I tried burning it on my laptop, like I said. It works. I get the 97% error and Dark Souls, GoW3 and Space Marine alla working fine.

The truncate method is correct and the setting you should use, but overburn will work too. Basically, the ISO is 180ish MB too large to fit on the disc, so ImgBurn has 2 options – overburn or truncate.

You can’t overburn on a DVD+R DL, so if you choose the overburn option, the burn will fail at around the 97% mark as the disc simply runs out of space. That’s when you must manually choose to finalise the burned disc and even though it’ll tell you that the burn failed, the game will still work in your 360.

The truncate option simply says “burn as much of the data as will fit on the disc”, so ImgBurn will burn the 97% that fits and once the disc is full, it will finalise it and say that the burn was successful.

Either way, the actual burn is identical, it’s just that if you choose the truncate option you no longer have to click through various error messages to burn your ISO.

As for the guy that can’t burn slower than 4X, that’s normal with many newer drives. Your burner’s firmware has write strategies stored in it for various disc types. When you insert a disc, the burner will effectively say “OK, we can burn this disc at 4X, 6X or 8X” and those are the speeds you’ll be offered. If you try and force it to burn any slower, 2.4X for example, ImgBurn will just say “write speed mismatch” and change 2.4X to 4X as that’s the slowest supported speed with those particular discs on your particular drive.

i hab more success with cloneCD, intenso blanks and OVERBURN(!) This is working great for me. ImgBurn burned disks have failed, installing and loading. This is working great, because intenso’s have > 214000 Sectors on L0 :D So you can overburn using CloneCD (very sad ImgBurn doesnt have that feature :/) ”

I just bought these Intenso DRV+R DL, no way to overburn them with CloneCD or ImgBurn, I don’t see more sectors on them.

How did you do that, can you explain ?
