I have 10 games that I have backed up from copies that I own. They've all worked fine for quite some time. Now only 2 work. NFSU2 and Tetris work fine. Tetris is on a CD-R and NFSU2 is on the same type of DVD-R that all the other games are on. They just won't load at all. Once I got Burnout 3 to get to the "loading" progress bar, but then it froze. 100% of the time other than that one instance, it goes to load it, sticks at the loading screen (tried EvoX and Avalaunch), then returns to the dash.
I'm running a 1.1 with Xenium ICE OS 2.3.0. Metoo 1.4.1 BIOS. I tried different BIOSes and pretty much anything else I could think of including leaving the HDD unlocked and clearing all cache folders, but everything results in the same...well, results. Any ideas, please?
The only thing I can think of is that I installed a new HDD 80Gb recently, but I don't see what that would do. I tried a clean install with Slayers all over again and that didn't help, either. I could continue using my original copies, but I want to be sure my backups work as well.

Anyway, I did what you said and DVDInfoPro reports the media type as being "CMC MAG. AF1" Does that mean anything to you? They are Memorex DVD-R.
I thought maybe it was my new Metoo BIOS or possibly Slayer's version of EvoX...I'm really grasping at anything, so I reverted back to the M8 BIOS I used to have and the regular 3935 EvoX and I still have the same problem. I tried using a different hard drive...I really don't know what else to try. I can't even copy over most of the files via FTP, particularly the .xbe's. They start to transfer, but then the transfer rate goes down to 0 and it freezes. I've tried it many times with different backups with the same results. I can FTP retail copies fine. I even made a new backup of one and it transferred, burned, and ran fine. I would just redo all my originals, but I don't want to waste so many DVDs. I also tried DVD2Xbox, but it was unable to transfer the files or in most cases, even read the disc to start the program (assuming because it can't read the xbe).

Memorex uses multiple suppliers for their media. CMC is just one supplier. If you're buying the in the US, Best Buy has FujiFilm 25 packs of DVD-R and DVD+R on sale for now for $9.99. If you go to the store and look on the packages you will see that they are Made in Japan or Made in Taiwan. The Made in Japan spindles are supplied by Taiyo Yuden. It's worth a try at that price.

What program can I use to edit this particular BIOS so I can get my dash to boot from F:? And, maybe I should just be happy that at least they work now, but it's driving me crazy why they would suddenly only work with this BIOS, one I've never used before. I recently upgraded my Xenium OS to ver 2.3.0, but I can't remember if the backups worked before the upgrade so I don't know if that had an effect on BIOS compatibility with the particular OS I was using (i.e. maybe ver 2.3.0 has some issues with Metoo 1.4.1 or M8 or Xecuter 4979, etc...and for some reason, it likes X2 4983).
I'm still at work right now, so I'll do some more experimenting when I get home. I also may find out how to edit the X2 4983 BIOS by doing some searching, but if you know, leave a quick note. Thanks.
