    i have a pioneer 111d and have tried all week to burn to a Aone disc using multiple firmware versions, ISO's i know work from previous games. i am using the latest version of IMGBURN but everytime i start to burn it gets to 51% and i get a Power Calibration Area Error. i have tried multiple firmware version's even from the Dangerous brothers website its buggin the hell out of me that some people are able to burn to these CD's but i can't
    any advice would be greatly appreciated
    thanks

    i have no idea what the media code is sorry just that the packet is exactly the same as the ones all over the internet saying they run very well on xbox 360's the media code might be the bit in Japanese or Chinese

    Pop it back in your pc, open up Imgburn. Go to "Mode -> Read". Then in the window on the right, scroll down and you'll see "Disc ID" followed by some letters and numbers. That'll be your media code.

    k now either its your burner or theres on thing to do buy some verbatims dual layer dvds and try the burn again if it fails then you know that it is your dvd burner if it doesnt then you know the disks you brought were either a bad batch or just shite for your dvd burner
    or what you could do if you have both the iso and .dvd file then try burning with xbox back up creator and make sure where it states nero and img burn that you choose the 1st option xbc try this and let me know ok

    I have tried memorex, I was able to make a backup and it will verify to be perfect burn in IMGburn but XBOX360 cannot read cheap media well. So even if you don't get a coaster with cheap media the xbox will have hard time reading it. The only media that workes fine for me is verbatim, I will no longer use any other media for backups.

    iv'e used Verbatums for about a year but i heard so many good things about these Aone discs and there alot cheaper using the same drive as me and yet i had such a pain in the backside trying to get one to work and its working fine in my xbox so far i will try a few things but will probably switch back to verbs in the near future

    you get what you pay for....also cheap media even if it does work will burn out your xboxs laser (it has to try really hard to read it)

    I've made over 40 xbox 360 games using Aone disks without one failure so it has to be your drive.
