    easiest way is update XBC to 2.4. other wise there is about a 5 step process to getting the game to backup. so just update XBC and problem solved.

    cheers man
    i updated xbc and it read the game fine untill bout 50% n i got a dvd read error

    "a read error has occurred in the file system data area. If this data cannot be recovered or you choose to zero fill this section it will result in a incomplete back up".

    I selected the retry reading option and it finished like normal. I was jus woundering wen i get an error like this even though it ends up reading the disc will it affect how the backup plays at all?

    maybe this was a known issue and thats why he's already released 2.5 could be worth trying that and see how that works.

    no worries man will give that ago
    i leave xbc 2 default speed would this b a problem
    does the reading or writing speed affect the quality of the backup?

    that is very odd. I know it can be done because i have seen that game all over download sites. I have never had a problem with XBC 2.4
    But i am using a Samsung SH-D163A drive (the SATA version)
    Is your drive flashed with the latest firmware? (I think last time i checked it was Kreon V.081)

    There's only a few of us who'll preach burning at 4x. I had King Kong and Just Cause sitting on the shelf for quite awhile now. So for shits and giggles I ripped them and burnt them at 6x. They play perfect. I've finished Just Cause and am in the middle of Kong. I've had no errors what so ever. I also burnt Earth Defense at 6x with the same results.

    Do you happen to have Samsung ODD Firmware LiveUpdate installed on your PC? If so, you may want to reflash the drive with the Kreon 0.81 firmware. I had this same problem. I thought the live update wanted to upgrade the flash on my other drive, but instead it overwrote the Kreon flash. I hope you have luck with this, as I can now backup games again. Good luck!

    Hey man I had this same problem - but I switched to schtrom instead of xbc and it worked fine - give it a try at least.

    tryed schtrom n got an error half way saying an "error occurred this should happen with xbox games not xbox 360 games" (something along the lines of that) but its weird coz some games backup fine.

    this problem occurs with some games some people clean the disc and restart their pcs and it works, but if that doesnt work then use this method i used iso buster to get the isofile and use xbox back up creator to get the ss file and dmi and the other one and loaded up all 4 in ss merger then use img burn to burn on slow speed and ur back up will work
    i had to do the same thing for ghost recon advanced war fighter 1 and it works a treat
    sorry aint got much time to do a proper step by step guide on it but if you google the problem their are some good tutorials on it
    i know this method will work for people having problems with backing up crackdown and star trek and a couple of more games
