Noob here trying to back and burn 360 games. I started wxripper put in cars dvd waited for drive to read hit find magic code then saved layout. Opened layout and changed line 3 to a capitol d and saved layout. Went back in ripper and opened layout and hit the stop button. Swapped dvd out with lost planet 360 game (have top of drive off) and then hit play button waited a few seconds and hit start dump. Dump is successful with no errors get a iso file about 7.5 gigs. Next I found a copy of the ss bin file. Opened ssmerger and in the iso box inserted my iso file and in ss box enter my iso and hit merge. I get a dvd file that's about 1kb I used img burn to burn file it took about 30-45 minutes at 2.4x. When I put the game in the console it loads and says play dvd and when I hit the x button it comes up to play disc insert into an xbox 360 console. What went wrong? My drive has already been flashed

did u change you modded drive code to your origanal 1 ?? also a hotswap is when u have the game ... take ur xbox to bits go to save your real disc (like WAW)to your HDD then quickly pop out the magnet, put in the modded disc, put the magnet back into the middle and click save to HDD

When you hotswap, the DVD you use MUST be over 4.2GB. The reason is because it will only detect/read it all up to 4.2GB's. And make sure you are using the latest version of your modified DVD drive's firmware. The reason is because the modified DVD firmware removes Wave checks, Waves are basically when you try putting a Xbox 360 game into your computer or DVD player and you get a message telling you to put the game into a Xbox 360 console. Waves are also there to prevent the data on the dvd from being read unless it is a Xbox 360. Modifed firmware removes those waves and allow's you to play a burnt Xbox 360 game. If you have any more question's, feel free to ask.
