threads on hardware / software to use for a working backup are getting out of hand and need to be centralized, please use these instead of making new threads.

There are a couple already made, but its been a while and there are newer firmwares available and now seems to be a good time to begin a new thread.

Let me start each of these thread by saying YOU CANNOT GO WRONG PURCHASING VERBATIM DVD+R DL DISCS!
they are currently the best discs available for 360 backups, flat out.

you can get them fairly cheap, sometimes as low as $1.50 a disk in packs of 10-30.

any other media you use, may work for you at first, but dont be surprised to see a dirty disc error in the future.
store brands, off brands, etc.)

anyways, lets try and keep this thread clean, stating what works in the same format.

(I am putting this in both hitatchi and samsung threads as an example, please keep it as clean as you can with what works.)

Working bakcups made with:
DVD firmware: Xtreme firmware for TS-H943 (old release with 0800 disc)
Burner NEC 111-D
App Clone CD
Media VERBATIM DVD+R DL
Method ISO buster
Speed 2.4x and 8x both working

Hitachi 3120L 46D Flashed with Birdy Flasher using Xtreme 2.0
Games: Burnout Revenge, Quake 4, Dead rising
Method: wxRipper and SS Merger 1.3
Burner/drive to make copes: LG GSA 4166B with booktype setting support
app: clone cd
resuls: burnout...........working, quake 4........when ever it wants, doesnīt boot all the time,
and dead rising is dead.....it boots to black screen or either dirty disc error.

As far as I know I canīt make xtreme type backups with this drive, since it canīt unlock game files,
and itīs the reason why iīm using wxripper.

Correct me If iīm wrong, but if I can make backups using this xbox drive, please point me out, iīve used
the search button and google so much without luck.

thx.

The stores close to me only sell Memorex too... go to Newegg.com

You can get a 20 pack of Verbatim for $39.99.
Heres the thing, the Disks were burned perfectly fine. It reads as Xbox360 Disk on my pc... if i double click on it on my PC, it opens up in WMP telling me to put it in a 360 console to play... so it really has nothing to do with my burner's FW.

It has to do with how fussy the DVD-Rom drive in the 360 is.

I don't think jesterrace is saying that media other than Verbatim will not work... he was just responding to the post that said "with the 111-D drive, any form of media works." I wish it were true cause I could just go for pure price, but thats simply not the case, as I unfortunately found out.

I'd be interested to see if anyone has had any issues with Verbatim on the 111-D. So far from what I've read, its worked all the time.


There are those who unfortunately cannot get Verbatim to work. There is no such thing as 100% compatible media no matter what the application. However, they are still by far the most versatile D/L media on the market. You are correct that I am not stating that other media will not work, I was merely pointing out that the guy who posted that anything works on the Pioneer 111D is making a HUGE ASSumption. Plenty of evidence here that supports that other media is not as compatible as the Verbatim and as I have been trying to point out, there are precious few here who are thinking about the long term consequences of using such media (ie error rate scans, ect). That being said, if you do live in North America there are plenty of excellent sales on Verbatim media that often bring them down to the point where there either isn't much difference in price between them and the cheap quality stuff or in some cases that they are even cheaper (usually some form of rebate involved though). I got a 20 pack from newegg about 3 weeks ago that was $31 shipped (roughly $1.55 a disc) and there was a $10 MIR on top of that, works out to $1.05 a disc after rebate. I can't even get POS D/L media for that cheap. For those who live overseas the Verbatim cause isn't completely hopeless. Most in Europe are able to order from http://www.svp.co.uk. 10 packs of Verbatim for 14 pounds (including VAT). I know there are cheaper options for D/L media but it's still not that bad when you factor in everything that I have mentioned.
