CD-i 210 and burned cd's

Post by Negative Metal » Tue Jul 24, 2007 9:57 pm

Since my copy of Mad Dog McCree got dammaged so bad that I can't play it anymore I wanted to make backup copies of the games I have and most important Tetris and PacPanic.
My CD-i player (cd-i 210) however refuses to play the copies.
The screen turns blue (or whatever that collor is), turns black and then sets it self back to the tv mode.
I got lucky once when I got a glimpse of the philips logo but that was as far as it got.
Does anyone know if I can fix that problem or is it bad luck that my player doesn't like burned stuff?
Hope anyone can helpt.
Thanks

John

It depends on the brand of media you're using and quite possible also on the speed that you burned with; slower burn speed might give better results. You'll just have to do some experimenting.

Are the burned discs recognized as CD-i by e.g. IsoBuster? That would indicate that you're burning them the right way and that the problems are purely with the media.
