Creating the image file…

Assuming you have already downloaded and installed the software, you must run the “Xbox Backup Creator” software by finding the appropriate shortcut or menu entry. Once you have done so you will be presented with a dialogue. You now need to check that your new Kreon drive is selected in the drop-down box at the top of the window.

 

After you have selected your newly patched drive you need to select the “Read” tab. Once you have done so, select the “Complete Backup” button underneath the “Image Style” text. Once you have done that you can hit the “Start” button in the window then name your image file and select a save location that is easy to locate.

 

Once you have named your image file and clicked “Save”, being sure that your file is saved with a “.dvd” extension. You will now need to wait while your Xbox 360 game image is being created.

 

Burning the image file…

 

Burning the game image is by far the easiest part of all, assuming everything is in working order. The first thing you will need to do is click the “Write” tab in “Xbox Backup Creator” and then select your preferred burn speed in the “Select writing speed” drop-down box. The recommended writing speed is between 2.4x and 8x in order to maximize data accuracy and integrity.

 

Once you have clicked the “Write” tab and then selected your preferred burn speed, you may click the “Start” button to bring up the dialogue box that you will select your newly created .dvd image file. Select the image file you created earlier and then click the “Open” button.

 

Your .dvd image file will now begin burning to your DVD. Soon enough you will have your very own, working Xbox 360 game backup.

Be sure to back up your favourite games using my guides as soon as possible, it would be such a shame if they were damaged wouldn’t it? Enjoy your newfound Xbox 360 game backup knowledge.
