After reading as many tutorials as I could find, I’ve come to a dead end when it comes to burning XBOX games to DVD-R.
Here is my dilemma
I have a modded XBOX, with a more recent version of EvoX
My XBOX drive can read burnt DVD-R’s and CD-R’s and know for a fact that it can read the Shintaro 1x DVD-R’s, which is the median I used for my DVD testing.
I have created an ISO of a small XBOX game ( 300 mb ) for testing purposes.
First of, I tried using NERO to burn the ISO.
To ensure that the ISO was working fine, I burnt the ISO to a CD-R which works fine. So I knew the ISO was fine.
I attempted to burn the same ISO to a DVD-R @ 1x. When done, it was inserted into my XBOX and it could not be recognized
( did not boot - appears as an UNKNOWN format )
Then I tried burning the ISO in RecordMax Now, once again @ 1x on the Shintaro DVD-R.
I then tried to burn it using Alcohol 120 1.4.7 which also resulted in a failure.
I have tried 5 different media types including MAXMAX DVD-R 4x / Shintaro DVD-R 4x / Imation DVD+R 4x …
I have burnt DVD movies before, and they have worked fine in a DVD player, however, are unrecognised in the XBOX.
( This is where I suspect XBOX is having trouble reading the DVD that I am producing, however I know that my drive can read the media so I am confused as to what could be causing the problem )
Has anyone else had any problems like this, if so, have you been able to resolve them.
I have pretty much read 95% of the tutorials out there on XBOX DVD Backup, but most pretty much suggest that you burn the ISO and it works.
Please excuse the long post, but I appreciate the time you’ve taken to actually read it all. Hopefully you can offer some suggestions.
If you require any more information, I will try to get back to you as soon as possible.
