    IMGBurn Setup: OPC "OFF", 2.4x

    After only 1 out of 3 or 4 good burns, I decided to change it up to get a better second layer. The first layer was perfect, but the second always went high. PI max of 200+ and averages of 40-60 range. Not good. So I played around and made a few coasters to come up with these settings for the MKM-001 Verbs:

    EEprom Utility: Hyper Tuning "OFF", Smartburn "ON", Over Speed "ON", Online Hyper Tuning "OFF"

    IMGBurn Setup:
    OPC "ON", 4x (I also clear OPC in IMGburn advanced section before each burn....not sure if it helps though)

    Now I got three successful burns in a row, going for #4 as I write this (not on the same PC of course). I also don't touch the PC when it is burning and shut down any and all apps that are running. The isos are on a separate HDD also.

    I have three Modern Warfare 3 coasters using the old settings, but after the final settings change, it passed KPRobe on the first burn, well I got one read of 11 PIF on MW3, but its on the layer break so I'm hoping its fine. Kind of odd how burning at 4x is better than at 2.4x, but it worked for me. Maybe for you as well. I forgot to save my new MW3 KPRobe, but I can post the pics when this burn is done and I can run the disc in KPRobe again.


    Here is the old burn with all settings enabled and 2.4x:

    Here is the new burn with only OverSpeed and Smart Burn on at 4x w/OPC:
    I decided to try this method after 4 coasters under different settings / computers... and voila !

    It worked !!!

    Thank You Sir.

    Burn proof

    I ended up following some advice on a different thread and decided to try using Overspeed to burn my discs at 4.0x.
    (I am trying it with OPC on at the moment but will try one without soon.)

    I was told a spike was normal and acceptable at the layer break, but here are the results I got when I burned it at 4.0x instead:

    Model : 7-0-0-0 G:ATAPI iHAS124 B AL0S
    Disc : DVD+R DL , MKM001 [Mitsubishi Chemical Corporation]
    Speed : 4x
    ECC blocks sum (PI/PIF) : 8/1
    Scanned range : 0 - 3827473
    Sampling count : 221946
    Errors : 0
    PI Max : 21
    PI Average : 1.16
    PI Total : 32431
    PIF Max : 5
    PIF Average : 0.06
    PIF Total : 1798

    Hope it helps!
    I hope I get a better spindle of dvds next time.
    Do you have burn proof enabled?

    I will probably cop alot of crap but here goes.

    I could have two machines 100% indentical with os , ram , etc and 100% identical drives with lt max and have a spindle of verbatims.

    Burn them exactly the same with no differences what so ever and still get different kprobe results ...

    I have actually tried this ...

    It is dependent on the actual discs even from the same spindle. My theory is that these verbatims are mass produced and the machines used to make them may need adjusting every so often or maybe the dye used wasn't as refined etc, this would be within verbatims guidelines/specs. So some in the spindle maybe at the bottom or middle may give better kprobe results.

    I believe that kprobe is not needed aslong as the game installs 100% and also having a xbox360 console that has a dvd drive thats in good condition.

    I had to pot tweak the laser and regrease the drive for my console to get games working and installing but about 12 months later the constant dirty disc error or unable to authorise so I replaced the laser with new one and now everythings 100% in working order.

    I say that kprobe means nothing aslong as the game installs 100% because even originals can be dirty or scratched which if this was detected by M$ then there would be alot of banned people.

    Aslong as you burn with ihas on verbatims or whatever aslong as it's a 100& burn and your xbox drive is in good working order then you will be fine playing on xbox live.

    If you have 2.4x verbatims then burn them at 2.4x

    if you have the 4x-8x then burn them at 4x ... I found out the hard way that if you try and burn the 4x media at 2.4x that it would crap out at layer break.

    I burn with these settings using the 4x verbatims :

    Desktops screen saver turned off

    i/o buffer in image burn set to 500 megs

    OPC ON

    Smart burn on

    I click burn and walk away and dont go near pc till done .. also I make sure avg or whatever is not going to kick in and do an update or download.
