if you have a 78/79 drive, then you will have to wait to play XGD3 as there is no 3.0 released for those drives yet. 2.0b will not change this. (just read all the info on the hitachi drives on the main page of this site.) if you have a pre-78/79 hitachi, then you do not need 3.0 (there is none for them) because those drives do not do the ap2.5 checks. if that is the case, then possibly your discs are failing because they are truncated.

you would have to be burning your discs with an ihas or other compatible drive that is flashed with ixtreme burner max firmware to get a full properly burned (not truncated) 8.7 GB disc. try running your discs (not the iso) through abgx360 if you are not sure. there is a dropdown box at the top under Input, change that to Burned DVD.

the other possibility is that you have the incorrect drive for your xbox and it is trying to do the checks but has a drive that is unable to do so. you should open the xbox and see what drive you have inside.
