    I've backed up a few movies using dvd+r and booktype set to dvd-rom. I thought that I had read this was better than dvd-r. They all played fine in my xbox.

    Now I want to try backing up a few xbox games. Should I follow the same procedure? Does the booktype setting matter with games, or should I just use dvd-r?

    Thanks

    Booktype setting definately matters and your xbox won't read the disc if you burn dvd+r and don't have it set to dvdrom. I used to have an HP writer that would automatically set the booktype setting to dvdrom for +R disc's so I had no problems.The Plextor I have now doesn't do that and I was real pissed with all the +R game disc's that wouldn't play on my box.Now I just use -R
