The stores close to me only sell Memorex too... go to Newegg.com
You can get a 20 pack of Verbatim for $39.99.
Heres the thing, the Disks were burned perfectly fine. It reads as Xbox360 Disk on my pc... if i double click on it on my PC, it opens up in WMP telling me to put it in a 360 console to play... so it really has nothing to do with my burner's FW.
It has to do with how fussy the DVD-Rom drive in the 360 is.
I don't think jesterrace is saying that media other than Verbatim will not work... he was just responding to the post that said "with the 111-D drive, any form of media works." I wish it were true cause I could just go for pure price, but thats simply not the case, as I unfortunately found out.
I'd be interested to see if anyone has had any issues with Verbatim on the 111-D. So far from what I've read, its worked all the time.
There are those who unfortunately cannot get Verbatim to work. There is no such thing as 100% compatible media no matter what the application. However, they are still by far the most versatile D/L media on the market. You are correct that I am not stating that other media will not work, I was merely pointing out that the guy who posted that anything works on the Pioneer 111D is making a HUGE ASSumption. Plenty of evidence here that supports that other media is not as compatible as the Verbatim and as I have been trying to point out, there are precious few here who are thinking about the long term consequences of using such media (ie error rate scans, ect). That being said, if you do live in North America there are plenty of excellent sales on Verbatim media that often bring them down to the point where there either isn't much difference in price between them and the cheap quality stuff or in some cases that they are even cheaper (usually some form of rebate involved though). I got a 20 pack from newegg about 3 weeks ago that was $31 shipped (roughly $1.55 a disc) and there was a $10 MIR on top of that, works out to $1.05 a disc after rebate. I can't even get POS D/L media for that cheap. For those who live overseas the Verbatim cause isn't completely hopeless. Most in Europe are able to order from http://www.svp.co.uk
. 10 packs of Verbatim for 14 pounds (including VAT). I know there are cheaper options for D/L media but it's still not that bad when you factor in everything that I have mentioned.This post has been edited by jesterrace777: Sep 16 2006, 08:09 PM
