You could patch your firmware using media patch 2 or tap your eject button twice just after you hear chirp chirp bhhuhhhhhhhh.....It gives your backup more time to boot before timing out

I had the same experience. Its the burner... I tried a few that i had. It didnt work. Run to the store, get a Pioneer DVR-710= 111D. your all set.
Others use a media patch for there drive. Up to you which route to go.

Try these tricks:
What to Try if Backups Donít Boot:
Thanks to Penfolduk
Use Garyopas method firstÖpress the eject button when you get the Open Tray message.
1.Insert a backup that you know was burned correctly in your 360 and power off.
2.Power on,wait for fanfare/ring of light to finish.
3.Flick the HDTV switch on the video cable and the soft reset this causes will allow the backup to boot. You can in fact do anything that will soft reset the 360.
If you donít have an HD video cable with the switch, but have a hard drive:
1.Remove hard drive.
2.Insert a backup that you know was burned correctly in your 360 and power off.
3.Power on,wait for fanfare/ring of light to finish.
4.Slap the hard drive back on-game now boots
You may also want to try a different burner (I know you said 'except' but it really could be the prob).

So if i try the mediapatch method may my backup actually work?where can i get it and how do i patch the latest 2.1 fw with it?
Sep 10 2006, 05:28 PM

BTW, Try this oen too:http://forums.xbox-scene.com/index.php?showtopic=522506

i tried that too but nuthin,has this mediapatch actually helped people like can it make backups burnt with drives that are said to not burn correctly work?
who is using the hitach drive i got?

If you've tried all the above with no luck your only options are:-
Flash your drive with Birdy_Hitachi-LG_friendly_Flasher_v2.2_with_Xtreme_v1.3_and_2.0 mediacheck2_FIXED
(which might work)
Or buy a nice shiney pioneer 111d
(which I'm sure will work)

I have a Hit/LG 46dh and I flashed it with the birdy with mediacheck stated above. Anyway I have a NEC 3500a/g burner and burned two backups in a row with (this drive that is not supposed to work) but does just fine for me

This should probably be moved to the backup forum. For future reference, there is a forum for help flashing the firmware, and there is a forum for help after the firmware has been flashed with ripping/backups/ss, etc.
Flash with mediapatch v2 , wait until Gary's next fw package, or buy a Pioneer drive. (which is exactly what bazza007 just told you)

Amazingly it worked thanks alot!!!bazza007 and everyone else all backups work perfect and they boot without any gay tricks so this proves birdy kicks the hole
