X360 ISO Hacker... The known Mac DVD burners can not set the Layer Break. If you try to burn a not hacked ISO image, it will not work on XBox360. This utility solves this problem with a little trick. It appends 0s to end of ISO image. After hacking, you can burn your ISO file with Burn application.

I tested the ISOs with Toast Titanium, but it always cancel burning randomly with Hardware error. Tested more than 5 ISO image, burned by Burn.app and every game is starting on XBox360.

I have burned over 40 disc with no problems. very simple, just download and extract all downloaded files, hack the iso file with x360iso hacker, then run iso file through abgx 360gui and burn it with x360iso hacker. Works like a charm.

Works great- ON A MODDED xbox360.
I tried it on a non modded xbox and wrote a review that was inaccurate- so this is my fix of that

I am surprised MacUpdate is hosting this but hey...

If you have a modded xbox360 (check http://360mods.net for more information), you can use this application to burn the DVD DL for the game. Note you should only use this program to create a backup of a game you already have... Dont pirate games!!! P-)

If you dont have a modded console, this program will not work for you, if you are not into modding pass this one...

Otherwise it works as advertised. Its free so don't bitch about it either.

I tried it out on Halo 3-
no luck
lot of wasted money on a DVD DL
My xbox isn't modded- which I am pretty sure it isn't supposed to be, I used a legit .iso
all it is giving me is a "Play DVD" option right now on the xbox360 and is only playing the "insert this into an xbox to be played" video, even though it is IN the xbox.

If the developer would be willing to help me, I'd be perfectly willing to change my rating...
otherwise, I'm really sorry but I don't think I'm doing anything wrong.

Silly, of course you need a modded 360. This app will not work unless your 360 is flashed with a custom firmware.

Works great! I had about 60+ successful burns.

To the first post... There should be a law that forbids morons like you from reviewing a product...

The reason why the burns not work for you is because you dont have a modded 360. For more information on how to mod your 360 go to http://360mods.net

Mamao!

gee- didn't get that from the first guy- who stated it MUCH nicer.
the developer didn't say a word about needing a modded xbox- that's not my fault.
i'll write another review since so many people are now saying it works.

Gee-

Don't you think the title of the application gives ya kind of that idea? Should the author be blamed because you didn't do your own investigation??? Do you assume a lot? Do you realize everytime you assume you make a... you get the idea...

j/k

The reason why I wrote a strong rebuttal to your "review" was because it wasn't fair to the product. You simply gave it a 1 star, because after burning your games you figured... "gee, maybe I need a modded Xbox360... why didn't I think of that earlier...", it pissed you off and you thought, "That stupid n00b didn't tell me I had to haxor my firmware on my 3600 l33t".

In other words you weren't objective. Its not the Author's responsibility to explain to you how life works, in order for you to use his free product.

Had you detailed other things in your review, like ease of use, or compatibility, or how it works with Tiger or Leopard, or how it did the job or didnt do the job it is advertised on doing, and based on that if the application sucked you could have given it a 1 star review.

At this point, FYI there is a new version 2h (since the one here is WAAAAY too old, and the author hasnt actualized macupdate) You can get it from: http://tinyurl.com/df6o9r

Now in my opinion, considering this application only burns your DVD's but doesnt verifies the image or the stealth hack in the DVD's I would suggest OSx360 for Mac which you can get from: http://tinyurl.com/ddqksq

When you write an objective review I will complement your review but you are getting a level of critic based on the level of your own review. If you don't like it dont post it... but otherwise don't trash software because you didnt have the IQ to figure what to do with it.

Yeah- you're right- I also assumed I could change my review later though. ;).
I put another review up to help it a bit- but it didn't help a lot.
:-/ now I feel bad.

Ok, this might be a moronic question, but do you need a modded xbox to play the discs once you burn them or will they run on a standard 360?

App quit / crash when you try to copy Original Game DVD.
Other known bug: App crash when the DVD has special Read error. This is an OSX bug, if you try rip your DVD via Terminal with dd command, you will get same result. DD will also crash.

I had a lot of hope for this application because of all the good reviews but it didn't work for me. It says it can't rip games because they are 'original' and when I found a few copied games to rip it crashed half way through every time. I really want this program to be good, please fix :)

i have 0.2g, with the same result. It crash after creating the iso and asks to quit, relaunch etc. I close the app and use iBurn360 to burn the iso at 4x, and so far no problems with the game. i did have one game freeze, but that just may be the product of the dvd flash/hack
