Hey, was wondering if the new xdg3 format games are considered safe on live right now. I am on the newest dash 13604 with lt 2.0. Games r made with the ihas124b with burner max firmware with no errors using imgburn. I know there is always a risk and the previous burn method wasnt safe. Is this new method considered as safe on live as stealthing the xdg2 format games and going online with them? I have had no problems since the lt firmware 1st came out and didn’t want any other issues come up. Thnx.

c4e said they are “safe as any other backup”. as long as you are sure your iso was a good rip, there should be no reason why any xgd3 games burned to 100% with Burner Max fw would fail any checks. the only issue would be if your drive has problems reading certain discs. for example memorex don’t work well in samsung drives. did you try to verify your discs? i never bothered until the xgd3 games, and i had one game burn successfully but not pass verification, so just burning with no errors isn’t a good way to be sure. i would say try to install your games also before booting, even if you just delete the install later. that way you can be sure your xbox has no problems reading the disc all the way through.

Yeah, I did verify them with imgburn and was completed with no errors. It did install to the hd fine, so I guess all is good then, at least til the new system update. Hopefully abgx will get updated soon with these new games as I always felt safe running them thru there. Thnx for the help.

I am sorry if this is a dumb question or already been answered when lt+ 2.0 comes out for Hitachi will it be able to read 0800 rip games?
Thank you in advance

Of course it will read 0800 (XGD3 games), that’s the whole purpose of Lt+ 2.0

Hey, put the hacked firmware on my liteon with burner max that allows me to burn the memorex brand at 2.4 on imgburn. I get it to burn and verify at 100% with no I/O errors, but when I go back and look at the imgburn log for the burn session I have a few yellow flags that says failed to write a few sectors or something along those lines. I can install the game to the hd though. Kinda worried about that.

I can take the same iso and use verbatim on imgburn at 4 speed and it gives me a 100% burn and verify with no errors logged in the imgburn log. Wonder if the memorex burns will b safe or not since they did burn and verify all the way and could install on the hd? Any thoughts? Wanna stay with memorex if possible since they are more affordable, but not at the cost of getting flagged.

try using KProbe on your memorex burns… if they are way above the suggested numbers they just might not be that good to use for xgd3. (i have used memorex for xgd2 for a long time with no problems, except in Samsung drives.) if they are pretty close i’d say go for it, especially if they install to hdd with no problems. what exactly do the yellow flags say? sometimes when i am running programs while burning i get messages saying that it is waiting for the computer to not be busy anymore, but it always continues, and plays just fine. (never scanned or verified an xgd2) i never had flags with xgd3 however because i have been closing everything except imgburn when i do those, since they have the highest risk of errors.

K. Will check that program out and get the info from the logs and post back.

After burning several coasters with memorex on gears 3 tried it with verbatim and it worked fine with no errors at all. Some of the memorex burns worked fine when others didn’t. I am going to just start using verbatims from now on. Tried the hacked firmware with memorex to burn at 2.4 and messed around with the settings. Spent a lot of time reading and trying different things only to have about 50/50 of good burns with memorex on the xdg3 format. Verbatims for me from now on. Thanks for the helpful info quick.

Does anyone know if it is good to play Forza Motorsport 4 yet with the newest fw on xbl?
