  • "This disk is undreadable"

    Hello everyone.. great to be a part of this community.

    I am a little confused on something.
    I have a DG-16D2S drive and it has been flashed with LT 3.0. I was having some problems on disk read errors so I went ahead a purchased a new laser.

    After installing the laser, I play one of my backups and it reads and works just fine for about 10, maybe 15 minutes then I get the message "this disk is unreadable".

    I am using burnmax firmware with an iHas at 2x on Verbatims and injecting the correct topology data but am constantly getting this error.
    Has anyone else experienced this and came to a resolution?
    I bought the laser from a reputable dealer on eBay.

    Thank you all in advance.

      Simply to add to BigBoss: are you playing off disc or HDD installed data? Try installing if you are doing the other one.

          yeah, i meant "disk is unreadable" lol
          my fault

          "kprobe"? never heard of that.
          also, i'm running this backup directly off the disk.

          installing it to the hard drive makes a difference?

            What do you mean injecting topology data? Running the ISO through abgx360 I hope. Kprobe checks the quality of your burn. Do you know what an xgd3 game is and the purpose of Burnermax fw? I should advise you to download kprobe and run your backup disc through it at 4x after which post a screenshot of the results here. Also did you check your lasers pot before and after changing it out? As an adjustment is all you may need.

              It could be worth checking the laser ribbon cable, they can split giving the same issue.
