imgBurn is a freeware tool which allows you to burn all sorts of CDs, DVDs and Blu-Ray discs. It works for PC CDs, music CDs and even Xbox 360 games, and here’s how to burn your 360 games with it.
Before you can burn any Xbox 360 game, you first need to get the ISO and DVD files that will be used to burn the disc. These files are crucial and can either be ripped off your game CD or downloaded from the Internet. After you have the ISO and .DVD file for the game you want to burn, you then need to install imgBurn on your system. This is pretty simple and the software can be downloaded from imgburn.com.
Once you have the software installed, you then need to open up the .dvd file for your game. In there, there will be a LAYER BREAK number, which you need to copy to your clip board with CRTL+C. Copy it and then open up imgBurn and find the “options” panel at the top of the screen. Open up the options Window and then find the “layer break” setting, where you will then need to paste that number with CRTL+V.
After you’ve pasted the layer break number into the settings, you can close them and return to the imgburn main screen (the layer break is where the burner stops burning one layer and moves onto the next layer of the dual layer DVD). On the main screen, you then need to click the “Burn From Image” button, which will then open a new screen, which will prompt you to open an ISO file. Open the game file that you have and then proceed to change the ‘write speed’ of the program to 4X. This will give the highest success rate. After that, you just need to click on the big button on the bottom left of the screen to get it to burn.
Most computers will take around 40 minutes to burn the game, but if you’ve done it right, it should end and be successful. This means that you now have an Xbox game burnt onto a blank DVD, congratulations! However, in order to play the game, you need to do some other things to your PC and console which aren’t much, but are crucial.
