i think he was referring compatible as 'the orginal games and files' and not supposed to be compatible to "dixv, backups, etc"

what I don't understand is how you actually get the game to fit on the CDR.

Most games are what, 3-4 gigabytes, right?

Well, it's probably more in the vicinity of 1.5g. There are some that are bigger. There are also some that a way smaller, though. And, then there's techniques like downsampling or ripping, of course. #

And for the record: even (some) non-modified, stock Philips drives can play (some) CD-Rs. You just need to experiment a bit; also be sure to know exactly what media you're testing. Trying rebranded stuff that is based on the same dye probably won't help too much.

I'd assume that they would be only backing up the games that are smaller than 700mb. There are a number of Xbox games that are small enough to fit on a cd-r (and some games even leave room to spare on a cd-r!). Samsung drives are helllla tight!

Yes most games are 3-4gb but some aren't and some can be split up to run on multiple cd-r's.

nope, to my amazement there are alot of games that will fit on a CDR. Seems as if they've jus wasted the space on the DVD's dry.gif .

Say WHAT? I always burn my romsemu's to no-name CD-R and they always work. Also Kill.Switch works off a CD-R. Just try burning at a slower speed. Like 4x works good.

So slower speed helps? Cause i cant get a cdr to work, thoug i only tried one brand. And i got no mods done to my xbox yet, but is it still possible to listen or cdr audio?
