Sorry to sound like a noob, but I’ve been able to burn all XGDA’s (not 100% though) using my ol’ LG ext. burner with no problems at all. My question is, do I need to buy a Liteon drive to be able to use C4eva’s soon to be released burning software? I don’t understand why it MUST be a Liteon drive to burn 100%. Can someone help explain this to me? thx in advance!

Because its not a software he is releasing to burn them. It is firmware to go on the drives. So it has to be at least a drive with the mediatek chip in it. The ones they know work are the liteon they testing with. I think as time goes on with mtk being a major mfg of chipsets for drives, there will likely be several others found to work as well.

@twisted247: it’s sad that I don’t understand? So, I supposed you ALWAYS been a prodigy and understood everything about the modding scene? Stop trolling on other peoples posts and get a life! Or, please give me your address so I can come by and kick your fucking mouth in. The internet has given lowly, loner, losers like you courage to talk mess! So, STFU and hide behind your computer screen or be useful!

What I understand is that you need a new burner ONLY for games like Forza 4, which has moved the CIV checks to sections of the disks that can’t be burned with normal burners. So you can play safely with no “disc is corrupted” errors and also reduces the chance to get flagged/banned.
Right now only Forza 4 has this issue, but I think in the future all game developers will move in that direction and all new games will come with new CIV checks that will force you to buy a new burner capable of burning an exact copy (100%) of the disk.

@goyik
The keyword in there is “right now.” Sure that’s the only game so far (probably because M$ owns the studio and IP) but I’d bet just about anything that plenty of the newer games coming out from the major studios will have some variant of CIV checks. Honestly why wouldn’t they? If you check the original pressings of some of the games that just came out you’ll see most were done with the final press in May-June before any of these checks were being implemented. It’s just a natural progression to move to the better anti-piracy checks. Same thing that happened with SSv1 checks when SSv2 started rolling out. Small numbers at first but before we knew it they all had SSv2.

You need the new burner and firmware to burn a 100% backup of the game to the disk, all xgd3 games are 8.7 gig and a regular dvd dl is 8.5 gig, so at the moment around 200 meg is being cut off and this in some cases could be important info.

I bought the 124, hope they do pioneer though as never a bad burn, thats prob why you need verbs with the liteons as there a bit crap, pioneer got mtk chipsets ;-)
