The so called "Bulqpaq Riteks" are B-Grade quality dye and definitely have more issues than the ones that come straight from Ritek.

Just out of curiosity, which DVD Drive do you have in your XBOX? The reason why I ask is that certain DVD Drives are pickier than others.

Don't touch the ones with brushes on the disc. They will scratch the hell out of your lens. My recommendation is to take the drive apart and clean it with a non-abrasive cloth. It's the best way to ensure it gets cleaned properly. BTW the Samsung is the most flexible XBOX DVD Drive to have in terms of media. Doesn't say much for the Bulqpaq discs does it?

Not meaning to question your wisdom jerserrace777, but how can a plastic brush scratch a glass lens? Glass is harder than plastic, therefore plastic shouldn't be able to scratch glass. Same principle as diamond; they use diamond to cut glass because diamond is one of the hardest substances out there....

Strangely enough, the only drive I have that out-and-out refuses Riteks is the Xbox, and it has a Samsung drive in it. Other than that it'll take any old junk. I tend to use the crap I buy for testing purposes and which doesn't work well on the Xbox....
