Default DVD Rom Drive won't read xbox backups properly

sponsored links

 
My DVD rom drive in my PC only recognises my Xbox games as 4.6G (or something) This is when I know games are much smaller, between 2 + 3 mostly.
Is there any way I could get my DVD rom drive to read the exact size of the Xbox game.
Thanx

Are you talking about an xbox backup on dvdr? Then go to prassi, right click on the drive and choose extract iso. Then it should tell you the size of what the image should be. Or you can put the disc in your xbox, go to boxplorer, choose the d drive, select all, and choose the file size option.

You are doing a backup of a backup right? I have done the same thing since my xbox dvd drive is media picky (Philips doesn't like princos). I use the Alcohol 120% program. Go to a search engine and type in Alcohol 120% program and you should have no trouble locating it. You can download a free trial version of it and see if it works for you. I use my dvd burner to read it to the harddrive (but I don't see why it shouldn't work for your DVD-Rom drive to read it) and then write it back to the dvd burner. I have done this with a few games and the new backups on Ritek DVD-R and Fujifilm DVD-R work perfectly.
