The following tutorial will take you through the simple process of backing up your original Xbox 360 games including XGD3 and AP2.5 titles with a Liteon DG-16D2S DVD Drive using Xbox Backup Creator v2.9 Build 345 and an X360USB PRO adapter.

You can use the 0800 V3 firmware with any Benq or Liteon Phat drive - but we will use a Liteon for this tutorial.

Requirements:

  • Xecuter X360USB Pro
  • Benq or Liteon Phat drive flashed with the latest 0800 v3 firmware
  • DVD Drive Power source (the tutorial uses an Xecuter CK3 Pro)
  • Sata Cable (Supplied with X360USB Pro)
  • USB Cable (Supplied with X360USB Pro)
  • Latest version of Xbox Backup Creator (Download v2.9 Build 345 Here includes 13599 dae.bin file)
  • X360USB PRO Windows Drivers
  • Windows XP / Vista / 7 - 32bit or 64bit

Before you connect everything you first need to install the X360USB Pro Drivers. These are signed and work in Windows XP / Vista / 7 both 32bit and 64bit. Download the small driverpack and plug in the X360USB PRO USB Cable. When it asks for the drivers simple point to the files you saved and they will install with ease. You are now ready to hook everything else up.

It's very easy to hook up your Liteon DG-16D2S to your PC. Simply connect the DVD power supply (in this case the Xecuter CK3 Pro) to the DVD drive (take care to make sure it is fitted the correct way - the wrong way can damage your drive) and to a molex power cable from your PC or from an external Molex power supply. Then connect the SATA cable from the DVD drive to the X360USB Pro, and then connect the USB cable from the X360USB Pro to a USB port on your Netbook/Notebook/Laptop/Desktop computer.



OK we are ready to begin:

Once you connect a drive to your PC using an X360USB PRO and it's flashed with 0800 V3 firmware, Windows will assign a drive letter automatically (make sure that you close Jungle Flasher after you have flashed the 0800 V3 fw). We suggest you give it a few seconds to initialize if it's your first time connecting.

1. Make sure the dae.bin file is in the same directory as the XBC app. Put the original disc in the drive. Load up XBC. If this is your first time you need to setup your options.

(1) Select the Options tab
(2) Make sure SPTI is selected
(3) Select your 360 DVD Drive. In this case it was assigned drive letter L
(4) Make sure the correct drive is selected, in this case its a DG-16D2S.

Make sure all the rest of the options are set as per the screen shot below.




3. Now to start reading the disc.

(1) Select the Read tab
(2) Make sure Complete Backup is selected.
(3) Select the Start button




4. You'll now be asked for a save location and filename.



5. Now the game will start to backup. You should hit speeds up to 10x with the X360USB PRO. Some computers and drives will differ slightly. My Liteon peaks at 9.7x.

If the game has AP2.5 data then the new version of 0800 V3 and XBC v2.9 Build 345 is able to extract and calculate the correct angles by using the dae.bin. This is illustrated here:



6. Success! XGD3 + AP2.5 Backup time 16 Minutes and 3 Seconds. Not bad - can your drive go faster? Post your results :) (Note XGD3/AP2.5 backups take longer than normal backups - in my tests about 3 minutes longer)




7. XBC will have created an .iso and a .dvd. Now go verify your rip with ABGX :) (Note: At time of writing ABGX is not yet compatible with XGD3 rips).

You can burn with IMGBURN or CLONE CD

As an example this is a complete log of a successful XGD3 / AP2.5 Rip

Wont XBC automatically unlock the drive once you hit start? I know when connected through normal sata my benq does. But maybe that doesn't function properly with the USB Pro?

It does yes, but I just wanted to show what that function did, and it also shows that the disc's game partition can be accessed correctly before you actually start any rips - so sure it's optional. :)

I added a note to that part of the tutorial - thanks.

Re: How To Use Xbox Backup Creator with Liteon DG-16D2S 0800 FW - Step By Step Guide

Is the ABGX verification necessary for all the games or just for the AP25 protected games, so, when we verify the game, it only patches the games with the AP25ss? I.e, I have a non verified version of Forza Motorsport 3 ultimate edition which is not AP25 protected. If I rip the game with 0800 firmware, do I have to verify it again through abgx, or this verification is unecessary for non AP25 protected games?

Re: How To Use Xbox Backup Creator with Liteon DG-16D2S 0800 FW - Step By Step Guide

This is absolutely fantastic, many thx!! :D

When I get my X360USB PRO, I'm gonna get a spare Liteon drive and flash with 0800, to keep solely for this purpose. This just makes it all so easy now :)

Re: How To Use Xbox Backup Creator with Liteon DG-16D2S 0800 FW - Step By Step Guide

Where in the guide does it mention anything about AP25 ?



That's all i see - clear as crystal.

Sorry but this will be probably one more "nuub" question...

You say to verify the image in ABGX only to check if the backup is good or to patch it?

I ask this because I read in some forum, I cant rebember were, that if I use one specific DVD drive to make a backup I do not need to patch the iso with ABGX...

Correct me if I'm wrong.

Re: How To Use Xbox Backup Creator with Liteon DG-16D2S 0800 FW - Step By Step Guide

Excellent guide, cant wait to try it with the X360USB Pro.

Just a quick question, instead of verifying the image in ABGX, lets say you rip a game thats just out and ABGX doesnt have it verified, is there a way you can rip the SSv2 files yourself so its 100% legit as you have done it yourself?
(i know Kreon = SSv1 and 0800 = SSv2, and I have a BENQ with 0800 but is there a certain method)

anything you rip with XBC and 0800/X360USB PRO will be SSV2

Re: How To Use Xbox Backup Creator with Liteon DG-16D2S 0800 FW - Step By Step Guide

Unfortunately this guide and any guide it CAN'T rip original games with ap25ss only WITHOUT this protection so it need (Mostly for ap25ss check games) after a complete rip of an original xbox360 game to do a check the iso of the game with the latest abgx360 program.

It would be a perfect rip if we can rip and the ap25ss.

Re: How To Use Xbox Backup Creator with Liteon DG-16D2S 0800 FW - Step By Step Guide

If your getting an error in windows 7 with mscomctl.ocx which is stopping backup creator from running then try this

Get the mscomctl.ocx whether zip/rar form or whatever, extract to( C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM directory. ) LEFT CLICK ON "Command Prompt" and choose "RUN AS ADMINISTRATOR"
this is important, RUN AS ADMINISTRATOR ok got that good, then use "CD C:\Windows\system"
NOT \system32
Then "regsvr32 mscomctl.ocx"


This will allow the file to run in windows 7 and let you start backup creator.


Hope this helps if anyone needs it.;)

Running XBC on 64-bit windows 7 its different again you need to put MSCOMCTL.OCX into C:\Windows\SysWOW64 folder.
Run command prompt as Administrator and ether type or copy and paste this in >>> Regsvr32 c:\windows\SysWOW64\MSCOMCTL.OCX if anyone needs it > Here.

Who do you think adds the patches to abgx?

This guide is spot on thank you as it tells you to use abgx to finish the rip.
