actionarcade Posted July 21, 2021 Share Posted July 21, 2021 I can run just about any backup disc if I turn the 3DO on after it has been sitting for some time, but after 5min no matter what game I try it will begin stuttering and eventually lock up. I then need to wait some time to try again as otherwise if I power it down or eject the disc and try again it will always kick it back out and won't start like it does the first time. HOWEVER, I can always put in a music CD and it will play perfectly fine right after. I've tried two kinds of media and I'm burning them at 1x speed, the highly rated Taiyo Yuden kind and a Memorex. Only the Taiyo Yuden will actually work. Is this a sign that the laser mechanism is being over stressed by the CDRs? Or what might the diagnosis be? I'm an original 3DO system owner from 1994 and have purchased many boxed games legitimately from the stores during that time period. I'm just looking to play games off of CDRs right now. Thanks for your input. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
