    Ok here is a Quick Tutorial on how to Extract and Burn a Xiso...

    1.So you got a hold of a Xbox game and it came in a bunch of .rar files no worries...
    first go out and download Winrar http://www.winrar.com if you dont have it already.
    Ok after you have that open up the folder the game is in it should look like this...

    2. Now right click on the first .rar folder and then click extract to(whatever the folder is called)
    [​IMG]

    3.ok after you extract it,it will go into a folder and should look something like this
    [​IMG]

    4.Now go into the extracted folder and drag the ready to burn image onto the Desktop
    *NOTE-IF YOU TRY TO OPEN THIS .RAR FOLDER IT WILL NOT LET YOU BECAUSE IT IS AN XISO*

    5.Now you have you image all you have to do is burn it,open up ImgBurn
    http://www.imgburn.com/index.php?act=download

    thanks for the guide! i would like to chime in if i may, instead of using DVD Dycrpyter, you can also use NEro Burning Rom.

    I've just been using ImgBurn instead of DVD Decrypter. Seems to be working fine.

    I dont have a dvd burner but I know how to ftp .iso files to my xbox with qwix... is there any program that will create a .iso file and save to a my comp's hdd instead of burning it to a dvd?... or is there an easier way around this problem... can I just ftp the files over to my xbox with smart ftp or something?

    okay, Ive never had that problem but I have a game that when I try to extract it it extracts all of the contents of the game instead of making it an ISO, and when I try to make it an ISO in qwix it still wont work on the x-box, am I just stupid or how can I fix this

    yeah, I downloaded Karaoke Revolution, and it does have several .xbe files: update.xbe, downloader.xbe, default.xbe, dashupdate.xbe. So if you could tell me how to go about it I would greatly appreciate it.

    oh, and I'm not the most experienced with backing games up, so if you could please describe the process of what to do with the .xbe files in small detail it would help.

    just been looking at the last couple of posts on this thread.im having the same problem.sometimes i will download a game and its just like in your directions(winrar-extract-iso-burn-nero)no problem.but on the odd occasion i will get a game and its not a rar file its just a file with a load of mixed files in it,not an iso in site.when i try a make an iso with these files using qwix the created iso is the right size but will not load at all.most files are 01-02-03file etc,and some are sfv files.eg of download http://www.dididave.com/details.php?id=19425( sorry for my life story.thanks
