Download ImgBurn here:
www.imgburn.com/index.php?act=download

General Instruction:
Always run the ISO of the game you want to burn on ABGX360 to ensure that your ISO is fine and not corrupted

Click the search icon under "Source" and browse then open the ".dvd" file of the game you want to burn.
Under "Destination", select the DVD drive that you want to use for burning your game.
Choose either 2.4x or 4x as your write speed (whichever is supported by your media and drive).
Uncheck "Verify" box




I really don't configure the I/O settings but you may.
This is the suggested settings if you get I/O error on 40 - 50 % when burning XGD3 games on non Lite-On drive.



Close all unneeded programs and never run 'HEAVY' softwares while burning because it can highly affect your burn
Go to "Tools" then click "Settings" on the drop-down list





I. XGD2 GAMES

For XGD2 Games, copy my settings below and click "Ok" to save changes.



There is no need for BurnerMAX Payload tool or flashed DVD burner (i.e. iHAS B Revision ) to burn XGD2 games, which means any dual-layer burner can burn them successfully.

II. XGD3 GAMES

A. Truncating and Overburning XGD3 Games:

This is for people without compatible DVD drive for BurnerMAX Payload Tool, a DVD drive flashed with BurnerMAX firmware or Sony Optiarc 5280S-CB Plus
Copy my settings below and click "Ok" to save changes.



First, there will be an alert box, asking if you want to use BurnerMAX Payload Tool since there's no enough space to burn the game.

Click "No" since you'll be truncating or overburning your game.



Another alert box will pop-out, this time it will ask you if you want to truncate or overburn the game

Truncate method were formerly recommended but because new games tends to give "Unrecognized" / "Unreadable" disc error when being truncated, overburn became more reliable than truncate method for 2013 games.

I would only recommend truncate method if you'll be burning 2011 and 2012 XGD3 games
(except for Kingdom Of Amalur: Reckoning and Hitman Absolution since they give issues if truncated)





Again, for 2013 games, it is highly recommended to choose "Overburn"



Another alert box will pop-out either you choose Truncate or Overburn.

Just click "No" to this, because we are going to use the layer break we set awhile ago which is "2086912".



Again, another alert box will pop-out saying that our layer break is not allowed.

Just click "Yes" to this since we really want to use our user specified layer break




If you chose "Overburn", you will get an I/O error when you reach 97% and you'll see that there are 20 retries on the ImgBurn log,

Just click "Cancel" on this pop-up to get to the finalizing disc



Choose "Yes" if asked to try and perform "Close Track / Session / Disc" functions



Settings below will help you get rid of all the alert box above (except for I/O error in overburn). This is great for those who always truncate or overburn their games and don't use BurnerMAX Payload Tool. Also this settings won't affect XGD2 burns.



B. For BurnerMAX Payload Tool

It is highly recommended that you use Verbatim for successful burning and for longer disc readability since non-verbatim or cheap discs may not work with BurnerMAX Payload Tool.
Copy my settings below and click "Ok" to save changes.



If you have a Lite-On DVD Drive, go to "Change Advanced Settings"



Go to Lite-On tab then:

Enable Force HyperTuning
Disable Online HyperTuning
Disable OverSpeed
Enable SmartBurn
Do not Clear OPC History



You can also go here if you want a thorough tutorial on how to burn XGD3 games using BurnerMAX payload tool:

thegamescene.boards.net/thread/4/burnermax-payload-tool-drive-compatibility

C. For Flashed iHAS and Cross-Flashed DVD Burner

Again like BurnerMAX Payload Tool, it is highly recommended that you use Verbatim for successful burning and for longer disc readability if you'll be burning the full image of XGD3.
This setting may also work with disc that has UMEDISC DL1-064 MID because it is the one I'm using before.
Copy my settings below and click "Ok" to save changes.



Go to "Change Advanced Settings"



Go to Lite-On tab then:

Enable Force HyperTuning
Disable Online HyperTuning
Disable OverSpeed
Enable SmartBurn
Clear OPC History
