Use verbatim media for your backups. You could always use your retail copy and install it to the hard drive, then use the backup to boot the game.

Verbatim is always the best media to use
Tired of typing that yet?
Verbatim is the only brand anyone should use! They last the longest and I still haven't had a single one coaster on me yet, in 2 years!
If you're console still freezes with the Verbs, then your laser is weak and dying. You'll need to order a new one off of eBay, or pot tweak it. Pot tweaking it is really only a temp fix. but sometimes you get lucky and the temp lasts for a couple months.
