    i tried to backup one of my badly damaged xbox cds

    this was before i knew anything about xiso and xbox having diferent format than pc

    here is the lowdown

    i popped my game in the dvd-writer and made an image with nero

    then i burnt the image with nero

    alcohol cudn't detect it wonder why it didn't give me any options when trying to burn so i couldn't burn it

    anyway

    nero burnt the image fine but when i put it in the xbox it didn't play obviously

    now is there anyway i cud still salvage the nero image

    If you knew there was a difference between the two formats, why did you put the game in your writer?????

    It wont work that way, the nero image is useless.

    i didn't know anything about xiso's than
    i thought it was a normal dvd i didn't even bother to check the contents using explorer

    but now after reading xbox scene and after dawn forums i am a bit wiser

    but im sure there should be some way to retrieve the data becuz it shows the same size as it were an xiso image

    also one more question can xbox standard dvd handle dvd-rws its a shame that i have to waste expensive dvd-rs just to test if it works

    what if i switched the dvdrom to my writer or another dvdrom taht i have

    No it doesn't. It only shows the size of an xiso image if you have the xiso. It won't show the actual files from the disc just by popping it in.

    You just made a statement saying you were a bit wiser after reading at different forums. So if this is true you should know that switching your xbox dvd rom drive won't work. Windows won't recognize it.

    first things first

    i meant changing the dvdrom in the xbox to my dvd-rw so the xbox can read my dvd-rw discs

    second...
    as long as i made an image of the xbox disc data regardless that windows can read it or not....
    i should be able to convert it so that xbox can play it
    becuz how can the disc be 2.0 odd gb and yet have nothing in it

    im sure there must be a program somwhere that can convert the nero image into an xiso image

    after all, the data is still in the image or disc its just unrecognizable by windows and the xbox...all we need is change it so xbox can read the data

    anyway thanks for your help guyz

    There isn't a program that can do it, although it probably can be done. But why even go through the hassle? There's a lot of programs out there that can do it instead of trying to convert Nero to make an xISO.
