Easiest Way To Burn Not Listed?
Posted 15 June 2004 - 11:56 PM
now i havent tried this, but the person that assisted me in installing my chip, showed me a process that takes much less time.
1. flash FXP to box and rip all files to one directory.
2. burn using recordNOW under data mode, changing the only options to "128 character file length" and "closed session"
3. loading the game into the xbox and playing it.
NOW IM NOT SAYING ANYTHING BAD ABOUT THE LONG WAY...
just wondering why someone would choose that over a much simpler process.
please let me know, as im still trying to learn as much as i can.

|How is this any different than the process described as burning in UDF format?|
And also, how is this easier than just using Qwix to create an ISO straight from the game disc and burning that ISO? UDF used to be a step shorter, but not any longer.

The difference should only be about 20%. Something else is wrong in your case.
Also UDF is fully PC readable, which means a PC DVD reader can take advantage of subchannel CRC information in case that there is a block error.
When you've scratched a disk or it gets old, this is a BIG deal.
With UDF you stand a very good chance of recovering the game/data intact.
I've done this with several disks unreadable on the Xbox (which did before...).
That feature alone gives UDF a big advantage, even if it is slower.
If you do like I do and copy a backup to the Xbox's HDD when it's "up" on the list of games in current play, then UDF load speeds are not an issue.
If you are trying to play off DVD's it's another matter altogether though.

That's not what he was discussing.
For HP use DVD2Xbox .58 with the ACL's or Avalaunch.

Actually it depends ENTIRELY on the game, namely the file layout thereof. Some games could run exactly the same with UDF vs. GDF ISO. Other games could take several minutes to load when created using UDF whereas it might only take 5 sec to load when created with a GDF ISO.

Opjose, do you burn as UDF or UDF/ISO? And what is the difference between these two formats as far as the xbox is concerned? I actually burned in UDF/ISO and realized that I probably should do it as UDF. But the UDF/ISO format works fine.
