Hello, I'm new in the forum, but I've been a reader from a long time ago of the things posted in here, so I've been a passive member, I could say.
Here's the thing. Since XGD3 games came out, with their "all new way" of messing with our heads, forcing us to buy new burners and specific kind of media brand, in order to get them to work properly. I've been through a lot of issues to get this way of burning, as I think many of you have, but, finally I think I got something worth to share.
Let's assume you know how to flash your iHas, any of the versions you have, with the iMax firm. If not please visit: The official TUT for flashing iMax to your iHas. I got a iHas324 myself.
I'm not using VERBS, never have. I'm using "Optical Quantum" MediaID: RICOHJPN-D01-67, which could be considered a cheap media compared to VERBS, as a spin of 50 cost US$25, but following this process I haven't get not even one coaster out of almost 100 burns using this media.
Let's get straight to the point now, this is step by step what I have been doing.
** NOTICE: Is recommended to turn off the computer for a few secs after each step **
1 - Using the app MediaCodeSpeedEdit. I edited the iMax firm "iHAS-324B-AL1B-MKM001MKM003-final", replacing the media I'm using "Optical Quantum" MediaID: RICOHJPN-D01-67, with the MKM001 burn strategy , the flashed the firm to my burner. My burner was in the stock firm before I did this. Don't know if flashing straight would be a go, my advice would be, get the drive to stock first.
2 - Using the app EEPROM_Utility_6.2.0. I cleared the media learn, thing I do before every burn, and in the "options" TAB, I selected "Enable all options", this will enable Smart Burn, Force Hyper Tuning, Over Speed Writing, and, Online Hyper Tuning.
3 - Using the app ImgBurn. I got the following settings. TOOLS>SETTINGS>WRITE [Check "Perform OPC before write", Uncheck "Enable Burn-Proof". TOOLS>SETTINGS>OI [Buffer size "500MB", Buffer Recovery Thresholds, Main "25%", Device "50%". Make sure in "Change Advanced Settings", that the Smart Burn, Force Hyper Tuning, Over Speed Writing, and, Online Hyper Tuning are all "ENABLED".
4 - Final step to "BURN". This is what I do, and could be found by some of you as extremist, but, since I'm doing this I haven't get a fail burn, this have worked every time, Open ImgBurn as Administrator, select the .DVD of the image you want to burn, AND VERY IMPORTANT, before starting the burn, DISABLE your Antivirus software, Firewall, Internet Connection, and any other program. I close everything with "Task Manager" before starting to burn, I even close the EXPLORER.EXE Process. Put the blank media IN, select 4X and "BURN!".
4.1 - Some people say, burning under SAFE MODE, also, give wonderful results.
- Doing the same process, I always get 100% verified burns, without any sight of error.
- Clear the OPC History on ImgBurn, under "Change Advanced Settings", and on EEPROM_Utility_6.2.0, before every burn. Helps the ImgBurn to threat the media like if it was the first time, without any bogus conflict between ImgBurn, the media, and the burner;
- Do not forget to change the media book-type to be burnt as a DVD-ROM;
- Always check and verify your ISO image with ABGX360 before burning;
- If you have difficulties getting good XGD2 or XGD3 burns, give this a try, you might not regret it;
-Leave your PC all alone while is doing its job, is going to be just 20 mins, It might be crucial to get the burn 100% verified;
- Disabling screen savers, or any other screen transitional process, might help to get better results.
If you guys need me to illustrate this reading with some pics to make it more understandable, Just let me know.
Hope it helps some of you...!

This is exactly the same as R3d's settings except for the media speed code edit part. And by disabling all programs you might as well be in safe mode. But that's fantastic you got it to work 100% for ya.

So,.. 100 XGD3 burns ha?I haven't get not even one coaster out of almost 100 burns using this media.
Going on a hunch here and saying you're not only a pirate, but a distributor too!
Bad bad boy,,
Maybe They Do Verify to 100% But I Bet he Kprobe Results are Not With In The Guide Lines
