Backing up an Xbox game (not 360)

    I am trying to use CloneCD to make a backup copy of "Ghost Recon 2: Summit Strike" for the Xbox (not Xbox 360). Is CloneCD able to backup Xbox games?

    I figured it's just another DVD so why not. But it stopped after 2 gigs and said "Complete" and won't play in my Xbox. AnyDVD listed the disk as Single Layer but I thought most Xbox games were D/L?

    Webslinger pointed a past user with a similar question to an Xbox 360 link that helped 360 players with backups but it does not apply in my situation. Just for reference that link is here:
    Tutorial: How To Burn XBox360 Games

    Has anyone had any success with an Xbox back up and if so what am I missing?

    I have full versions of:
    • AnyDVD
    • CloneDVD
    • CloneCD

    I am using Single Layer HP disks. :doh:

    You'll find some guides here:

    You'll need a mod chip for your X-box (voids your warranty).

    You can burn with Clonecd instead of whatever they suggest, but that's not the hard part.

    Google is your friend-try it and you can easily discover the process is much more involved than just copying a disk.

    You will find that it is not easy and will involve modifying your xbox.

    Thanks for the replies guys.

    I stopped reading the before mentioned link when I saw it was referring to the Xbox 360.

    I had hoped I was just doing something wrong when making the backups. I'll just have to make sure my son is much more careful with the Xbox disks. I was looking for a simple solution and that does not sound like it. :disagree:

    Thanks again for the help! :rock:
