Hey guys,

Got myself a softmodded original Xbox:
Dash: XBMC 2.0.1
HDD: Factory
DVD: Phillips J5 3235C FW: S32M

Homebrew games on DVD-R play just great. I found a port of PC version of Panzer Dragoon. Works 100%.

Messed up thing is backups won't play. I've tried several different games. The Box reads the default.xbe and recognizes the game but I get the Dirty Disc Error every time I try to load them.

I always use DVD-R. DVD+R spin endlessly for some reason.
Burn at 2X
DAO

Tried using Qwix to rebuild the images and then burn them, get the DDE.
Tried just making a data DVD with the same structure as the .iso, same shit.

Don't have a big enough HDD to ftp files or rip games.
Don't want to do the pot tweak because it's not my Xbox

What's going on here? Should I just try with a different Xbox?
