I have been copying games to my hard drive from the X-Box and then creating ISO images with xISO.exe. The image is created sucessfully, the game boots but then when I try to load something off of it I get an error message stating that the disk may be dirty.

I have tried 2 Blank DVD-R's and a Blank DVD+RW with no success. I have also tried images of more then one game. (Games work fine when I copy them back to my HD????)

ISO's that I download and burn from the newsgroups work great! Has to be something I am doing? blink.gif

I am using a Sony DVD RW DRU-500A

Any ideas what might be causing the problem.

Thanks for your help,

-Ed

i always burn games to a dvd-rw first. then mess around with all the menus, etc....then if no locks up or anything...write same image to dvd-r. otherwise...erase dvd-rw and try to redo image...don't waste dvd-rs that way smile.gif

I've had great success as well with DVD-RWs. I highly recommend using them while you test out new ways of burning your games.

Unlike CD-RWs which when they first came out had a high rate of failure in all drives but the ones that burned them, I've found DVD-RWs are very reliable on the XBOX.

I will admit when I buy DVD-RWs I usually buy just a couple and spend extra to get higher quality ones and then try and buy cheap DVD-Rs, which may account for my success, but anyway, yes, use DVD-RWs until you get the combination right.

Ditto that. In addition, I also have had great success with Optodisc DVD-RWs.

I don't think I ever used ISOmaker in any of it's sub-1.2 incarnations, but that may not be the problem. It's normal for the command-window to disappear. However, this will happen both when the image is created successfully and when the process fails. Are you running Win9X? If not, what OS and what file system? If you're creating a game over ~4GB on a FAT32 partition, the process will crap out immediately when it hits that ceiling, and the ISO file won't remain. On a FAT16 partition, this happens at the 2GB barrier.
