    Hi Y'all

    I have a chipped xbox with evox and a stardard xbox Harddrive. I have just downloaded an xbox game iso file (2Gb).

    I would like to know how to burn the iso file onto DVD so it will work on my xbox. I have burned it twice with Nero but it didn't work on xbox.

    I have already got a DVD R/RW. using Traxdata DVD+R 4xspeed 4.7Gb

    What programs do i need to use, and how to use them.

    Many thx

    N Barber

    You should burn the ISO file with DVD Decrypter... Always burn the ISO files at the slowest speed possible 1X-2X... The CD Formats that I use are RiDATA DVD-R.... Alot of DVD+R CDs don't work well with burning xbox games.

    Also if you look at the Tutorial on how to burn games it will give you instructions on how to burn games with DVD Decrypter.

    Cheers,
    Matt.

    Would it matter if i was a dual layer DVD?

    also.... i heard from another thread that you would have to create an xiso file from the iso

    If the game is over 4.7GB yeah I would suggest getting a dual-layered DVD (but since their ten bucks a pop) I would suggest first to delete the movies/xbox live files from the the ripped files, then create that into an ISO and that should be able to fit on a 4.7GB cd. As for the xiso stuff... Not sure.

    Its probably the disc media type (Never heard of DATAWRITE, RiDATA is the cheapest and best CD-R to burn xbox games with) that's giving you trouble... Did you patch the game perhaps with qwix before you burned?

    Are you getting an I/O error after when you try to burn?

    The .iso you downloaded is problably not an Xiso..an Xiso is an iso that the xbox reads...so what you do is find a program that reads .iso...ex. WinISo..ok then dump all of those files into a folder... then use Xiso to make an iso that is readable with an xbox. then just use nero and it will work....

    the whole 'burn at the slowest speeds' thing is more or less relative to your machine and burning methods. I have never had a problem with a 'backup' and the slowest I've ever gone was 4x. Anyways,if you feel safer going at 1x-2x,then so be it. If you are having alot of problems with speeds and things of that nature,why not try out alcohol120%...since it has a larger buffer than nero. (128MB>80MB)

    Most of the time when there's a problem with burning a game,it's probably the media itself...and not the method. Once you find a brand of media that works for you...good idea is to stick with it.

    yup, i used qwix to extract iso into a folder eg. xbox. then applied the patch to the .xbe files. then create an xiso with extracted files. finally burn xiso using nero 6 at max speed.

    doesn't matter wat DVD make you use. i managed to get it working with my cheap ass Traxdata DVD-R's

    gd luck

    use Xiso 1.1.5 to browes your extract folders for the .xbe file (ALL OF THEM) apply to all .xbe files(they should be located in the main folder. then it should work

    Iv only burned one game, burnout revenge, but will try another soon as i have downloaded it. try and get hold of a DVD-WR disc handy for wen it doesn't work.... seeing as i wasted 4 DVD's be4 hand, lol. keep tryin, it took me a week to figure out exactly how to crack it!

    You will need a program called Qwix. this will convert your iso into xiso. but..... to make sure you are successful you will need to extract the iso. download another program: Xiso 1.1.5.

    *there is a guide on how to use these programs, just search on google*

    you will need to extract the files into a new folder e.g create one on your desktop. i names mine 'xbox'. anyway, after waitin for about 5 mins it would have extracted all files into that folder.

    Now you will need to patch 'all' the .xbe files located in your extraction folder. use xiso 1.1.5 to patch them. i think you go to > tools > patches > retail patch .xbe. then locate your .xbe files to patch.

    After patching, you will need to exit 'xiso', and then open 'qwix'. once you'v opened qwix you should click on the 'create xiso' button. (easy to spot), then you will have to 'create an xiso from located folders & files'. simply locate and highlight the folder your extract is in. then click ok. It will ask you where you would like to save your xiso. Save it in the same folder as the extraction.

    It will now create your xiso, wait 4 a while.... then use nero 6 to burn the xiso you created onto 'DVD-WR'. burning at 4x speed is ok.


    Sorry if thats abit long winded. it should work though. if not messege me bak.

    P.S I was typing this during a college class. there might be a few mistakes lol :p
