That being said, if you are considering burning a backup copy of your Xbox 360 game for protection, you need to have at least some understanding of how the game is compiled and how to play burned Xbox 360 games.
Most players just want to enjoy playing their game. Being computer scientists is not always something they feel compelled to do to better understand how the game is created. That being said, if you’re considering burning a backup copy of your Xbox 360 game for protection.
How can I play burned games on my Xbox 360?
Xbox 360 games, and many others for that matter, are burned in a special way, which is called Dual layer. This dual storage technology is the main reason why it’s hard to learn how to burn and play Xbox 360 games. Dual-disc DVDs have two layers for data recording. Microsoft began using dual-layer technology to record its games. A layer, called an ISO file, contains all the data needed to determine the game. This is a game program. The DVD file, on the other hand, is a set of instructions that tells the DVD burner how to copy ISO data correctly to a DVD disc. Are you with me so far?
In order to make clean copies of game discs, you must have both of these files, which can be downloaded from your original game disc or downloaded from the web. (The download option is illegal, so do not.)
Once you have access to these two files, it’s very easy to learn how to burn and play Xbox 360 games. You will need to open a DVD file and make a copy of the “Break Stock” number for that file. This track is very important because it instructs your computer where to stop recording the first layer of DVD and start recording the second. Copying numbers is easy. Use only the CTRL-C trick.
Can you play burned games on an Xbox 360?
Once you have done that, you will need to download a program called imgBurn. This is an excellent DVD copying tool. After installing the imgBurn software, run and open the SETTINGS tab and find the STOCK BREAK section. Paste the number you copied above, where indicated. Now the software knows where the layers are separated.
When it’s done, you’re almost there. Select imgBurns BURN from the selected image and then select ISO file to burn to DVD. This burning process usually takes about three quarters of an hour, depending on the complexity of the game being burned. When the process is complete, you will have a backup copy of the new game that can be played on your Xbox 360 and PSP system, even if it is an original disc. You have now protected your original game and can play the game without fear of damaging it.
This simple method of burning games is completely legal when used to back up your game to protect your investment. Just do not be arrogant and start making free copies for your friends, or try to get rich selling them. That, my friend, is illegal and could give you some time in jail. Not a good idea.
