The actual layerbreak for XGD3 ISOs is 2133520. However, when burning
XGD3 ISOs to regular DVD+R DL, ImgBurn will automatically reposition/
limit the layerbreak to 2086912 in accordance with the disc’s maximum
Layer 0 data zone capacity (2,086,912 [LBA: 0 - 2086911]). The LT-MAX
feature in LT+ v2.0 will compensate for this and allow you to play
XGD3 backups with this wrong layerbreak, and therefore wrong game
partition data PSN locations.
also this is how we burn them
INSTRUCTIONS FOR BURNING XGD3 BACKUPS WITH IMGBURN
We recommended that you use the latest version of ImgBurn (v188.8.131.52
at the time of writing, downloadable at
The Official ImgBurn Website). Older versions may
handle this process differently and/or give a different set of
Although it is set by default in ImgBurn, please ensure that under
Tools > Settings > Write, you have “Layer Break (For DL Media)” set
to “Calculate Optimal”.
Please ensure that the layerbreak is set as 2133520 in the .dvd file.
If you already have the XGD2 (or other) layerbreak value set in
ImgBurn, the .dvd of the XGD3 ISO will override that setting and use
the proper layerbreak.
As mentioned above, ImgBurn will automatically reposition/limit the
layerbreak to 2086912 when burning to regular DVD+R DL discs.
Please see the included imgburn-xgd3-errors.png image for screenshots
of the errors you’ll encounter in ImgBurn and what to click on in
each dialog that pops up.
Step by Step:
1. Choose “Write image file to disc”, and after loading the .dvd
file, click “Write”.
2. ImgBurn will pop up a notice saying that there is not enough
space on the disc to burn the image, and asks if you would like to
continue anyway. Click “Yes”.
3. Another message might pop up saying that optimal layerbreak
position exceeds L0 capacity. Click “Yes”.
4. An error will then pop up noting that “Set L0 Data Zone
Capacity Failed”. Click “Continue”.
5. The image will begin writing to the disc.
6. Nearing the end of the write process, ImgBurn will pop up an
error at around 97% or 98% (this is what we want — it’s
intentional!). Click “Cancel”.
7. A notice will then pop up asking if you would like ImgBurn to
try and perform the “‘Close Track/Session/Disc’ functions”. Click
8. Let the disc finalize, and you’re done!

[2011-10-01 12:48AM UTC] #fw <[Eric]> c4eva is the nfo file written by rrod a pretty good assessment on the current situation?
[2011-10-01 12:51AM UTC] #fw <c4eva> eric:dont agree with it,no
[2011-10-01 12:52AM UTC] #fw <Ellidor> c4eva so the nfo written by RRoD is wrong
[2011-10-01 12:53AM UTC] #fw <c4eva> its not from me
[2011-10-01 12:58AM UTC] #fw <mr1000> hey c4eva are the xgd3 back ups safe? because gears 3 nfo is saying no?
[2011-10-01 12:58AM UTC] #fw <c4eva> nfo is wrong
Hiya, i understand the imgburn part of the thread but how to you set the layerbreak value in the .dvd file. i have always created the file through abgx.
i just flashed my console with LT+2.0 and burned GOW3 with this way you wrote here already and i lost the disc your method didn't work and stop posting such bullshit if you not sure if it really worked .
Please guys don't burn the game with this way !!! the burning will fail at the 97% and the xbox will detect the disc as game and if you push Y for game details it won't work and if you push the A to play on the disc it will show black screen and disconnect from live 2 seconds then connect again and back to dashboard only .
