What Dvd-R Disks Are Best?

Recommended Posts

Pretty well any DVD-R disk burnt at the slowest speed you can.

Years ago i had good success using DVD RW disks as well.

I used to have 1 of each type (DVD+R,DVD-R DVD-RW +/-) as some readers would not read some types.

ImgBurn for burning, slowest speed possible. Normally that's anywhere from 2x-4x depending on the disc and burner. I've generally noticed that ironically enough, Sony discs work the best across my Xbox consoles! True Sony discs, not the rebranded CMC Magnetics discs which are labelled as Sony.

The issue with that is you really can't walk into a store any buy them anymore. DVD-R selection in stores is limited enough as is due to optical burning media not selling nearly as much as it used to, and most branded media is just low quality rebranded stuff. I've personally lucked out occasionally finding spindles of deadstock, or barely used stock, of DVD-R discs at thrift shops.

      I was trying to transfer games through FTP using FileZilla in Linux Mint 19.3 to my Soft Modded Xbox which has a 1TB WD SATA HDD (model: WD10JPVX). I configured the Xbox Network settings to a maximmum of 5 users and FileZilla to 4. Every time I tried to tranffer a file, the user counter on the Xbox went up to 5 and FileZilla started showing errors. 
      So I booted Windows 10 with FileZilla. Still, had the same problem. Anyway, I deleted a Game Folder (4gb) from the "G" partition. Suddenly the Message Log window started showing a list of errors. When it finish, I went to the "Games" section on the Xbox and there where no games and the "G" partition which is about 800GB (I believe), had only 4GB free. So I though the the partition was corrupted. I decided to go to the format menu on UnleashX and format the "G" partition.
      After formating, the "G" partition sowed its true size. So I used "WinSCP" instead of FileZilla to transfer the files. Everyhting was good. It did transfer a lot of games, till I got an error: "Copying files to remote side failed. /G/Games/filename* Directory not found. At this point I had 560 GB free in the "G" partition.
      Someone suggested to do a clean install and wipe the disk. So I followed a youtube tutorial by Mr. Mario. Put the stock HDD back, Hot Swap the 1TB HDD as slave, started Chimp 261812 and it said that the slave hdd (1TB softmodded) was lock. So I tried to unlock the HDD with all the options given by Chimp and it remain lock. The options were: 
      From Motherboard
      From /tmp/eeprom.bin
      From Master password: XBOXSCENE
      From Master Password: TEAMASSEMBLY
      From /tmp/hddkey.txt
      So I retrieve the Stock HDD and put the 1TB Back in and... now the xbox wont boot. It says: Service required. Call Customer Service.
      I don't know if the HDD is faulty... I tried to run a test by putting the HDD into my laptop but it ask for a HDD Master Password and tried XBOXSCENE and TEAMASSEMBLY but they were invalid.
      I don't know what elese to do. Don't know how to unlock it or if its Faulty at this point. Should I buy a 2TB at this point? I don't know which 2TB model would work...

      I am reposting this topic again because i think the topic was pulled down.  I asked a question?, To all the owners, modder's, collector's whatever, whoever.  The God knowledge CPU upgraders...ETC
      Why is the Power supply upgrade neglected?  Come on guys make your system better than ever,   the ultimate original xbox
      Power Is the single most vital none motherboard component in you hybrid pc game console that can be improved really easy if you wanted to.  Give your system a larger deeper well of wattage to draw water from, so your system will run more efficiently then ever before because not a single watt asked for is not given to it immediately with ease of operation. 
      Have your fan's run faster and at full speed effortlessly,  Open the possibility for other hardware mods or definitely other cooling mods.  Power is important,
      not to big ...'
      not to small
      but just the right oversized power supply,   
        Bigger than the manufacturer's  But not too big.  Any flex atx will do with modification.  Or heavy modification depending on what your skill set is and what equipment you have to work with.  Message me with questions and i will give you my email.. Console power supplies suck.    Power was limited by the space in witch the power supply had to go into at the time of current technology of consoles.  Consoles are computer's dummed down.  Anyway point being always and i mean always upgrade the consoles power supply first then the rest of the crap.
        Cpu upgrade, ram upgrade, mod chip upgrade,  lights upgrade, cooling upgrade.  Blah Blah Blah, 
      What do all of these mods have in common?
      More Power consumption of the system.  They are all almost worthless without the larger wattage well to draw from...  Upgrade your power supplies to these amazing modded consoles. 
      Compliment your ram upgrade, cpu, upgrade, mod chip upgrade, lights upgrade, etc with a better atx power supply.  Any flex atx will do see my photos on mine. Also i am selling on ebay 4 fat model ps2's custom painted with a double size power supply riged in it.  It runs better than ever.  Despite maximum wattage use.  That is based on an inadequate power supply that is small enough to fit in a compact space.  Now uh days we have 1U server power supplies that deliver up to 1000 watts, Flex atx, standard 1u flex atx, tfx, sfx...ETC U name it... it exist now... Compact power punching power supplies.  It just takes a little creativity and a little desire to upgrade.  Remember the xbox uses a 3.3 standby mode.  So you have to mod you small power supply to do this.  Easy money,  just get a step down transformer tiny logic board.  Convert 5 volt volt stand by VSB to 3.3 VSB.  USING A BUCK CONVERTER.
