    i doubt it is your drive unless the games previously worked on the xbox.

    It sounds like the way you are burning them.

    Give us a run down start to finish (from ftping to buring) of how you are making them and we will see where we can help.

    did the games USED to work?
    if so it could be a laser issue
    If they didnt it does sound like a bad iso or burn
    are you sure the media type works on your xbox dvd drive?
    try sony (oem) dvd-r I find them to work on ALL xbox drives.
    Burn the image at slow speed too.

    you need to first look at what make dvd drive you have, your friends may be different
    each xbox and indeed each brand of drive reads media differently
    iTS PROBABLY the media youre using, doesnt like your dvd drive/vice versa
    if its a thompson drive try memorex or compusa dvd-r
    (theres a lot of others this is just an example)
    philips drive sony dvd+/-r
    samsung: just about any dvd-r
