everyone that already knows how to make backups does it the same 2 ways either extreme or wxripper. none of which need to read your tutorial because we all use the same steps and processes to do the job.

nice guide but you just gathered the same info from other post and nfo file information to put it together and make a guide with your name on it.

hope you dont get bothered by me saying that for it is an honest statement and not to be meant as a flame in any way.

you put it all in 1 place for all to see at once:)


I'm not bothered at all. Your exactly right, I didn't bring any new information to the table, just compiled the information in one place to make it easier for the new guy so he dosn't have to spend 3hrs on each step searching the forums for every step and eventualality.

nice guide metaphaze i know what you mean by the searching thing, it took me forever to figure out the wxripper method, then even longer casue the paper-clip method wouldnt work with my drive, then i had crc errors, it jus took forever, this would have been very nice to have a week ago.

With the Pioneer 111D you do not need to take this apart to rip the xbox 360 game. You can just use the eject pin hole. I have 2 of these drives, and this method works perfect with both!

I've notice a few things...

The first is that with drive tools, if you extract the ss.bin more than 1 time, you won't get the exact same thing than the first time . Is that normal ??

And with wxripper, i get A LOT of CRC error, and i must change almost evry C for a D. Will it works ??

There's the new layout that o have for MLB 2K6

D19408
D1072
D109344
D1783936
J335360
C1783936
J0

My game.iso is 7 572 881 408 octets

After i've run bat360 to create a image.000, and the size is 7 838 760 960 octets.

On the dashboard, when i've put the disc in my xbox, it gaves me the exact same result than last time. It says reading, and after 3-4 minutes, it says unrecognized disc.

If i start the xbox with the game already inside, it freeze mabye 3-4 minutes on the xbox logo, it says unrecognized disc too uhh.gif wink.gif

I can't even get wxripper to install or much less ssmerger I get the same error message for both applications:


The application failed to initialize properly (0xc0000135). Click on OK to terminate the application.

I have tried to install on 3 computers and had the problem. Is there something I am doing wrong?

it doesnt install to your computer really, the exe just runs the program, your probably getting that error because you dont have .net installed.

go to the MS download center and look for .net

Yes I noticed that, doing a fc (file compare) on different dumps will show that a few bytes change each time I used getss.exe (at least it did on the game I was backing up). I found that Drive Tools was the same result/problem. I decided to merge one of those ss bins I dumped with Drive Tools anyways and the resulting backup still worked!

Could I use a ss.bin that matched the numbers it said I needed if it game from another game. My Call of Duty ss matches with what the PAL version of Prey needed would that be a waste of a disk or can I essential use that ss each time as long as it was matching?
