1. YES
2. YES
3. YES

- YES (No burnproof = A dead disc if your buffer runs dry)
- DEFAULT (No need to increase the buffer size)
This is what i got with these settings :( No idea what the problem is. With other settings, I was getting the spike at the layer break. Now I got it at the end.
However, game installed successfully.

That burn is ok, keep those settings and let the drive settle down while it formulates its write algorithms over the next 5-10 burns.

Ok thanks, will do that. That means I don't clear the OPC history after each burn, right?

okay do you recommend using the new version I downgraded to 2.5.6.0 and abgx360 is version 1.0.2 thinking it may have been the update that messed it up but i do not think it ever did burn xgd3 with these mkm-001 disks from singapore. had 8 coasters

Start by reading the first posts then continue by posting imgburn logs and kprobe scan charts... It's not possible to assist otherwise...

8 MKM001 Coaters Ouch!!!

I don't suppose this burn is ok as well, right? This my third burn after the one I posted a week ago and it seems it got worse.

Edit: Confirmed as a coaster. Tried to install it and got the "cannot read disc" error.

No, i haven't. But it's the first time that i got this kind of error. Last 4-5 burns installed fine. Do the logs look ok to you? How about that 8 PIF Max and Nero quality 64%?

If ImgBurn verifies and they install fine, then i would say all is well.

ImgBurn verified but it failed to install. I followed drunkenninja's suggestions. From my logs, can you see any setting that I may need to change?

It's likely the disc condition on this occasion, the flare up is nowhere near the layerbreak so a simlilar problem would have been encountered if you were burning a home dvd movie...

Basically your xbox does not read discs as well as your iHAS, thats not surprising though, reburn the disc and don't put anything in your drive with a nero quality of 64/100... Since you went through the effort to scan this disc, why would you (after seeiing a red indicators) put that disc into your xbox...

My last burn was 70% and you had told me that it's an ok burn. So I thought that I may as well check if the 64% burn installs. Is there a chance to get flagged if you put a badly burned disc in the console and try to install it even when offline?

The 70% was passable, thats about it... Sorry if I misled you but 64% is another ball game, I guess I am just to used to the numbers and what they mean...

If you see red in your graph, bin the disc, I thought the drive would improve like thy normally do not deteriorate. No-one knows how M$ play this game so it's impossible to say if you will gt flagged but I find it unlikely if the data verified...
