I'm not a gamer so I have no clue how vital it is that the burned DVD is book typed to a DVD-ROM.

 

I 17:20:59 Book Type Setting: N/A

I 17:46:33 Source Media Type: DVD+R DL (Book Type: DVD+R DL) (Disc ID: RITEK-S04-66) (Speeds: 4x, 6x, 8x)

I guess other members can fill in.

Could it be that i burnt the game at 2.4x speed and not 4x 6x or 8x? i thought the slower u burnt it the better but i didnt see that you need to write at a certian speed for certain dvdr's.

2.4x burning speed is impossible to get. The lowest you can get is 4x.

Slower is not always the best. It depends on the combination of media and burner.

why is there a 2.4x setting on image burn? is it not actually writing on 2.4x when that is selected or something?

I see several possible problems.

 

1. You're not setting the Book Type to DVD-ROM

 

2. The only DL disc you should use is Verbatim (the ones made in Singapore).

 

3. The discs you are using don't show a 2.4x write speed. You are actually burning at 4x.

 

While I don't burn any game discs (only movies) I believe that what I've mentioned applies to what you are doing as well as to what I'm doing.

Some discs allow you to burn at 2.4x.

 

There is a difference of opinion as to whether slower is better but I can tell you from personal experience that I have burned quite a few DL discs (all Verbatim) at 2.4x, and I have never had a bad burn. I also have never had a bad burn on my 52x CD's (also Verbatim) that I have burned at 4x. Add to that the large number of 8x Max DVD5 discs, burned at 4x and the 16x Max discs, burned at 6x (yep, all Verbatim) with only 2 or 3 bad burns (all on the 8x Max discs). You can see, from my experiences, that burning slowly works exceedingly well.

Successfully burning 1 game only means you've gotten lucky. Look at it this way, you've unsuccessfully burned more than 1 game. That should tell you something. You have probably made more coasters in your few burns than I have made in thousands of burns.

 

You don't have to take my word if you don't want to but just search around this forum, as well as other forums, and you'll find other knowledgeable people who say the same thing.

 

Your drive appears to be a Lite-on OEM drive. You could see if there is an update to the firmware for it. If you find an update use it to flash your drive. This won't change the fact that you should use Verbatim discs but you should always try to keep the firmware updated.

If there's a newer version, yes. If not, no!

 

Same as anything really.

when i flashed i used ver 1.4 now there is a version 1.6 . that makes sence cause the games im trying to burn are brand new games. u think maybe i should update my dvd burner firmware also?
