How to Copy & Burn XBox 360 Games

By JonathanHuppert

Microsoft Xbox 360 consoles utilize dual-layered DVD discs that can hold up to 8.5 GB of data each. You can copy and burn your Xbox 360 games to a dual-layered DVD (DVD+DL) using freeware software from the Internet. Copying your 360 game will take about 30 minutes.

Things You'll Need

  • Computer
  • Dual-layered DVD burner
  • DVD+DL disc
  • Xbox 360 game

Step 1

Turn on your computer and open an Internet browser. Select a disc-copying program from the list in the References section (below) and download it from the developer's website. Install the program, then reboot the computer.

Step 2

Run the disc-copying program and eject the burner's disc tray. Insert an Xbox 360 game and close the tray. Click "Copy DVD to .ISO" in the program's main menu and type a title for the .ISO disc image file being created on your computer. A disc image or .ISO file is a backup of the entire DVD that can then be easily burned to a disc. Wait for the .ISO copy process to complete before continuing.

Step 3

Eject the disc tray and place a DVD+DL inside. Close the tray and click "Burn .ISO to DVD." Type a title for the DVD being burned and select the .ISO file you just created. Select a disc burn speed (Pick 1x, 2x or 4x to avoid high-speed hardware errors when burning) then click "OK." The program will create a burned backup copy of the Xbox 360 game. You can use the disc as soon as the application finishes the recording session.

Tips & Warnings

  • Do not copy Xbox 360 games you do not own. Doing so violates federal copyright law.
