Alright so I have an LT 3.0 drive and have burned and run many XGD3 games successfully using the truncate option while connected to Live. Earlier tonight I burned Forza 4 using the same method because I didn’t know about the problems other have had getting the full 100% on the disk without the iHas burner which I don’t have. Anyways, I ran the game and it crashed after a couple of minutes (I didn’t realize at the time it was because only 98% of the data was on the disk) and I restarted and tried again several times. After a while I installed the game on my HDD and received an ‘unauthorized disk’ error and I panicked because I was connected to Live at the time. I deleted the game from my HDD and ran my serial through XVAL and it said I was clean but I wasn’t sure how long it would even take for XVAL to detect if I was flagged or not.

At this point I started looking up this problem with Forza 4 online and found many other users that experienced similar issues but couldn’t find if anyone had been banned from Live due to being flagged for the unauthorized disk error. I remember the big scare when XGD3 was first released and many people thought they were flagged for ban but Microsoft decided not to do anything because legit users were affected by the same issues and I was wondering if I might be safe even after this mistake.

Any insight would be a big help because I couldn’t find a definitive answer online which is why I posted here. Regardless I’ve learned my lesson and will be order an iHas burner ASAP. Thanks!

i don’t really see what you are asking… you seemed to have solved your own problem by buying an ihas. xval is only flagged when failing an AP2.5 check, which would happen if you didn’t have proper topology data on your disc. it flags the xval immediately. the unauthorized disc error is from failing a CIV (content integrity verification) check. in other words it knows you don’t have a full 100% copy. i doubt you will get banned, as you said even retail discs were having this issue.

Ok great thanks so much! Sorry I wasn’t a little more clear, I was just worried that failing a CIV would lead to my ban like an AP2.5 check but I’m glad it’s not! I will be much more careful with those burns from now on.

Getting an UN-Authorised disk error is a SERIOUS flag mate! it shuts the system down and upon restart the error is logged, to late to be worrying about whether it’s going to lead to a ban, and it doesn’t matter if you are online or off! it still gets logged on your system.

ALL M$ titles will have CIV data protection on them. iHas every M$ title for piece of mind and safety..
