Your Exclusive Guide on How to Record Xbox 360 Gameplay

If you are new to gaming or computers, and you don’t know anything about how to record Xbox 360 gameplay, then this guide will be perfect for you. We’ll walk you through the Xbox 360 game recording process step-by-step, including the different programs and media you’ll need, and the exact process you’ll need to go through. Without knowing how to record Xbox 360 gameplay, the concept may seem quite daunting, but rest assured that it’s actually not that complicated.

First, of course, you’ll need a game to burn. This is accomplished in one of two ways. You can make a copy from a physical disc, or you can download a copy of an Xbox 360 game image from the Internet, such as from sites like Game Copy Wizard. Note that depending on the program you use, you will need a file called a .dvd file in addition to your .iso file. The .dvd file will tell your burning software the proper layer breaks. When you copy your games to your computer, you should see this file included in the newly created game folder. Most online game downloads will also include these files.

Now that you have a game to record, we are going to find you a program to record it. There are several popular game recording software, some of them free, some of them will cost money. The most notable ones are Alcohol120%, Imgburn, DVD Decrypter and Nero. We personally recommend Imgburn as it is free to use and makes flawless copies of Xbox 360 games.

Lastly, this guide on how to burn Xbox 360 games would not be complete without mentioning DVD media, one of the most important and often overlooked aspects of the burning process. As with all things, not all DVDs are created equal, and some are much better suited for burning Xbox 360 games than others.

First of all, you should always buy DVD-R and not DVD+R or DVD+/-RW. DVD-Rs provide the most consistent recordings, especially when it comes to video and audio playback. It goes without saying that burning anything to RW media of any kind is a poor decision. The following is the DVD manufacturer and the maximum burning speed. Verbatim and Sony make the best DVD-Rs on the market in our opinion, and for recording games, anything between 4X and 16X top speed should work just fine.

You should now be ready to burn Xbox 360 gameplay. For this how to burn Xbox 360 gameplay guide, we’ll walk you through the process using Imgburn. The steps will be almost identical for other programs if you decide to use a different burning tool. First, insert your blank DVD into your DVD RW drive.

Next, open your recording program. Select ‘Write to disk’ and at which point you will be taken to a new screen. Select the file you want to burn. This will be the .dvd or .iso file of your copied or downloaded game. The last important item to take care of after this is setting the recording speed. Ideally, your burn speed should be half the maximum burn speed of your blank DVD. So in the case of a 16X DVD-R, you’ll want to record at 8X. Depending on your DVD RW drive, your ability to choose the write speed may be limited depending on the media. In these cases, always aim for as close to half the maximum speed of the drive as possible. Another rule of thumb is that the slower the burn, the more consistent the burn, so avoid the temptation to choose the fastest possible burn speed.

One last thing to keep in mind when recording Xbox 360 gameplay is to limit the amount of activity your computer is doing while the recording is taking place, which can also affect the quality of the final recording. You should close all non-essential programs, and you can even disconnect the Internet from your computer while the recording is taking place.

We hope this guide on how to record Xbox 360 gameplay has helped you. Following this guide should lead you to creating perfect backups of any of the great Xbox 360 games on the market. Good luck and have fun playing.
