OK, first attempts at this and I am getting very frustrated!! I have read the forums, educated myself to the best of my grey matters ability and still have problems that are not mentioned on these forums. I have now backed up 5 of my games using mainly Schtrom & XBC & Imageburn and they all have the same symptoms. The games burn to 100%, they verify against the image, they pass stealth checks, they boot up on my 360 and when we get to the first loading screen prior to gameplay they freeze. I have other purchased backups that work fine so what am I doing wrong. I have a 360 with 4.2a firmware and sammy drive Samsung SH-D162C with Kreon 0.81 used externally via usb with my Acer notebook with LG GSA-4082N DVD DL writer for burning. I use Verbatim x2.4 DL media PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE, any help would be GREATLY appreciated.
