ok, so i ripped my copy of spy hunter using the ftp.
made an iso using gd****ge.exe
i burnt it to a princo gen 2 dvd-r at 1x. the game booted fine, but always hung whenever i tried to load the first level.
so i burnt it again, same problem. i burnt it to some cheap a$$ white label dvd-rw and the game works fine ??? so i tried again with princo and it doesn't work.
yes the first thing that jumps to your mind is media, but all my other xbox games are on the same discs from the same batch???
