Hello everyone!
I had a question about burning Xbox games. will burned original Xbox games work on Xbox 360? Has anyone ever tried this?
I did it once, I burned the game to a dual layer DVD and the 360 did read it how ever it was stuck on the white Xbox screen.
Any solutions?

Yes it is.
So you've tried burning the complete iso version and the xiso of the same game, and none of them worked? The xiso one giving you region error could be legit, did you check the region of the iso & xiso in XDVDmulleter?
I would try burning another game (compatible), and check the ISO image if it's region free or not beforehand..
Also what burning software are you using?

My consoles region is PAL. I think the version of the game I have is NTSC. Maybe that's why it gave me an error. I do have the PAL version of another game, should I try that and see if it works?
I'm using Clone CD. Any other program I use gives me an error.

use dvd mulleter. I've never had a failed burn with that one. make sure you're burning to good media dual-layer like verbatim.

Could be.. Seems like the 360 wouldn't accept any out of region games (even with the flashed disc drive), and if that's the case you're options are limited to PAL, or some that can be turned into RF..

Worth trying, just to see if the Xbox partition is working as it should..

yeah, not sure if a flashed drive is still restricted to region on an rgh. most people don't use the drive anymore, in some cases, removing the drive in favor of a fan in its place. the power light blinks if the dvd drive is removed, but it won't affect the system. there's also a patch to the nand that will disable that annoyance as well as the more difficult way of soldering some cables to the mobo.

Update 3:
I burned the PAL version of a game, inserted it into my Xbox but when I launch it the Xbox screen flashes once and then I get this error:
This Xbox game has encountered a problem and cannot continue.
X: 5832.0. B: 1884.0
Any suggestions?

with dvd mulleter? the flash is a good sign as it suggests the system is detecting the compatibility files.

Nope. I just burned the XISO file to a dual layer DVD using Clone CD. The 360 detects the game, but it can't start it. And for some reason I don't get the update prompt for backwards compatible games.

nothing else. I don't really recall this procedure too much as it's been like 15 years since I burned an xbox disc. I've had a jtag since 2008 (still works w/ 0 repairs, but it's become my test system, don't play it).
