    Hi all!

    So first of all I want to say that i have flashed (LT-3) xbox 360 and I burn all of my game on a NON-Liteon hard drive. Now some games work and some don't.

    For example Fifa 15, Fifa 16, Fifa 17, Batman - Arkham City, Borderlands 2 are working but many other games don't like Shadow of Mordor, Dishonored, Dragon Age - Inquisition etc...

    Now I tried burning XDG3 games with and without BurnerMAX and here's the thing.

    -When I burn game without BurnerMax, after I install game od HDD i can start game but after 5-10 mins I get error and it returns me into dashboard (I can install game on HDD)
    -When I burn game using BurnerMax, when I press play screen just turn black for a moment and it brings me back to dashboard every time, so basiclly i'm not even able to run game and also when i press X button, there is no option to install game like there is when I burn game without using BurnerMAX.

    NOTE:- I've tried burning games without BurnerMAX and after installing game turning on music from USB and start game but that only worked for me with Borderlands 2 and Batman - Arham City, other games still get error after few mins of playing)

    Anyway after Fifa 15 was released I 1st burned it using BurnerMAX and tried to play it and it happened same thing as with all other games when I try that method so I took sec DVD(verbatims only) and burned game without BurnerMAX and I installed game and start it but after 1st match I got error and I turned off my XBOX and wanted to cry a little but then I got an idea. Now that game is installed with DVD without BurnerMAX, I tried to put DVD that was burned WITH BurnerMAX and game started and I could play it for as long as I wanted without any error what so ever. That worked for all 3 Fifa games I mention earlier (latest one Fifa 17 i burned last week). It works perfectly.

    Now my question is why some games work like that and some don't?

    Why some games work when I burn them without BurnerMAX and run them using music (Borderlands 2, Batman) and other don't?

    And why some games like Fifa work when i burn them both ways and with one DVD I install game and with other run it perfectlly fine but that with other games don't work?

    Sorry for long post guys, hope you can help and explain. :)

    Yes and still same thing.. Borderlands 2 and Fifa 16 is patched and it worked, Fifa 15 and 17 and Batman weren't and worked too..Dishonored didn't work with or without patch, other games I didn't even try to burn without patch,all patched, none work..

    That's not a good reason.
    A kprobe test ensures you have a quality backup.

    If you follow this tutorial, there shouldn't be any problem with your discs at all.

    But I still don't get it, how are some game still playeable even tho i burned then with that option unchecked?

    Anyway, ty man, I will try to burn something with this option checked..Also idk if you noticed but i don't have ihas burner,it's hp CDDVDW SH-216BB drive..Or it doesn't matter what drive it is, that option should be checked for 003 dvd-s?

    XGD2 games can be burned on pretty much any DVD burner.
    XGD3 games need a iHAS or Burner Max payload tool compatible drive
    The Burner max compatible or iHAS drives give the best results for both disc formats.

    Those settings should work perfectly.
    Toss out the coasters, their worthless besides making a DVD wall ;p

    Well, you could use them as actual coasters (that's what the word came from)
    Coasters are badly burned CD/DVDs.
