Which dvd media do Thompson drives prefer? dvd+r or dvd-r?
Jul 9 2003, 06:16 PM
I have a Thomson and it reads Verbatim DVD+R wonderfully. I highly recommend them!!
Oh, and my Sony DVD+RW works great too.
For Thomson, don't use cheap brands....Memorex

Is Thompson the only drive that supports the DVD+R/RW media then the newer drives?

i have a Thompson drive, and it's been picky about the DVD+R. Not sure why. I've used DVD+R on all of my backups, and have no problems execpt for 1 or 2 games. They work in other Xbox's. So far mine had read DVD+R, DVD+RW, and DVD-R. Those are the only i've tried.

mine reads verbatim 4x +r disks, and also ritek 1x -r disks just fine

my princo? something like that DVD-R 1x work fine.

I haven't noticed any problems with any of the + media I have tried, including Fuji, Philips and Nashua +R and Nashua +RW.

in order to do what all of you are speaking about you have to completley rip out the old xbox hd, and put in a new one right?

Oh, in order for backups to work you do have to flash your bios... is that what you mean?
