hi all i thought id just make a quick post to show some users who are messaging me for what settings i use for my writes . i use burnermax payload tool with an ihas 524/D. i now only use verbatim disc id MKM 003 00 for all the newer games ie battlefield 4 gta v etc etc . other types of media ie AONES are great for the older xgd2 games but you really are gonna waste youre money buying and using these for most of the new releases . verbatims will fully install to your HDD aones will not . i can only burn at 4X when using my ihas burner some people are lucky enough to have burners that will write at 1x 2x 2.4 x the slower you burn your backups the better . here are a couple of screenshots of my imgburn settings . these settings work flawlessley for me and what i always do is not use the desktop for anything whislt writing a disc so no surfing the web at all unless you want a coaster . i always reset my desktop after 5 burns . hope this helps for those of you bangin out coasters .
