    OK.  So, hypothetically speaking of course, if I somehow had the compressed, successfully ripped files on my Mac, I would still not be able to burn them to a DVD?  
    Basically, let's skip the ripping process altogether.  If I were to obtain (through my friend, of course, hypothetically speaking again) the files he ripped, I would still not be able to burn them to DVD using my Mac?

The short answer is no.

1st reason: macs cannot deal with all the data at once and would die.
2nd reason: there is no software as of yet to rip games without having the correct kreon drive or a 360 drive plugged into a pc.
3rd reason:i dont think macs an run 360 backup creator.

I BURNED A DVDRW ON MYCPU BUT IT WONT PLAY IT ON XBOX360 OR DVD PLAYERS


If you are trying to play music, then there could be only two problems.
1. Some DVD-RW can unintentionally trick you into thinking that they can play music, if inserted into the right machine. But really what it might really mean is that it can transport music, not play it.
2. The format of the file that you burned onto the disc may not be compatible with the type of DVD-RW that you have.

If you are trying to put an actually DVD/Movie onto the disc, then it is more than likely a format problem. I imagine that it may be really hard to get a video into the correct format so that it can be played on a DVD-RW.
I assume that whatever you are putting onto the DVD-RW is completely original. If it is not (such as a movie you got offline) then copyright laws will take all happiness out of your life.

The x box says system update stopped..what has happened? how do i fix it?


Came across a link that might be of some use to you, here's what it says:

Get Updates for Your Xbox 360 Console There are three ways to get updates for your Xbox 360 console:
Update through Xbox LIVE. Copy update to a USB Flash Drive. Burn a DVD or CD. Update through Xbox LIVE
Getting the update free on Xbox LIVE is the best option because your console will be automatically updated as new system software is released.
To update your Xbox 360 console on Xbox LIVE, you must have an Xbox LIVE account with either a Gold or Silver membership, and a broadband Ethernet connection.
To update on Xbox LIVE: Connect your Xbox 360 console to your broadband connection. If your console is not connected already, see Connect to Xbox LIVE. Note Your console will be restarted when you join Xbox LIVE, so be sure to save your game progress. Create an Xbox LIVE membership or add one to your offline profile, if you haven't already. Go to the Marketplace area of the Xbox Dashboard and select Join Xbox LIVE. Follow the steps for creating a profile. You can also add an Xbox LIVE membership to an existing profile by selecting Join LIVE from the Xbox LIVE area of the Xbox Dashboard. You may be asked to update the software on your console. Select Yes and wait for the update to finish. Future updates will be installed automatically, as long as you are signed into Xbox LIVE. Copy the Update to a USB Flash Drive
If you don't have an Xbox LIVE account or have a slow Internet connection, using a USB flash drive is a good option.
Note: The USB flash drive must use the FAT32 file system.
Update using a USB flash drive:
Connect your USB flash drive to a USB port on your computer. Click here to begin downloading the update folder. Save it as "$SystemUpdate9199.zip" anywhere on your computer. Unzip the File. Copy the contents from the unzipped folder onto the root of your flash drive. Safely remove the flash drive from your computer and plug it into a USB port on your Xbox 360 console. If your console is on, turn it off, then back on. The update program will start automatically. Select Yes, update now. When you see the new dashboard, you're done. Burn a DVD or CD
Your other option is to download a file from Xbox.com and burn a DVD or CD. Use this method if you don't have your console connected to broadband, or if you use a dialup connection to the Internet. You could even do this at a friend's house who has a broadband Internet connection and a DVD or CD burner.
To create an update disc you need the following:
A DVD or CD burner. A blank, writeable DVD or CD. The update file from Xbox.com. This procedure involves burning the DVD or CD by using Microsoft Windows DVD or CD burning software. If you're using third-party CD/DVD writing software, follow the instructions for creating a data disc.
The same steps apply whether burning a CD or a DVD.
To create a DVD or CD:
Click here to begin downloading the update folder. Save it as "$SystemUpdate9199.zip" anywhere on your computer. Place a blank disc in your burner. From Windows Explorer, select Open Writable CD Folder Using Windows Explorer or open the CD drive icon. Open (double click) the zipped $SystemUpdate.zip folder and drag the contents of the zipped folder to the root of the CD Folder. If the CD write window doesn't open by default, drag and drop the folder onto the CD/DVD RW drive. Note If you are using an earlier version of Windows you will need to open the file using a separate utility (for example, WinZip). In the Explorer window, click Write files to CD from the CD writing tasks or right-click the CD/DVD RW drive and select Write these files to CD. Caution The update filename and folder structure must be intact for the update to run properly. Follow the steps in the CD wizard. When you are finished with the wizard, the CD will eject. Your CD is ready. To update the console:
Place the CD in the Xbox 360 console.
Power cycle the Xbox 360 console. The update program will start automatically. Select Yes, update now and press A. Wait for the update to complete. When the console reboots, you're done. If this does not work then you need to sand your xbox in to microsoft.
Keep Checking Daily for the new update.

Complete Xbox 360 Backup Tutorial

PORTANT NOTE:
This tutorial is outdated and no longer used.. This tutorial has only been left here for archive purposes. If you require further assistance please try our VIP ONLY forums.



Alright guys, I thought that there weren’t enough decent tutorials/guides for making backups of your Xbox 360 games, so I decided to put one together myself. I figured that after burning 13 DVD+R DL coasters that I’d be a good guy and help other people form making the same mistake, so here goes.

Required Items
Before we start lets see what we all need:
1) A DVD-drive which can be easily taken apart
2) Your original xbox360 game
3) Data/Movie DVD which is at least 8 gigabyte in size
4) Philips screwdriver to open your DVD-drive
5) Last but not least, some patience

Required Software
1) WxRipper can be found in the 360-hq Downloads area here
2) XBOX360 SS Merger v1.6 here


Table of Contents
- Part 1: Creating the image.
- Part 2: Inserting the SS.bin.
- Part 3: Burning the image successfully.

ART 1 - Creating the Image
1. Take your DVD-drive apart: First of all we need to access the laser unit of our DVD-drive, this can usually be done by removing the screws which holds it casing! You will need to figure out yourself on how to do this for your own DVD-drive .... Read More >>

Since my xbox 360 has been repaired it won't play copied dvd's


your drive is modded with special firmware(software). What happens eventually is the laser is going out on the DVD-drive. When a DVD is burned on a computer it is not as readable as a DVD is that is produced in large factories that Microsoft use to make 360 games. So you should be able to play 360 games you buy fine and some burned games but not all of them. Replacing the laser is hard. A temporary solution would be to burn your games at a slow speed like 2.4x or even 1x.

My 360 reads games as dvds


Hi

Do you have a mod chip in your xbox? is this a modded unit?

Are you using backups? Are these original Xbox cames.

If you are using copies, self burned games or backups. You are most likely using the wrong type of disc, you need to use DVD dual layer +R NOT the -R

Having Problems Burning Xbox 360 Games


You have to modify the firmware of your DVD drive to allow for this. It voids your warranty and is very complicated. It involves taking apart your xbox360.

Are you allowed to and if yea how do u burn 360 disc to an blank c.d ???


U can't burn games to a cd, it has to be a DVD+R DL. If U meant DVD, google xtreme firmware for the 360. This is for toshiba/samsung drives only. Hitachi drives can be altered as-well but i'm unfamiliar as to how. If you 360 has a BenQ or Phillips drive i think your S.O.L.
