Do they load retail games?

Older Hitachi drives can be very picky with loading backups.

What type of media are you using?

How are you creating the backup images?

I've had same problems with Hitachi drives, i've heard if you calibrate the pot or adjust the laser and you can turn it up/down to read your backups. I haven't tried this myself but i read about it a while ago, i think all you need is a multimeter and a screw driver (I could be wrong, like I said I haven't tried this myself). At work now but I will be home soon and i have a link to article about adjusting this I can get when I get home. PM or reply if ya can't find it yourself.
