Hello,

I updated my dashboard and now I get a “FAILED TO AUTHORIZE DISK” message when I try to play games. I’m using a Samsung with 2.01 . What gives? is there something new going on? I have not burned my games using the specified burner or disks. I’m using kodak dl dvd’s and just burning till i run out of space on the disk. This was working for me up until I updated the dashboard. I’m also using a samsung drive in an xbox that originally had a hitachi drive. I didn’t get any drive errors though. Any thoughts on my issue would be great.

all i can suggest is to get an ihas burner and burn your games to 100% using ixtreme burner max firmware. you might also need a hitachi drive since that was the original drive. i would get the ihas first, because if you get a hitachi drive, you will definitely need to have full burns anyway. truncated xgd3 discs are not compatible with hitachi LT 2.0.

also if you can’t burn your kodak discs at 2.4x by default, use media code speed edit to allow that speed for your specific media id (disc type). looks like they are the RICOHJPN D01-067, same as the Optical Quantum discs i’ve used, so they should be acceptable. keep in mind they are not 100%. i have had a few discs that failed to install fully to the xbox (usually fails around 50%) and some games refuse to boot at all. almost always they are ok, but not every single disc. if you don’t want to buy verbatim, you have to expect that.

Had this problem when the new dash came out tried 2 different Samsung drives flashed with 2.01 both kept giving me this error, i use the truncated method and install games on my hard drive, i figured out if i delete them from my hard drive and play from the disc they work perfect with no errors.

I have this problem too. After updating dashboard I can’t run XGD3 games from hdd. Running games from the disc work perfect. I used to play games at night when my wife is sleeping. So it’s annopying for me when I can’t run game from hdd because of noise. I assume there will be no firmware update for samsung drive. Is there any way to fix this problem ?

thanks for the replies guys, I guess I’ll delete my installs and just play from the disk for now. The install causes an error most likely because our dvd drive is tricking the dashboard into thinking everything is fine, but when you install a game there is probably something that is missing that allows the dashboard to detect an issue.
