How to Burn an Xbox 360 Backup

While there is a stigma that goes along with making copies of games, backing up video games which cost upwards of $ 60 is not only practical, it’s easy. Let’s face it, discs scratch, break, chip, and just downright come up missing. Should we be forced to invest all over again for a few seconds of carelessness? I say no and with today’s homebrew community pushing forward to make running custom software on burnt media possible, you don’t have to. While I won’t go into how to back up games with this article, I will go over the steps needed to make a copy once you have an .ISO file.

First and foremost you’ll need to modify your Xbox 360 to run homebrew software. Doing this isn’t as daunting as it sounds but it will void your warranty. If this is a problem for you, maybe you should try GameFly. If this isn’t an issue for you hop over to XboxScene for more info on making this happen. Once you’ve modified your Xbox 360 and obtained an .ISO file, it’s time to get started. You’ll want to make sure you are using quality burning media. For 360 games you’ll need Dual Layer DVD’s. These are not the same as DVD-R or DVD+R and you’ll need to make sure that they say DVD-DL on them. I’ve always found Verbatim to be top notched and have yet to see one fail me. While I’ve also never had a problem with Memorex. I’ve heard reports of people burning coaster after coaster and earlier failing when archiving discs. Next up is downloading the program Imgburn. Either hit up imgburn.com or do a quick google search for imgburn to get this amazing freeware. Once installed you need to go into the settings and change the layer break setting to L0 = 1913760. What this does is tell the program where to create the layer break on the disc. This layer break is the area which the Xbox 360 checks to make sure a disc is authentic. Changing the layer break to 1913760 creates this authenticity. Nice!

From this point on it’s pretty smooth sailing. Open the file you’d like to backup, or the .dvd file if one is available. Adjust the burn speed of the disc you’re using to less than it’s maximum ability. Some people say this isn’t necessary, but I’ve always dropped it down to as slow as I can bear(usually 2.4x) and have never had a bad disc burn. Leaving your discs at 8x or better may work for you or it may not, I just know that I don’t want to drop my disc in and have it not work and have to re-wait for the burn. Your disc is now ready to be burned but just to be safe verify that your layer break setting is correct and click burn.
