Question Vet turns Newbie - General DC Burning Help Needed

sponsored links

As above, PSX vet turns DC newbie ... hope someone can offer some suggestions.

I have yet to burn a working game or even the boot disc using DiscJuggler 3.50.800 and Verbatims (both Valu & Data Lifes). I'm not sure if it's DJ or the discs.

I burned -one- working disc (the Utopic boot disc) using Nero and Memorex. Now before I go out and buy a ton of Memorex CDs (which the PSX hates), can someone offer some assistance?

The settings are fine b/c these are d/l games atm. Such a thing as a badly cracked DJ (like CDRWin with the blacklisted serials)? Turning out coasters on purpose?

Also, for future reference ... what should the settings be on games I rip? (i.e. Mode 2, block size ???, etc)

TIA for any help you can offer.

You could have a messed up DJ. You could also have a bad batch of cdr's(not likely though). Memorex cdr's work fine for me so long as they arent the black ones. Verbatims are excellent.

Chances are you won't need a boot disc unless the game is very old. Most of them are self-bootable. My advice would be to try Nero for your burning. Has never failed me. You need not change any of the settings when using it either.

A bad crack for both CDRwin and Discjuggler could be a problem yes.

I tend to have problems with DiscJggler, so I use cdi2nero to convert all my .cdi files to .nrg and then burn with nero (which you seem to have been successful doing)

Thanx for the replies all ... Verbs have always worked for me too, just not on the DC thus far ... thought maybe DC didn't like Verbs. I'll try a different version of DJ and then I'll try cdi2nero. Unfortunately, I'll have to copy my rar files to a cd and transfer them to another PC b/c I can't run any DOS programs atm (new, totally unrelated problem)

Try getting Discjuggler 3.0 as it is a more stable version. Sometimes you need to change the mode to Mode 1 instead of Audio, I had to do that with Last Blade 2. You can still get DJ 3.0 on

Hope this Helps
