    I have an xbox 360 with xecuter blaster360 installed and i flashed my samsung m25 or m28 i cant remember. When i burned my backup games and play them on the xbox, they do one of the following:

    Take forever to read the disc.

    When it does recognize the disc that is in there it starts the game up but then shuts off because it says that it cant read the disc.

    A few times it says to put in an xbox 360 disc.

    Now when i put the disc in i can hear the drive as though it is trying to read the disc but then you can hear the disc slow down and the drive to stop reading the disc which results in causing an error when the game starts up. I have tried my original non-backup discs and they work with no problem. I have also used 2 different types of DVD+R DL discs. I have also tried burning different games to see if there was a specific game that was messing it up, but it wasnt. A couple of times i have been able to play the games for no longer than 5 minutes but that is all i can get out of them b4 the drive tries to stop reading the disc.

    Any suggestions?

    What type of media are you using for backups?
    Does it read original xbox games?
    It displays all the symptoms of a bad laser to me.
    A pot tweak could work but more than often doesnt

    Thats more than likely your problem. I know those are probably cheap to buy but cheap says it all. If you dont want any trouble buy the verbatim dvd dl discs.

    If you are stubborn and dont want to do that try pot tweaking your laser slightly. That may make them work again.

    I get the same problem with Verbatim discs, I'll try recalibrating the pots though.

    well i just found out that it is not the discs that are the problem. It is still not reading the discs correctly. So what else might be the problem?

    like labeling the disc with a cd cover or printing to the disc kind of thing.

    well labels will put your disc way off balance and will cause that error to. That was my problem and it took a while but then i got lazy and stopped putting labels on..... and guess what all of my games played as originals would. So then i ripped all the labels off of the games that wouldn't work and now I have Great games that are labelessss
