    OK, first attempts at this and I am getting very frustrated!! I have read the forums, educated myself to the best of my grey matters ability and still have problems that are not mentioned on these forums.

    I have now backed up 5 of my games using mainly Schtrom & XBC & Imageburn and they all have the same symptoms. The games burn to 100%, they verify against the image, they pass stealth checks, they boot up on my 360 and when we get to the first loading screen prior to gameplay they freeze. I have other purchased backups that work fine so what am I doing wrong.

    I have a 360 with 4.2a firmware and sammy drive
    Samsung SH-D162C with Kreon 0.81 used externally via usb with my
    Acer notebook with LG GSA-4082N DVD DL writer for burning.
    I use Verbatim x2.4 DL media

    PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE, any help would be GREATLY appreciated.

    I'd upgrade to Xtreme 5.2a and burn those Verbatims at 4x if I were you.

    I have used Xbox back up creator (XBC), I think my firmware may actually be 5.2a how do I check? I doubt the firmware is the problem as I already use back ups of old and new games on the console and they are fine.

    Why does burning at a higher speed likely to remove the freezing problem, is the higher speed less likely to cause burn issues?

    And I have 2.4's which work just as good as some 4x's on MY 360... but cause an open tray error on another ms25 I flashed. The 4x's work perfect on that one. So now I burn everything at 4x. It's a win-win... the burns play perfect and I cut the burning time by 20 minutes.

    Burn one at 4x.

    I think we're like the only 2 people that preach this. People never listen though.
