Hi guys, I am trying to overcome an ongoing issue with my Pioneer 111D and Acer laptop. The back up image on every game I have is burned to 100% on both my external Pioneer and my internal LG burner, but I can never achieve anything higher than 2.4x. The drives both rated at above this and I have tried various 8x media including verbs and Ricoh. I wouldn't be bothered but all my back ups load up and then freeze shortly into the game, and to solve the problem, I am told 4x could help. (I use Samsung SH-D162 for ripping & XBC and imageburn for writing) Very frustrating!!
