and have found several people saying that they heard of people being able to make a DVD+RW backup....but how is it done?
So far, I have followed all the tutorials, pulled a perfect, verified image from my xbox D drive, created an Iso with gdfimage and burned it to a DVD+RW with RecordNow following every single tip provided in the materials I have read but, the disc can't be read in my xbox. Is DVD-RW the safest way to go or do I have to just keep trying different media brands? I have only tried Imation DVD+RW media for now...just not looking forward to trying every brand out there. are there ANY DVD+RW fans out there that can give me some helpful hints on what THEY have found? What brands are good? Is the laser more picky about the DVD+RW format? Please help! I can't even exchange my DVD burner for the dual suited Sony model either since I have thrown away the packaging I received it in

or else, you could spend that time that you were reserving for trying every type of media, and spend it on finding the box your writer came in, then go get a sony or pioneer.
sorry my news/input couldn't be more positive.

So I went shopping for some new media and thought....what better media than Philips DVD+RW discs, when I tried it with this media, my philips drive will read the disc
I only had to try it once and it worked, I'm going to try burning another iso to see if it works again but all signs look good. I have a TDK DVD+RW burner, and my game was burned at 2.4 times.
