    I am in a weird situation:


    Recently, my friend gave me a copy of Mortal Kombat to play. It forced me to update my dashboard, which I did, but it worked.

    My friend usually handles all the modding stuff, but I didn't want to bother my friend with modding stuff anymore, so I got my hands on a copy of Dynasty Warriors 7. But after I burnt it to a Verbatim DVD+ DL, my XBOX360 indicated that "the disc was unreadable". I've read all the tutorials, and stickies, but I haven't been able to identify my problem.

    Mortal Kombat (the new one) works, but Dynasty Warriors 7 does not.
    I checked using ABG and found that Dynasty Warriors 7 is PAL, as is my XBOX360 console.
    So what exactly am I doing wrong?

    Is it the firmware (of which I have no idea what version I am on)?
    Or did I not burn the disc properly?


    Information that I have no idea whether or not is useful:
    My XBOX360 is PAL
    Dynasty Warriors 7 is PAL
    I use an "activate" disc before I am able to play a game.
    I have a Lite-ON XBOX360 drive
    I used a Verbatim DVD+R DL disc for Dynasty Warriors 7
    Mortal Kombat runs fine.
    I am on the newest dashboard.
    I got my console modded before or just when Gears of War 2 came out.
    I have no idea what firmware I am on.


    Thanks in advance.

    I don't use XBL and since flashing is so complicated, I thought probably best if I stick to the Wave Patcher.

    So I patched the game, which was Wave 11, down to Wave 3.
    I then burnt it to the Verbatim DVD+R DL but when I put it in, the XBOX360 was stuck on "reading disc". I put something else in and the console read it immediately.

    I threw the post-patched .iso file into ABGx360 and this stuff came up:

    Is it safe for me to burn it now? Or was this simply a burn error and I should just try to burn again? I caught a glimpse of Imgburn and it told me that it was forced to burn at around 4x instead of my preferred 2.8x.

    Did some searching and I stumbled across this:
    Video_BA47FD12.iso

    Apparently I need it for Wave 3 games. I'll give it a try now and see if it works.



    edit.

    No I'm still clueless.
    I ran it through ABGx first, and now through WavesPatcher.
    It is on Wave 3 now.
    Should I just try burning again?


    Just to retrace my steps:
    Ran through ABGx, everything is.. successful. Reverted the iso file back to Wave 11.
    Ran through WavesPatcher, changed from Wave 11 to Wave 3.

    Did I miss anything? Should I just try burning again?

    try updating your fw to the latest one...
    the latest version alows games to be booted without a wave disk or activate.iso

    I figured out my problem.
    I didn't layer break my disc properly when I used ImgBurn!

    Now it works, I can play without the activate.iso.

    Thanks for help.

    It's odd that the .dvd file wasn't automatically setting your layer break(that's actualy all it does). You should have a .iso file and an identical .dvd file in the same folder(abgx360 creates a .dvd file if you don't have one). When you burn the disc you choose the .dvd file and boom layer break.
