    Did you flash your xbox with a new bios?

    You mean using the switch? That really doesn't mean it's flashed.

    Also, how are you making the backups?

    i can push the power button 1sec quick it boots normal using normal bios. i can push it for 2 sec long and it boots in aladdin bios(chip boot). with aladdin bios appears a evo X icon in the left of the screen. the games i burnt only work from cd and dvd games i burn on the same way just with alcohol 120%. but my Xbox always say when i insert a backedup game or copy it says cant recognize disc...
    the same is when i insert a movie(not burned but bought) so illegal doesnt work too. but that should work with a chip. i don't have a dvd kit. so i don't still get what's wrong. it only boots games on cd. that wouldn't boot without modchip.

    o yeah i forgot. i don't make the backups i dl them using eMule. every game i dl almost works. i always did it for the dreamcast and almost always worked. and now for the Xbox and it fails to recognize the games on dvd. so i geas it insn't the backup. and i have 5 dvd games and all don't work on my Xbox. and i can't test them couse i don't know anybody with a modded Xbox.

    i've called the guy that did my Xbox he said it depends on your dvd drive and you may need dvd-r and i burned them on +r but now i have another problem i want to burn these +r to -r only i can't copy them because i only have my dvd recorder and a cd recorder so i don't have 2 dvd drives. how do i make a good backup from these dvd's

    Yeah it's probably the media you're using. I use +R, but the drives are different so try using -R
