Hi, I know most people's thing here isnt 360 but I felt asking it here. I borrowed a Sony DRU-830A DVD-Writer from a friend and burnt some games at 2x with it but the problem is discs are kinda low burn quality, for example, after finishing Chapter 3 of Gears of War, it says that disc is unreadable, take it out and clean it, not to mention that it doesnt even have one scratch. Or in Splinter Cell : DA it takes too much at its loading screens (loading the menus) and even music stops at one point and its trying so hard with making a lot of noise to read the disc (I think that noise is normal with BenQ but I'm a little afraid when playing Splinter Cell, cuz of that noise and being taking so long). Also Condemned1 made me stop at chapter 6 but I managed to skip that chapter and rest of the game was fine and I finished it. SO, my question is that do you think by upgrading its firmware my problem will be solved? I had to ask it before since dual layer discs are so expensive here. BTW, the discs I used is a DVD+R T-Gate and my drive is BenQ. EDIT: I went to a drive site and found this under firmware update: "Reliability improvements with 8cm DVD-R DL." Does that mean it will fix the problem? ? but I'm burning on DVD+R discs, could this fix that too? BTW, what does "reliability improvement" mean? a fix? huh? aha! Companion cube?
