Ok this will be my last post on backing up 360 games as absolutely no-one on here seems to be able to help and my problem seems to be isolated. I am doing everything by the book, I use a Pioneer 111D with latest firmware, a Samsung SHD162C with latest Kreon firmware, Verbatim DL discs, XBox backup creator/Schtrom/Imageburn at 2.4x & 4x, I have a 360 flashed to 5.2a, all my backups work fine that my mate did for me (he has now moved abroad!) and yet all of my backups using the above freeze at either the first loading screen or one of the first cutscenes. All burn 100%, all are verified, all load up fine. What the hell could it be, because right now I am completely stumped.
