    I have some games that have been ripped to my hard drive via dvd2xbox. Is there a way of grabbing that data and making a BOOTABLE iso file to play in anotherof my xboxes?
    to re-cap i have data ripped from orig disk and saved on one of my xbox drives,i can easily make a iso from that data but how do i make it BOOTABLE.
    Cheers

    yes, there is no other way to back up a game then to take data from a disc and make it into an ISO. (well not unless you have a special DVD-Rom drive from Samsung that is)

    1. learn what FTP is and how to set it up and use it, and get FLashFXP
    2. get a program called Qwix
    3. Use FlashFXP program to transfer all the files from your hard drive to your PC into a folder you make for it, then use Qwix to turn that folder into an ISO (you select the whole folder that contains the game files)

    Obviously i do not have appeared to explained well enough.
    1. I have the data that was ripped from dvd2xbox on a pc hard drive it amounts to nearly 200gig.
    2.My xbox has a 8 gig drive so i need to burn the data from the PC to a BOOTABLE .iso.
    3. As quoted before i can EASILY MAKE A .iso of any of the games but they will not be bootable.
    4. HOW DO I MAKE THE .iso BOOTABLE

    How many games is that then?

    It isn't steimy who isn't explaining things clearly my friend..

    the maximum size for an xbox iso is as much as will fit on a single layer disk. 4.3 GB, you can't make a 200GB iso, not a bootable one because there isn't any media large enough to load and burn a file like that..

    Sounds to me like all you need to do is read the stickied "how to back up xbox" that are all over these forums.

    An xbox game iso (an xiso.. different from a normal one, and needs specialised software to make) is by it's very nature bootable when burned on a disk.

    oh, also. Is your Xbox softmodded or chipped?
    If it is chipped then the easiest way is to get a compatible 400GB HDD, slap it into the Xbox, Format it with Slayer 2.7, Install apps and dashboards with Slayer 2.7
    then just FTP all those games (or data or whatever it is) over to a hard drive large enough to hold it.
    If it is softmodded the process to prepare the new drive is a bit more involved.

    basically 200GB of info would be 50 or more games. So you are going to have to make each individual game into it's own ISO file and copy it to it's own DVD. That is about the only way you are going to get working back up copies of all of those games.
    I suggest Verbatim 8X DVD-R as your media
