    hey everyone , just wanted to let you guys know, i just ripped and burned gow3, slapped it into the xbox and everything worked of course...after like 5 mins, i got an error from xbox saying that my game failed to be authorized...followed by an update from xbox live...this must be new as it literally just happened about 5 mins ago. Not sure what is going on, just wanted to make everyone aware, i am sure some info will surface soon

    So what exactly happened? You got the error, then you had to download an update from Xbox Live? Then what? Could you still carry on playing?

    Thanks for the info BTW!

    It would say you were banned if you were. Doubt it.

    Does game still work for you? MS are going to have something up their sleeves to prevent LT2.0 from working as it should. Gears 3 is a big online game. They're not just going to let it be that simple.

    I don't want to yell fire in a crowded theater however the same thing just happened to me but slightly different. Game update popped up right off the bat, I accepted it, my game failed to be authorized then xbox shut off... My xbox is not banned because I rebooted and checked BBC2 and I know for a fact that I burned game disk correctly...

    In ImgBurn set the layer break to 2,086,912 and burn the ISO and you will not get the error according to this guy or use CloneCD

    I have not flashed my 360 to LT 2.0 yet neither have burned the game but I will try this weekend.

    Sorry to go slightly off-topic, but why hasn't Gears of War 3 or any other XGD3 game been put onto AGBX's verified list yet? LT+2.0 has been out for days. I wonder if this has anything to do with it?

    i am not sure what it is, i ave tried everything now, tried burning wit clonecd, imgburn, at 2.4x and 4x, i also read on a different forum that the answer is to copy game to hdd, even did that and it still gives me the error. i am using verbs, a brand new burner, i even ripped my original disc with a benq and 0800 v3. i am going to try and clear the cache on the xbox and maybe try booting with no hdd connected at all and see what i come up with, will keep you posted

    That's fair enough, but even so surely it should be up on AGBX so we can verify it ourselves?

    well after more testing, with no hdd, the game plays perfectly fine, when i connect the hdd, get failed to authorize disc, maybe a bad rip? does everyone who rips games with 0800 f/w always read at the highest speeds? maybe slower would be better for m,e? we shall see.

    ya i was burning at 4x with verbs to. i think it is the xbox live update, i cleared all te cache on my hdd and i disconnected my wifi and the game boots up plays with no problems...as soon as i connect to live, it asks me to download the update and all of a sudden i get the failed to authorize again...maybe there is vital info in the last 1.7% of te disc? not to sure, hopefully maybe there is just a bug in something that will get fixed...
