Does anyone know a brand of CDRW that works good with a Thompson drive? I can't get a BIOS disc to work and the only thing I can think of to try is to use a different brand of CDRW. I always get "No BIOS found - Halting" from my Xecuter 2.3b Lite.

Its in the tutorials.....but what brand of CDRW are you using right now? It also says they reccomend Ritek DVD-R, which is supposed to work with all three drives. Good luck.



' dvd drives and best type of media '


Hey here is a list of dvd drives and best type of media that works. Hope that it helps.

When burning for the Xbox, we best recommend Ritek DVD-R for all Xbox DVD-ROM drives.

Samsung Drive:
Reads all CD-R/RW
Reads all DVD-R/RW
Will not read DVD+R/RW

Thomson Drive:
Will not read CD-R
Will only read SOME (generally expensive media) CD-RW
Reads all DVD-R/RW
Reads all DVD+R/RW

Philips Drive:
Will not read CD-R
Will read SOME (generally expensive media) CD-RW
Reads all DVD-R/RW
Does not read DVD+R/RW

Right now I don't have a DVD writer so I am stuck with CDRW's. I tried CompUSA and Verbatim. Are there any specific brands of CDRW's that work with the Thompson DVD?

The Xbox Version doesn't matter bud, only the DVD Drive. The Thompson unfortunately is the pickiest of drives.

I have heard of other members using a brand called Ritek.

I have also heard of people getting the memorex brands to work. Are you sure you are burning it right?? That could also be the issue.

maybe that will help.
