    you don't even need it.

    Get IMGburn
    Manually set the layer break
    tools-->settings-->write-->layer break. Check user specified and set it to 1913760. Click ok and burn as normal. This is only necessary the first time burning a 360 game

    Set the booktype to DVD-Rom for all DVD+R DL discs if your burner can do it

    then burn it like you would any other 360 game.

    The DVD file only tells your burner about 2 things, they layer break (which is always the same). What the ISO file name is (which you already know as it is right there). and that is really it.

    either one, it makes no difference other then you manually setting the layer break if you use IMGburn and the ISO.

    Either way you are burning the same file (ISO), The DVD file is not burned, it is just a very small text file that tells the burner how to burn the ISO. Open a DVD file with notepad and you will see how little information is in it.

    a coaster means a bad burn like a game or dvd or cd burned bad/wrong and it dont work...
    then all you can use it for is a "Coaster"

    the word coaster just simply means error on game disc right? and it 's not playable. well i heard rumors saying that memrox dvd+r DL cause the len in the xbox 360 drive to die out quicker, is this true? and is this what they mean by coaster? just wanna straigten few things out. thanks for the info.

    just give it a couple of months and see if you still think that memorex dvds will not affect your laser.

    Put in the original game and play it and see how hard the drive is working and then put in your memorex backup and listen to it.

    Please trust people when they tell you about Memorex (Memosux) discs. It has been a know fact they they are not good media for a long time now. You can see it in about any PS2 or Xbox back up section.

    They may work now but trust me, you are just asking for trouble.

    1. Open Imgburn
    2. Click Tools, then settings, then the write option
    3. Click Layer Break Options for DL media
    4. Click User Specified
    5. Type 1913760 in the blank sectors box
    6. Click please select a file and find the .dvd file that is 20-40 bytes in size (move cursor over the icon gather size information
    7.On the bottom right click write speed and change to 4x
    8. Finally click the big file to dvd button on the bottom left corner
    9. If you choose to verify the burn after completion you will get several errors, just hit cancel and as long as the burn is a 100% it will work even if Imgburn thinks it will not
