    Hi,

    I have a kreon dvd burner which i use to burn backups of my original xbox games :).
    I am getting a new liteon ihas324 and then will flash with software to allow xgd3 games to be run.
    But if i burn a xgd3 game now using the correct guide will it work no worries when i get my xbox 36o updated to ixtreme LT2.0?

    Thanks

    As long as you don't care about Xbox LIVE it should work fine. I burned Rage for a friend before I got my liteon ihas124b and it worked fine for him (he's on a banned 360 with LT 2.0). Haven't tested out the new burner yet since I'm waiting for something other than the Halo Reach beta to be verified in the new XGD3 format.

    If your old drive supports DL burns, then you are fine. Burn it with a truncated burn, not an overburn and you'll be fine if you're offline.

    When going online you will want a 100% burn but offline XGD3 burns are fine if they are truncated.

    I've been playing everyone online XGD3 with truncated discs so far and I'm fine. You just have to be careful and know at somepoint you will be banned so just play like it's your last day.

    If the game have CIV check and it fails due to a truncated burn, it may get an error in the game. If you fail a check online or offline, I'm sure MS will know when you go online.

    Like dilav said: certain games which are truncated might not work. Forza 4 has CIV checks which would fail if the whole game wasn't burnt. Which in truncated situations it is not.

    If you want a full XGD3 to play online you will need iHAS B drive, iXtreme LT MAX fw, and LT 2.0 FW on your xbox 360.
