By: Drew Samson

Xbox 360 boasts of hard-hitting games in its console. It has some of the best games around including top-selling Call of duty 2, Ghost recon advanced warfare, the elder scrolls IV: Oblivion, Dead or Alive 4, Saints row, Gears of war and above all Halo3. There are lots more of titles available on the internet also.

The games have breath-taking graphics and heart pounding action which makes you play them again and again. But Microsoft xbox 360 is causing lot of trouble on game discs like scratches due to malfunction of several dvd-drives. So, you need a backup for your own copy.

Here's a quick guide on how to do it:

Requirements:

1) A dvd-drive which can be easily taken apart

2) Your xbox360 game

3) Data/Movie dvd which is at least 8gigabyte in size

4) Philips screwdriver to open your dvd-drive

5) WxRipper can be found @

6) Optional: Wx360 which can be found @

7) Last but not least, some patience

1: Take your dvd-drive apart

First, we need to access the laser unit of our dvd-drive, this can usually be done by removing the screws which holds it casing.

2: Installing your dvd-drive

The hardest part is over now and we should now connect our dvd-drive to the computer and place it on an easy accessible place.

3: WxRipper

By now you should have extracted both files mentioned earlier and have them installed on your computer, and then run WxRipper.

a) Put your dvd in the drive which is over 8 gigabyte and wait until your computer recognizes it.

b) From the menu select Hotswap and then "Find magic number".

c) After the magic number has been found you select "Stop drive".

d) Now comes the magic part, you need to switch the dvd which is in your drive with your original game.

Warning: this needs to be done without pressing the eject button!!

e) When everything is back in place you can select "spin drive"

f) When the drive is spinning again then it is time to dump the image. Clicking on "start dump" can do this

g) You can take a break now as this stage can take a long time depending on the read speed of your DVD drive.

h) After it's done, you have now dumped your xbox360 game.

- The dumped image is an exact RAW copy of the original game disc, which means any dummy data is copied with this.

- You can now burn this .iso file to an empty dvd-r dl.

With this you can now play your favorite game over and over again without the fear that the disc will be damaged.
