Try 4x. hey Cynthia Need a bit of help pretty please. I recently purchased GTA and wish to make a backup of it. I think i have almost got it right, but just need a bit of verification. I have the following: 1-Liteon DH-20A3S X8 Dual layer writer 2-Verbatim DVD+R/DL Matt Silver media - 8X Writable 3-A modded 360 (not sure what mod unfortunately nor what drive i have in my 360, and dont know how to find out?) So i think i've half figured out what to do. I have DVD Decrypter v188.8.131.52. This is what i used to rip GTA. After opening the application, i select Mode > ISO > Read. I then save the ISO to my NTFS drive. This results in a MDS file (a few kb in size) and a ISO file (just over 7 gb in size). I've read alot about a .DVD file required for IMGburn. However DVD Decryptor only outputs .ISO and .MDS. Am i doing something wrong? To burn, i use IMGBurn 184.108.40.206 - Here, i set the layer break to 1913760 in the Settings > Write TAB. Then i booktype to DVD-ROM. Then, i select the MDS file. Is this correct? i've read alot of posts which speak about selecing a .DVD or .00 file, but DVD decrypter doesn't output these files. After that, i set the burn to 2.4 speed (i hear that a lower burn speed results in a better / more stable burn). The game worked initially but after a while it froze and gave me a message about the disc being dirty, so now i just play the original instead. Out of curiousity, is the backup information above correct ? or have i done something wrong?
