Ssseth (And other who may be watching),
Well, I went and bought some TDK DVD - R discs to try and see if I can get backed-up DVD movies to play in the XBOX. And I have still had no luck.
First I tried using DVD shrink to make make the movie within size. Then I used Image tool burn (version 1.x) to make the .ISO and the used DVD Decrypter to put the .ISO image back to a DVD - R disc.
The XBOX still said unreconized.
So, then I started thinking, I will download and tried Nero (126.96.36.199) to try and get it to work.
Pretty much the same process. I had used DVD shrink to make the movie within size. IMG tool burn to make the .ISO and then I launched Nero. I finally found the force XBOX compat mode (under UDF/ISO tab). And it started burning away on a DVD - R disc.
I was all jazzed about it, I am using a DVD - R disc and using Nero (Which I read some where on this forum) will make the disc work on an XBOX.
Afterwards, still the same error message, disc is not reconized.
So, I am stuck again.
I am using a first generation XBOX, so I am not sure about the drive. That could be a factor, although I wonder.
And a couple of other things that I have noticed. (And maybe you can help me with, or somewhere here can, or maybe I will cross post if need be).
I have explained my process for backing-up DVD's. And it has worked flawlessly. But now since I have installed Nero, Img tool burn does not output the file to an .ISO file to a folder I name. It just goes ahead and burns the disc right then and there. And there seems to be no more use for the process of using DVD Decrypter. Is this normal? Since I have Nero, just shrink it and launch the img burn tool and I am done, or am I messing it up?
And the second thing I noticed, using img tool burn, I looked within the settings and there is check box for DVD-ROM book type. Granted I found this after the fact and was way too late to test, I was wondering if someone knows what this is for and if it will work for this problem?
And lastly, in your opinion, am I doing this right? I mean, I am using the free stuff and it has worked pretty good so far. But now I do have Nero installed and that burned the DVD - R disc fine. (Granted it worked in all other players except the XBOX). So, (Just looking for opinions here), Should I still with the way I am doing things, or should I change the way / process I am doing it for better looking results?
Sorry for the long(ish) post and thanks in advance for any help / opinions.
