I have a panasonic 3d0 and i am trying to test out a backup, but it wont load up. The brand is MEMOREX, those discs only cost me 7.99, i mean is it too cheap?

What brands should i get, TDK?
Can you really play backup's on a 3do?

What kind of 3d0 do you have? the Goldstars are known to have problems with cheap media. Your best bet is dark dye based media, however, i haven't burned a in so long I couldn't tell you what the best dark media would be.

I use Ridata media for all my backups on every platform... and I put a bulk order in about once a year from http://meritline.com

I've never done 3D0 backups but I use these for Sega CD and Sega Saturn, PS1 and lots of other older/weaker laser consoles without problems.

I forgot to mention something that might help you a good deal. I have a goldstar 3d0, the most picky in terms of 3d0's. In the event you have backed up your own game and it is not a raw iso dump, you will need to tell your cd burning program to finalize the disk so that it will burn the full cd, not just 50mb of one. That should help you burn whatever iso, remember to burn them as slowly as you can bear. I have tried DAO and TAO and TAO seems to have better compatibility.

The SegaCd you can play backups with ease, the same on psone, using the xploder boot disc( which i have ), but the sega saturn, i have a model 1 disc, do you use the swap method or is your saturn modded?

I dont burn at the lowest speed, that doesnt work on my end. I burn at 16x speed, but i will start to " finalize " the games now.

Thanks biggrin.gif

I only use Ridata or Verbatim Cd's for my 3DO or any CD back-ups.I've had no problems with them so far.
