Follow This: (THIS INSTRUCTION ARE FROM A FRIEND OF MINE THAT GOT IT WORKING)

we unpack the NME-360 kit into a directory eg: c:\nme360\

we rip the game (we will call it IMAGE.000 and save it (remember where)
we get the proper SS.BIN for that game (remember where it is)

we use SS MERGER v1.6 and we insert the SS.BIN into the IMAGE.000, this
makes it compatible with the xtreme FW hacks.

so now we have IMAGE.000 Patched for xtreme hacks and we still have our
proper SS.BIN

next we move/copy the IMAGE.000 and SS.BIN into the C:\nme360\ directory

and we just run convert.bat

then we will have a GAME.ISO made after convert.bat is done.
and it should be 7.705.657.344 bytes.

my friend uses cloneCD and tells clonecd to use GAME.DVD file to burn.
I use IMGBURN and do the exact settings from the NME-360 instructions:
Imgburn, make sure that the layer breakpoint is set to 1913760)
and i set it to that select the game and burn, come back 40 mins later and
its done.
burn at 2.4x.

also some games are not ripped with the video partition, and IMGBURN doesn't
like that, it give an error after you tell it to open the GAME.ISO. if this
is the case, then use this program in the .zip attached. IMGBPATCH.ZIP put
this in your C:\NME360\ directory too.

usage is IMGBPATCH.EXE <file> eg: IMGBPATCH.EXE GAME.ISO
you will have to do this dos prompt window but some people say if you DRAG
and DROP the GAME.ISO file onto (over) the the IMGBPATCH.EXE file, it will
highlight it let go of the file and it will execute as well.

it just corrects some bytes so IMGBURN will burn it now. I have had to do
that with a couple of titles i downloaded, but they work.
--------
as far as the proper SS.BIN best to make sure where you get them, if you
ripped them with teh samsung then you are good to go. hitachi has problems.
but i had SAINTSROW DEMO come up with a different number than what was in SS
MERGER database, and i just used what i had and it worked. so if your know
your SS.BIN is good then you shouldn't worry.
---------
he uses verbatim DVD+R DL, i use imation DVD+R DL, i believe its really
RICOH01 media, i will check in the morning for the exactly signature of the
media when i put it in).



*** MINE SAID UNRECOGNIZE MEDIA*** A LOT OF PEOPLE HAVE ANOTHER MESSAGE, WE NEED TO CONFIRM WITH MESSAGE IS FOR BAD MODCHIP AND WICH IS FOR A BAD BACKUP. lET START HERE IN THIS FORUM.

**IMPORTANT FOR PIONEER 111D USERS**


If you are one of the many people that has this burner, and plan to put this modchip in, you will have to get another burner. This burner will not proper burn the image to be compatible with NME-360 modchip, yeah i now it sucks, but this is the true and it have been teste by my self and other of my friends.




Thanks..

grr.gif Holy S@#$@% i haTe went people ask the same question over and over and dont do a serch. This is going TO be my last time helping a person that does not do a serch. grr.gif

LISTEN EVERYONE:


WENT YOURE DOING THE WXRIPPER METHOD TO GET THE GAME IMAGE, YOU HAVE TO:

1. OPEN WXRIPPER WITH THE MOVIE (PREFER MORE THAN 8GB) (LORD OF THE RING ETC.ETC.)

2. FIND THE MAGIC NUMBER

3. GO TO FILE, SAVE LAYOUT

4. GO TO THAT LAYOUT OPEN IT WITH NOTEPAD (IF YOU DONT NOW HOW, DAM YOU DONT NEED TO BE DOING THIS THEN)

5. THE FIRST 3 LINES YOU SEE THERE, CHANGE THE FIRST LETTER FROM "C" TO "D"

6. SAVE THE LAYOUT

7. OPEN THE LAYOUT WITH WXRIPPER (IN FILE MENU)

8. GET THE MAGIC NUMBER AGAIN (YOU STILL HAVE THE MOVIE IN THE DRIVE)

9. STOP SPIN DRIVE

10. "HOT SWAP" (YOU BETTER NOW WHAT THIS IS)

11. START SPIN

12. DUMP THE GAME

TARANNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNN AND NOW AT THE END OF ALL YOURE STEP YOU GOT TO DO FOR NME-360 YOU ARE GOING TO HAVE THE SAME SIZE OF ISO ALL THE TIME. smile.gif smile.gif smile.gif

uhh.gif
THE KEY IS IN THE LAYOUT LAYOUT LAYOUT LAYOUT LAYOUT

Your title is now changed. Unless I missed something startling you don't decide on what new topics are created or what goes where.
Also if you want to make a topic entitled questions and answers don't start moaning when people ask obvious stuff. they are bound to when you invite it with your title.

I thought Pioneer111D was better...
Which drive is better then? Cause most people are buying the Pioneer111D cause that one should be better or something...
I have a HP DVD DL WRITER 640B...

First of all..thanks to katjausaf, myfound and nha for working to document a working backup procedure for folks with nme mods.

Here's what I have found through the 15 coasters I've managed to burn so far.

First off..my hardware mix
360 with hitachi drive (type 47) with NME 11 wire mod installed.

The burners (all with latest firmware):
HP DVD 640C burner - booktype DVD+R DL with IMGBURN, DVD-ROM with CDCLONE
Emprex DVDRW 16x burner - booktype DVD+R DL with CDCLONE or IMGBURN
Pioneer 111D - Not good at all..booktype is forced to DVD-ROM, but I've not had any luck with this drive.

The media:
Only Verbatium 2.4x DL disk.

The games:
Personal backups of Table Tennis, Prey, Rumble Roses XX, Blazing Angels..never got to DOA4 smile.gif

I can get disk that fall into 3 catagories - All original disk work fine btw.

1. Disk that boot up and show the "unreadable media" error. I believe most folks also refer to this as the "dirty disc" error. The drive appears to read the disk and try to spin up to speed, after several seconds of the 360 drive clicking and trying to read the backup it stops and displays this message. I've tried adjusting the laser resistance from 4.0K ohms all the way down to 2.6k ohms and have not been able to improve.

2. Disk that boot up and display the "to play this disc please insert it into an Xbox360. I notice these disk never really spin up really fast. I've read that this error means that you have not applied the SS correctly but that it's possible your NME mod is installed correctly.

3. Disk that produce an "open tray" error. These disk never appear to do anything..I've tried the HDD soft reset on these and nothing.

I do know how to specifically make all 3 flavors. Here's a summary:

To make a disk that falls into catagory 1 you follow the wxripper procedure (no edits to the layout), use SSmerge to verify your SS.bin is valid and use NME convert.bat to build the final game.iso file. When you burn (either imgburn or cdclone) you set the booktype to DVD-ROM (not DVD-R DL).

To make disk that fall into catagory 2 you follow the wxripper procedure (no edits to the layout), use SSmerge to verify your SS.bin is valid and use NME convert.bat to build the final game.iso file. When you burn (either imgburn or cdclone) you set the booktype to DVD+R DL (not DVD-ROM).

To make disk that fall into catagory 3 you follow the wxripper procedure editing the layer (first 3 lines have their first characters changed from C to D), use SSmerge to verify your SS.bin is valid and use NME convert.bat to build the final game.iso file. When you burn (either imgburn or cdclone) and setting the booktype to either DVD+R DL or DVD-ROM.

At this point I'm not sure what to think..I've ohmed out my mod install several times and believe it to be wired up correctly but there's no way I couldn't have at least one backup that would boot. I know I've follwed the exact procedures above and have not had any luck.

Anyways I wanted to share so we can build on the info we find. I'm not sure I'm willing to screw with this anymore till there's something more concrete or a new version of SSmerge is released. At this point I'm not sure the mod is working at all, but don't know.

If I think of anything else I'll update this message..thanks!

Kat, I can verify that one same issue with the original not working the first couple times happened to me as well but have not seen it since.

I also want to add that I don't feel one bit sorry for modding the drive. The way these drives read the disk (and rub the disk slightly making a potential coaster out of the Original) gives me all the more justification for making backups. Over time I can see rings forming around my disks without even touching the console while a disk is in. Unfortunatly I was just over the 90 day warrantee when I found this issue. Good work M$. I am another sucker.

sorry, just had to get that off my chest.

You say that the pioneer doesn't burn backups for the NME. Does anyone have any success with other burners.
