    Do a search, I know i've seen posts on this subject. something along the lines of removing movies and the like. Somewhere I read about rip packs for individual games to combat the size barrier on a case-by-case basis.

    Just buy a dual layer burner and the dual layer discs. I use alcohol and sometimes dvd decryptor to burn the .mds file image that Alcohol creates.

    samuels, you get better help in the xbox forum. Secondly, to play a duel layer backup, you must have a mod chip that will play it.
