"disc Unplayable: Clean Disc With Soft Cloth"
Posted 06 February 2008 - 05:18 PM
Just flashed my BenQ drive to iXtreme1.41 yesterday. A lot of my older backups, ones I did a while ago, like Rainbow Six Vegas, MOH Airborne etcetra are giving "Disc Unplayable - Clean disc with soft cloth". These backups worked fine on my older XBOX 360 (MS25; iXtreme 1.4). I just got a brand new Elite with a BenQ drive.
The newer backups are not giving any problems - neither are originals - only the older backups are giving this problem.
Any clue why?

I think its a media issue... what brand did you use for the older backups..?
Same brand, same burner, same speed - everything exactly the same. There has been absolutely no change whatsoever in anything except the fact that now I'm running a BenQ with iXtreme1.41 - Earlier I was running a Toshiba-Samsung MS25 with iXtreme1.4
I use Verbatim Media, Pioneer DVR-111D Burner, and always burn at 2.4x
The only one thing that's coming to my mind - and I seriously hope this is not it - is that the older backups have a Disc Label on them. I've been using Disc Label's forever - and I've heard about this - that Disc Label's do hurt the media. I just never experienced it before. But I'm not sure if that's it. I do have a backup which isn't that long, 'DiRT', which does have a Disc Label, and it did work fine.

In my opinion, and from experience, Xbox 360's can be very funny with media especially after flash updating your drive. Also, I myself have a Pioneer 111D and have had nothing but trouble when burning (Kept failing at 50% - even on verbatim)
The best combo I have found is my old faithful Pioneer 109D, verbatim DLs, and the occasional lense clean with a conton bud and some aftershave. The reason i clean so often is because I smoke.

I have a feeling it's a speed issue too.
I did two of my backups, didn't put a disc label this time - both are working right now. If this problem persists, I might try a different speed. The only thing that concerns me is - if this truly were a Speed issue - why is it that Some backups are working and some are Not. They are all same media, burner, burn-speed.

I stopped using labels years ago coz i kept sticking them on badly even with a stomper, they wouldn't play properly in my DVD player at the time... I now use and epson R365 and printable verbs 43572, backups look very cool....
By any chance, did your drive pack it in

That is cool!
I really don't know, to be quite honest - cause it could be any of the causes you guys are suggesting. Labels, Speed ... I really don't know. The only thing I do know is, all my newer backups - Label or No Label - seem to be working fine - but all the older backups (All of them unfortunately do have a label, I don't have one without a label to test) ate giving the 'Disc Unplayable' at some point or another in the game.
Not quite sure what you mean? 'Pack it in' ?!?

Hang on, Have you checked them with XBC, schrom or mulleter to see if they are properly stealthed???? I was sure you said you had, but checking back it doesn't say it anywhere...
Absolutely 100% stealthed according to XDVDMulleter. Some of my backups failed the "SplitVid" test but passed all the others in XBC. I did patch the "SplitVid" and reburnt the two. However, I honestly don't think the SplitVid would be causing this problem.
