I just bought an xbox system. Thomsons aren't all that bad. It plays some of my cheap ass copied DVD movies perfectly, depends on the media. The ones that it plays flawlessy are just cheap ass and no name that i bought a few years ago. Talk about tempermental. I want to get a mod chip installed soon and i am just wondering what is the best type of +R media to use for backing up my games? I will be able to determine this by copying movies and seeing how well they turn out on different brands of media. I am thinking high-quality media along the lines of Verbatim or TDK Gold discs. What makes it even more confusing is that these big companies outsource to smaller manufactures in dodgy countries like India and China. I don't wanna end up with so many brands and millions of blanks discs i don't require. Can anyone offer some first hand experience with DVD media and XBOX copying games? Preferably a Thomson drive using +R media? Many thanks, Jean.
