    Default Purple BulkPaq r2

    Quiet a few people have recommended these DVDr's for Xbox backups, I have got some and tried to burn Starwars Ep2 DVD to them using a Image I know that works (as I have burned 2 versions on Neo DVDR's and 1 on TDK DVDRW that are fine) all at X 1 speed using Primo.

    The burns complete OK and the DVD Menus are OK and the movie play until 1/2 way through when they stop and are F**Ked basically. Also tried to play these in my DVD player and the Xbox - both fail at the same point.

    I repeated this process again on another Bulkpaq purple - same problem.

    Has anyone else used these for DVD movies (not VCD) and had any problems? I havent Tried an Xbox title yet so I dont know good there are for them yet ?

    cheers

    I have done both DVD movies & XBox games and they seem fine, I'm using Primo and like you doing them at 1X. My writer is the Vivastar DVD-R/RAM drive (pana LFD-311).

    I've used about 75 of these over the past weeks and had the odd duffer, but generally they have been fine.

    The DVD Player's I have used are X-Wave 900 and Pioneer 444.

    Just my ten cents....

    My xbox dosent like burned movies on them tho but I believe this is a mastering problem (or just the xbox being crap - they work fine on my ps2 and with windvd 4.

    Thanks Guys,

    I appreciate the responses. I will do some more testing made I got unlucky with the 2 disks I used. The Burner is a pioneer 104 with the lastest firmware patch for the x4 disk problem on it.

    Cheers

    The X-Wave has always liked DVD-R, if I recall, the only discs it didnt like were unbranded Vivastars, which seemed to stutter about half-way thru the movie.... I have no probs with the new Bulkpaq discs Gen3 R2...so far....

    UPDATE

    the backup of halo I made on these discs works OK on another Xbox - just not on mine. The movies are screwed still but they seem to work on Xbox - maybe I need to adjust the POT ?
