Having Touble Burning Back Up X360 Games

Recommended Posts

So. Here's the basic deal. And I'll try to give you all the information I have, and would vastly appreciate it if you could help.

 

Recently, I have been trying to write a copy of (well my first) back-up. I have an Asus M51sn Laptop utilizing (what I now wish I could rip out and throw at the damn wall) a TSSTcorp TS-L632H AS02 DVD Rewriter. After verifying the back-ups with the original disc (successfully), I tried to make a copy.

 

I. Opened up ImgBurn

2. Inserted a blank Sony DVD+R DL.

3. Loaded the .dvd.

4. Went into Book Type settings, selected "Samsung" and changed Book Type to DVD-ROM, as well as for the DVD+R DL medium.

5. Checked to make sure (in the right pane) that the Layer Break is set to 1913760.

6. Then proceeded to burn.

7. Burn completes and verifies successfully.

8. Pop into a flashed Xbox 360 using the latest iXtreme 1.6 flash method (which I know was successful).

9. Get about 20-30 minutes into a game, then upon a level load the Xbox 360 actually ceases and has to be manually restarted.

 

Now. I have come to two absolute conclusions to why this is happening.

 

1. My TSSTcorp TS-L632H AS02 DVD Rewriter is going bad. Or the firmware needs to be upgraded. (But of course, FIRMWARE CANNOT BE FOUND ANYWHERE FOR THIS DEVICE. Samsung actually doesn't even support the device. Neither does Asus.).

2. The Sony DVD+R DL mediums are not good enough for this type of burning. I know the extremely recommended type to use is Verbatim, but I just went through 3 of the 25 pack of the Sony's (thus meaning there is no way I'm getting that $35 dollars refunded). And of course, all 3 of those have been turned into coasters when trying to troubleshoot this matter.

 

So what do you guys think? I know there might be some more methods to try, such as cleaning my Xbox 360 drive and cleaning my DVD Rewriter. But I don't think this is the problem.

 

Also I want to add, I have written at speeds 2x, 2.4x, and 4x. None have produced a good copy (all coasters). Also, when placing the burned disc at an angle to a light, there seems to be a "wavy" pattern on some portions of the disc.

 

Thanks for your time guys.

You have the answers right in front of you. Your drive is crappy and your discs are worse. Get an external drive, hopefully a pioneer or some other good brand an get rid of the crap discs you bought. Since the disc verifies correctly, you have faith in your method of creating the .iso, your firmware is the latest and the replay device is modified correctly it doesn't leave much to work with...and post a log of the burn please.

It was the discs I was using. Buying a pack of Verbatim's fixed all my problems. Haven't a coaster since buying them.

 

Thanks for the help.
