Before trying to mod my xbox 360 I did my best to do my research, I downloaded the ixtreme 1.4 firmware, bought the Verbatim DVD+R DL's everyone stresses are so important... I even went out and bought a Pioneer DVR-112D so I would have a good burner...

But even after all that I still get unplayable disc errors after trying to backup 2 separate games... Ive tried Imgburn, Xbox backup creator and clonecd and have made about 10 coasters with not a single playable game.. I've tried restoring and reflashing and still can't seem to get anywhere.... *sigh* Any idea what I could be doing wrong? Getting desperate

make sure the disks are made in singapour, the others are worse than the cheap media.

if they are id do as the post above me suggests and do the pot tweak, or order a new laser on fleabay they go for between $5 - $15.

are your originals failing to boot, or just the backups? after you ripped the games with XBC, did you run any of the stealth checks to make sure everything auto-patched itself properly?
