    i purchased this from meritline:

    http://www.meritline.com/taiyo-yuden-8x-dv...-printable.html

    to burn backups for my wii...
    but as a test, i tried burning 2 xbox isos at 4x speed.... and when i boot it up in my xbox a white screen pops up saying disk read error.

    then i burned a movie and it worked...



    but are these bad dvds that cant burn gaming isos? or could it be my xbox/the Iso file.





    i will seriously will be pissed off if its the dvds, because i bought them just for my wii backups...

    It may be you dvd's that is the problem.

    I had the same problem with cheap dvd's myself, then i went and bought TDK-dvd's for 2.5$ a piece (!) Ant they work without any problem.

    With the price the DVDs will probably be really cheap. You maybe better looking on GBATemp to see what brands people recommend.

    i have taiyo yudens, depending on the dye used depends on their quality, but taiyo yudens are known for being some of the best media, don't know about the value variety, but if they say value that must mean cheap

    Anyone know how well Staples brand DVDs work? I believe the prerecorded information said they were fuji-film or something like that. They did work in my Xbox, but I couldn't copy back some files.
    Edit: "Manufacturer ID: FUJIFILM03". I also have a couple "Spin-X" brand DVD-Rs left.

    i burned about 30 xbox 360 games with with verbatim dl +r disk, and 20 or so wii games with the verbatim dvd+r disc everyone of them worked.

    buy good media...they last a lot longer.

    here is a link you can buy from buy.com and use the $10 off google check out to make it 25.99 shipped for 100.

    What works for us and our burners might not work for you. I'd suggest you use nero's cd-dvd speed program, go to the disc quality tab and do a scan at somewhere around 4x. If you google a little you'll find out to interpert the results. In general you'll be suspect if you see a high number of PI Failures and/or a quality score less than at least 70 something.

    In general TY are usually excellent media, but maybe TY and your burner at the speed you're burning at just aren't getting along. If the disc has alot of errors it might work find in some devices but not all.
