Got to have it, the boot info won't be on the burned disc.

burning a dvd-r is the easiest way of copying xbox games, it worked for me until i got my mod chip. :-)

I'm not positive, but I'm about 95% sure that that's impossible. I've never heard of a DVD burner that doesn't support DVD-R.

I am talking about the firmware that the drive uses. Most DVD burners are able to be updated with newer firmware. Look on the manufacturer's web site to see if your model is upgradeable. It's just like flashing your motherboard's bios. DVD burners use a ROM chip to tell it how to run and what media it can use. This would get flashed with a new firmware if it is possible.
