    So I just softmodded my Xbox with Splinter Cell and did all that good stuff. I can play legitimate games no problem but I cant seem to get burned games to work. I boot into the softmodded menu and when I put my burned game in and hit Launch DVD (Ive tried a couple like GTA San Andreas and NFL 2K4) it will display the title like it's going to boot but then it kicks me back into the softmodded menu. What's strange is that I can rip the game to the hard drive just fine using DVD2Xbox. I don't have a big HDD yet though so continuing to do that isn't an option for me.

    I use Verbatim DVD-R and I burned the ISO through IMGBurn at 4x which is the lowest speed my drive will burn.

    Am I missing something here? Do I need to install something extra in addition to the softmod? Am I burning the game wrong? Please help me out here as I can't find anything else like this online.
    Thank you in advance.

    It works just fine, I just played through the entirety of a real copy of Shenmue 2 on it and have messed around with Splinter Cell and Halo 2 for a bit. It wont even boot these burned games, but like I said above I can rip them and play the rips just fine.

    Thomson drives are picky.

    can confirm that thompson drive are picky with burned disc. same disc worked fine on my hitachi but would not work on thompson.

    i was using a verbatim dvd+rw so it is possible that the thompson drive doesn't like verbatim disc you could try a different brand.
