DVDFab Decryptor + ImgBurn = Unplayable DVD movie in xbox 360? (Microsoft Xbox 360 Elite)

#1

[qanda]This thread is about the Microsoft Xbox 360 Elite. Click here to see full specs[/qanda]I am a Mac user, but the DVD ripping/burning selection is absolutely brutal so I do all of my burning and ripping in Parallels.

I have an external samsung se-204s with a patched TS02 firmware (by Patch Utility). I’m trying to make backups of all my DVDs to Verbatim +R DL discs but the one I ripped and burned today (Transformers) does not work on my xbox 360 (it says ‘unplayable disc’) but it plays fine on a crappy $20 standalone DVD player (including not skipping at the layer break I chose in ImgBurn – the firmware patch changed the book-type setting to DVD-ROM for my burned discs, I believe).

I ripped the DVD with DVDFab and then burned with ImgBurn following its accompanying directions to the T.

Can anyone help me out here? Ideally, I’d like my backups to play on the xbox 360 since it is hooked up to the main TV.

Hmm…How do you edit posts?

I should mention that the xbox is NOT the Elite, just the regular Premium xbox 360 (white; 20GB hard drive).

Do they have crappy drives? The movies I burned with Toast on the Mac side work on it (except I get the stupid layer-break pause which is what I was trying to avoid by using ImgBurn).

by default ImgBurn will bitset dvd-rom

20:24:52 Book Type Setting: N/A

looks like your current drive/firmware does not support booktype bitsetting.

again i dont know, but does the xbox 360 require dvd-rom to play correctly.

seems ripping and burning was good if the disc will play in another stand alone player.

i do know, there are many happy owners of xbox 360 here at cdfreaks. lets hope someone will come around and offer some valuable information. :slight_smile:

I flashed my drive and the patcher (Patch Utility which i got off these forums) had the option to set that in the hardware, so I did it (set the book-typing to DVD-ROM). It seems to have worked. DVD +R DL burned with the drive now show up as regular DVD-Roms in OS X and in Nero DiscSpeed…do you think that is still the issue?

Besides, the DVD +R DLs i burned in Toast (with a different, non-patched drive – the internal one in my MacBook Pro) were not set with a book-type to DVD-ROM and they played fine on the xbox 360
