    So far I have burned about 5 games, and none of them have worked.. I always get a 'game is not compatible' or 'disc cannot be read' error..

    The guy I bought the XBox from says I need to be burning at 2x speed..

    Does that really matter?

    I hate to keep making DL coasters..

    are you using img burn? if so burning at 2.4x should be fine . also go to tools , settings , write and type
    1913760 in the layer break option , thats what i use and never had one coaster.

    This is kind of related......Is it best to use DVD-R OR DVD+R
    And burn speed would have been my next question!

    It depends on your setup, burner and disks. I have always let imgburn burn at whatever the default speed is. Every disk seems to come out fine.

    Do not force the layer break!!!! AGBX will create a .DVD file for each ISO which will tell the burner the correct layer break, they will be different for each ISO. Make sure you open imgburn from the .DVD not the .ISO file, it will give you a warning anyway. It is also a good idea to patch each ISO to SSV2 and patch in the 2.5 data for the 2.5 games. You can find all the files needed on the AGBX web site.

    AGBX the disk after burning to be sure there are no corruptions.

    Because DVD-R DL dont work.


    Yes, I am using Verbatim 8x DVD+R DL discs

    are you using img burn? if so burning at 2.4x should be fine . also go to tools , settings , write and type
    1913760 in the layer break option , thats what i use and never had one coaster.


    I am using another program that burns ISO files.. Do I have to use imgburn? I think I have it on my
    computer, I didn't know it made a difference..

    I do have AGBX, and I was told by the guy I got the XBox from to run it on each ISO.. I ran it on the ISO (Cloudy With A Chance Of Meatballs) and saw no errors come up. From there I burned it but the XBox wouldn't read it.

    Is there a guide for download->[clean/prep/burn/whatever]->play in xbox..?

    Can I play games off of a regular single layer DVD if they are small enough? Some of the older original XBox games are small, but I haven't gotten any of them to work yet either...

    I've always burned them at 10x, never had a problem.

    Since not a single game worked, I fear that there might be some problems with your firmware mod.

    those 5 discs are garbage now

    just follow Mantis41 instructions, make sure you choose the .dvd file when burning
