I found all of the versions of xdvdmulleter on bins if I am not mistaken, plus I tried a couple of other sources. I originally wanted to use xdvdmulleter to try to make a working backup of my burnout disk (if I am not mistaken xdvdmulleter has a function to place certain information on certain places on a dvd disk therefore ensuring more compatibility (think interleave and also software possibly timing the arrival of certain general information and effectively triggering a time-out of sorts, in this case a "dirty or damaged disk error" (and sometimes more speed) for backed up xbox software (before recording / burning)). It turns out that I have fixed that problem recently. No copies of my burnout disk worked until I used boxplorer to copy the files off of my original burnout (burnout 1 - the original) to my e:\ hard drive partition (a particular folder on it that is) and for some reason that let's me play burnout from my original hard drive BUT all previous copying from the original failed (and I used the popular evolution x dashboard to ftp software on a pc method previous to my recent success with boxplorer). I don't know what the difference maker is but it appears boxplorer is better than ftp software on a pc as far as compatibility goes. I can even ftp from the xbox hard drive to the pc (i.e. copy from the xbox hard drive burnout folder to the pc) the burnout files boxplorer originally copied to the xbox hard drive (xbox 1 here) and then record that onto a dvd disk and burnout works fine still (no more dirty or damaged disk errors any where in the game - even those that previously appeared in the same old spots in the game every time) (although dvd-rom recordable disk access is a lot slower than the original AND seems to require some button pushing to advance through a lot of disk access in order to make playing the game practical), so go figure - I can't figure it out unless the media id is important, OR boxplorer duplicates all file / folder attributes and if the ftp software on the pc doesnít, OR my original copy of burnout has it's information (interleave) optimized and the previous copies didnít, AND the burnout copies that work now don't need xbe patched at all apparently and MIGHT make the copy less useable in this case. I am happy I am able to play burnout perfectly from the hard drive and hopefully if I ever run into the issue of playing from dvd-rom recordable disks being slow with disk access I will have a better plan figured out. I find it bizarre I can't use xdvdmulleter from any of my pces but sometimes coincidences happen and I have heard supposedly true stories of freak coincidences with software / hardware before (in general). If you flip a coin enough you will get 5 heads up in a row in my opinion (I know that the rules of chance are conflicting in this regard but it's my experience 5 heads will come up eventually so to speak (figuratively speaking). Thanks - and let's hope I get to properly run xdvdmulleter sometime!
