    Media can make a difference in a case like this.

    so you think that if im having trouble out of a few games that play sometimes just reburn to anthor type of disk and they should boot fine . Is it with the slims that seem to be more picky about your disk or could it be that i used the wrong fw .Was just reading that if your drive said 9504 from factory and updated to a 0225 then use the 0225u fw but i used the plain 0225 fw on my 9504 replacement

    Sounds like the media or the laser to me. I bet the laser, but why not use a good brand of disc just to be sure? Verbatim DVD+R DL. If it sometimes reads your games and sometimes not with the same game, I believe it's the shoddy quality of those Memorex's. Verbatims don't suffer from that CAD syndrome.

    Every game I have is on Verbatim, and I have duplicates of them on Memorex because my daughter is very careless with the discs in her console. That, and I get Memorex for free.

    I am one person who has never been able to agree with the disc quality arguement. I guess that's because i never had a problem with any. Trust me i have used waaay cheaper brands and still use them. Memorex and Sony do more than fine - as long as your drive successfully burns the game.

    I havent done the very latest firmware update so i cant tell what happens if you use the wrong firmware 0225,0225u... but i think the best thing to do is to read through a clear and easy to understand tutorial and reflash the drive. I'm sure u missed something.

    ...otherwise it could be your laser like eebeejay said.
