    Do I use Overburn or Truncate when using imgburn to burn XGD3 games?

    I am a little confused between using Overburn or Truncate when burning XGD3 games by using the latest version of Imgburn.

    To burn XGD3 XBox 360 games, I am using the latest version of Imgburn, which is v2.5.7.0. I set the settings as recommended by this forum and others when burning XGD3 ISO's into a 2.4x Verbatim DVD+R DL disc. Now I do have a Lite-On iHAS 324-XX B DVD drive which has the iXtreme Burner Max firmware installed in it. In the imgburn settings that I am using, under the Write tab (Page 1), I have the "Perform OPC Before Write" option un-checked and the "Enable BURN-Proof" checked because once again, I am burning XGD3 ISO's onto 2.4x Verbatim DVD+R DL discs with the burn speed set to 2.4x. For the Layer Break (For DVD+R DL Media) option, I have the "Calculate Optimal" option checked. I do know that the Layer Break for XGD3 games is 2133520, therefore I have that set under the "User Specified" option. However, I do not have the "User Specified" option checked, therefore, the layer break 2133520 is grayed out. On page 2 under the Write tab, I noticed that the Default Overburning Method is automatically set to "Overburn", not "Truncate". My question is, do I need to set it to "Truncate" or leave it as "Overburn"? or it does not matter which one I use because the iHAS 324-XX B DVD drive that I am using will burn the XGD3 game to 8.7 GB since the DVD drive has the iXtreme Burner Max firmware installed in it? May someone please let me know as soon as possible about my question. Thanks.

    neither, the burnermax fw automatically bypasses both and writes 100% of the iso to the outer edge of the disk. if it asks to overburn or truncate then the drive isnt flashed correctly matey

    OK. Thanks. By the way, it does not ask me to overburn or truncate. Therefore, I guess I installed the iXtreme Burner Max customer firmware correctly on my Lite-On iHAS 324-XX B DVD drive. Thank you for confirming that. Just was curious about the settings for either overburn or truncate. But according to you, it does not matter because the iXtreme Burner Max customer firmware bypasses both and writes 100% of the ISO to the outer edge of the disc, as long as the iXtreme Burner Max customer firmware is installed correctly. In which it is. Thanks again jamesyboiii.

    I do have the layer break set to Calculate Optimal. I stated that in my original post. You did not see it?
