Hi,

We all want to have the correct media, so testing is the only way to get this work..
Post all your media results here.. I will update the thread with a compatability list.

Regards,

Nice, i would say we will do it this way:

MEDIA USED: Brand here
BURNED WITH: Brand here
MEDIA WORKS AS MOVIE: yes/no

It would be nice to know when the MEDIA works for DVD Movies and Games!!! (Maybee to find a bug in the patched xtreme firmware!)

PS: Mine cheapest Ritek works for the movies, will try it now for games!

Clonecd latest version
Verbatim DL DVD+R 2.4x certified

With MOVIE i meant that you burned a DVD-Movie or Data on that type of Media wich works on your hitachi drive.

Conclusion: When the Movie works on your hitachi drive then a game burned on that media should work to. Now we want to find out that this conclusion is true.

Ritec DVD+R 4,7GB works on my hitachi for movies. Heard that Ritec DVD+R DL wont work.

I also got some Problem with a ORIGINAL DVD Movie Terminator 2 Extended Edition Disc 1. The Drive sometime wont recognize the Disc. Next day i tried it worked.

The Hitachi seems to be a bitch! unsure.gif

Mhh, why does Movies bruned on the cheapest Media works on the Hitachi, but games burned on the same Media wont...

Is there a timing problem in the xtreme firmware??

bought one myslef m8 so dont despair smile.gif

actually since neither verbatims and traxdata are working am a bit shaky if not to put the firmware or not since might be a waste of time and if they do something for live will loose it for nothing

Did someone in here used the KIOSK DISC on the hitachi??

When yes, did you used the same media to backup your games?

Mhh, why should this media now dont work!?!?!?!

Did we find a big bug in the xtreme firmware???

Can someone proof the KIOSK DISC THEORY?

Yes, u cant compare dvd5 media to dual layer media, remember that.

If youve burned the kiosk disc on a dual layer verbatim disc, and it works, then try to burn a backup on the same brand of dual layer disc, only then can u realy get an acurate comparison.

My king kong dvd, wich is burned on a dl verbatim worked fine, a backup burned on the exact same disc brand, didnt work. So im thinking maybe there is a bug in the firmware hack :/
