    Hello,

    I've bought about 100 dvd-r's to get started but I don't get them to work with the backup loader(s)
    I'm getting ret=-4100 which points on bad burns, or something like that.

    I am using TDK dvd-r's. I've tried burning different iso's, different computers (with different burners) and different programs (imgburn, clonedvd, nero) at different speeds. (wasted about 12 dvd-r's).

    So I think it's the discs fault. Can someone post dvd brands that can be confirmed working with the backup loader?

    Thanks in advance. [​IMG]
    (If your brand is TDK. Please post your burning program and burn speeds etc.)

    Any DVD's (not tried TDK but tried other crappy PCline ones), Imgburn at 8x with a pioneer 112D burner seems to work.

    If you get that error (-4100 in title identification) is because the data could not be read.
    Main reason is normally because disc is DVD+R without DVDROM booktype.

    you just have to set the booktype from your burner to dvd-rom, then it should work!
    just use google to find an Firmware for your Burner

    (sry for bad english)

    I´m using dvd-r's and the burn seems to go all fine etc. (with verifiing)
    Both of my burners are LG's btw but I can't seem to modify (or even see) the booktype. (Probably because it are OEM versions, they came with DELL :/)

    Verbatim -Rs have worked great for me. +Rs not so much... Sam's Club usually has 100 pack of -Rs for cheap so if you are near one you should go there.

    I tried using Memorex DVD-Rs (The only ones I have right now...) and it worked with Super Paper Mario (it didn't even crash or stall after the first cut-scene) and deBlob (although it's really choppy with the menus. Haven't got around to actually playing it yet). It did NOT work with Resident Evil 4 which I read is a really picky iso. I'm just going to get Verbatims because almost everyone says they work best.

    Also, the Memorex are 16x. I burned at 12x with SPM and deBlob. Tried all speeds (even tried DVD+R Lightscribe discs) with RE4 and no luck. Just sits at the black screen. I even used 3 unscramblers/backup-creators and 4 loaders...

    like I said above, if your burner is good (pioneer 111/112D) then the media you use dosnt matter.

    All my wii games were on an assortment of cheap-ass dvd-r, all burned at 4x or 8x with imgburn & I dont think I had one bad burn.

    If you get a good burner it will save you time & discs in the future. [​IMG]
