Okay, so i recently flashed my samsung drive, and it reads the burned discs and all that, but every so often it says the disc is unreadable :\ is this a regular thing that happens with flashed drives?

Everytime i get the message i check the disc and its fine :S
So can anyone help me fix this or just inform me if its normal?
Thanks :smile:

Does the disk eventually work? If not, the disk may actually be corrupt.

No flashing isn't right, and illegal in most places. It's not right or fair to flash people.

You either have crap media, a crap burn, or a crap laser.

There's too many variables and without you describing your burning process, how can you expect anyone to troubleshoot the problem.

Okay, Okay, sorry guys :o
and the disc does work, but its every now and then it decides not to :|

I used AonePlus+ Gold edition and i burned the iso using imgburn at 2.4x speed am not sure about the condition of the laser but the xbox it was in is rather old the MFR date is 2007-03-06

If that enough information for you?

That's better.

Having to burn slow is an old-wives tale. You can try burning at 4x. Also check to see if your burners firmware is up to date.

And yes, if you use your 360 plenty and having a '07 console, your laser could very well be on it's last leg.
