    disc unreadable error mid game?

    ok guys, first real post here... ive softmodded and got games working, eg nsmb and paper mario. ive burnt the games on a a taiyo yuden 16x dvd+r, but i burnt it on the lowest speed the dis can which is at 8x.

    the games work fine, but at time i get a disc read error mid game. sometime all i need to do is take the disc out and wipe it, and other times this wont work. its happened a few times with both game(only games i have which are copied) ... my question is, whats the problem. why am i getting the disc is unreadable error. is it because of the discs... burnt incorrectly, wrong disc type? anything else?

    any help appreciated

    thanks!

    have been looking through that sticky on what discs to use... seems it may be due to using dvd+

    i ordered some more taiyo yudens, but 16x dvd-... will they be ok to use or should i also pick up the verbs aswell?

    sounds like scratched dvds, or a bad dvd burner.
