Flashed my 124b with ixtreme burner max no problem, now its probably my media I know *RICOHJPN-D01-67″ but my backup of forza installed ok burnt on my Pioneer S19LBK using the same media using the truncated method but I uninstalled it from my hdd with the intention to install from my new ixtreme burner max version that burnt without error and verified ok. I tried installing using this backup media and it wouldnt install, go back to the old Pioneer burnt one and it installs straight away,

Is it just the media? I will defo try some verbs when I get a chance but just wanted to ask in advance :)

what drive is in your xbox? i have had issues burning the RICOHJPN-D01-67 at 4x, but when i forced the drive to burn at 2.4x they all verified fine (i verified them after reverting to “full speed” which woud be 8x), but i never tried installing any of them. i will go ahead and give it a shot to make sure all my burns are able to be read by my xbox.

Ive got a Benq in my xbox, i saw your post about forcing 2.4x on the same media which Ive done that helped with the verification fails, now they just dont want to install… keep getting dirty disc half way through

if it’s happening around 50%, i would guess that means it’s at the edge of the disc in the first layer where it comes across a problem. sorry if that’s just restating the obvious… i’m trying to think of what could be going on in your case.

i noticed that my drive seemed to slow down or make a bit of noise when it got to the 50 and 100% marks. have you tried calibrating your laser to give it a bit more power? maybe that would help it read better. it involves reading the potentiometer inside the dvd drive with a meter and adjusting it with a screwdriver by a tiny bit.

it’s very easy if you have a multimeter, and know how to take stuff apart with a screwdriver ;) you just have to turn the knob to the right setting and touch the two probes to the correct spots on the drive and read the number. then turn the pot a little bit counterclockwise. i forget the specific number and settings but i can find it if you need. i have had many drives that seemed like they needed new lasers, but once i adjusted the power they had no reading problems since.

this is what multimeters are just in case you aren’t sure.

you can find them cheap at walmart or wherever.

my first two verified xgd3 discs installed no problem, and booted fine (installed and not installed), however my third disc failed install halfway, but i tried again and it succeeded. so that adds more to my theory of it being a combination of drive (laser quality) and disc (media quality). if your drive gives dirty disc error, it’s because it has trouble reading the disc, so a laser calibration might just do the trick.

Right are you talking about the laser in the xbox then?

yes if you (or whoever flashed your drive) never messed with the laser in your BenQ, then default setting is something like 6 (which means less power), and you can turn it to at least 3 (more power). if you go too far it will burn up your laser though. the default setting is usually good for reading xbox 360 original discs, but i had a drive that needed adjustment before it could read memorex discs.
