i don't know if others have had this problem. the Matrix 2.4x media(Ricoh D00 001) I was using with my Hitachi 47D w/Xtreme 1.1 no longer works with the new 1.3 + Geremia patch. Verbatim backup's run lightning fast now but my Matrix backups no longer boot. Says Reading then after about 3 clicks i get an Open Tray message and now that the v1.3 has removed the boot tricks, i can't try them. any reason this might have happened? Interestingly, DVD-VIDEO burned on the same Matrix media still plays on the drive. Anyone else have media that worked before and now doesn't? especially Matrix media? seems like there maybe a tradeoff some media load faster and some don't work at all.
I'm using a Pioneer DVR-111D for the burning and the SS are patched correctly as the same iso burned onto a Verbatim disk works flawlessly.

I am in the same boat as you my friend. I used dynex, fujifilm, and verbatim and they all worked given the dynex and fujis used the eject hack. Now that its gone only my verbatims would boot from dash but the others stay at open tray.

anyone have a solution or explanation to the problem. will GaryOPA have to revise the firmware again to include the eject trick?

joemommz, just out of curiosity did u have a perfect flash with the GaryOPA autoflasher? (i.e no DeviceFailed errors when flashing the 9 different sectors). When flashing i got one error on the 2nd flash i think it was for the Security Sector, but got a 100% confirmation at the end. wonder if thats making any difference?

Yeah, at first I had errors but I kept flashing until I was clear of any. I also used the new flasher that Birdy uploaded (the one that fixed that violation error) but my old media still didnt work. Then I got my hands on a brand new laser and boom all of my media works superb now. The laser I originally had came from a launch day xbox and the new laser came from a brand new xbox.

can this laser be purchased?

THe laser I took out from a 47DJ was the one that accepted all the media I spoke about earlier. The laser that only liked Verbatim was the 47DH. This was from my experience so I can't confirm if all lasers from 47DJ drives will work the same. I read somewhere on these forums that you could get lasers for like 25 bucks but I dont know where.
