    Failed 360 Burn - I/O Error

    Ive just flashed my BenQ drive and trying to burn a backup but it has come up I/O Error when verifying as per image in next post.

    Any ideas why? And how i can sort it as i dont want to make too many coasters out of these verbatims!

    What drive are you using?
    Do you have anything open which isn't allowing exclusive access to the drive?
    What speed are you burning at?

    2.4x im burning at, using imgburn.
    my drive is: Optiarc DVDRW AD-7170 SATA Drive
    Firefox was open but that was it.

    Try another disc, could just have been a bad disc.
    If that 'coasters' too it will be somethingto do with the drive.

    I get a bad burn once in a while, although i'm using aone.

    hell yeah! tried it in the 360 and its working! so verifying just didnt work for some reason...still seems odd though!

    It might work up to a certain point and then crash. theres obviously an error on it somewhere. What % did it crash at?

    Plus you have the added risk of being banned from XBL.

    I 100% wouldn't be putting this disk anywhere near my 360. Yes it loads, but its got (at least) 1 bad sector.

    Have you tried updating the fw on your drive? PC drive I mean

    I used to get those kinda errors with our old burner. Got a new one and all was good.
    If you used cheap discs I´d say that´s the problem but you don´t.

    what drive did you buy? just so if i have to buy a new one i can get a feel for what i should be looking for.

    Used to have a samsung which worked always worked fine. I guess a lot of burning wore the laser down quite a bit.
    Have a liteon now.
    In general the make doesn´t matter much, just make sure you don´t buy cheap crap makes ;-)

    play.com have a good pioneer for £17 or 18 quid delivered works well with xbox 360 burning

    kk cheers, might have to invest...works out cheaper in the long run ;-)

    well 7% through the game with no problems...yet. :-D

    You could always try and clean the lens first. Worth a try I guess

    Buy a Pioneer 115 (or whatever they're up to) and you'll be fine

    If the disc you are using gives you a read error whilst verifying in the drive that you burnt it in then you need to switch to verify mode in ImgBurn then verify against image.

    If you still get read error/s after also cleaning lens in readers, then the disc is no good and needs BINNING. Failing verification means the disc is useless.

    Also udpate the drives firmware .... firmwarehq.com/dow…tml

    Make sure tray is closed WITHOUT any disc in and do not stop or switch off / restart until prompted

    Update the firmware of the drive.

    If you still get read errors on verify, change the media you are using
