-Will OSx360 work with my Mac? (Requirements)
OSx360 will work with any Mac with OS 10.4 and above. You will also need a Dual Layer DVD Burner, either internal or external. Any Drive that is recognized by Mac OS
should be compatible.

Requirements:
Mac OS X 10.4 and above
DVD Burner with Dual-Layer support (DVDR+DL)


-What DVD Drives and Media do you recommend?
Unfortunately, the "Matshita" DVD Drive that is used in most MacBooks, MacBook Pro's, and iMacs are not high quality drives. If you don't use high quality DVDR+DL media in your Matshita DVD Drive, the problem is compounded and can lead to the 'Unreadable Disc' errors on the Xbox 360. For the best results, I recommend:
A) Use high quality media (i.e. Verbatim, Aone)
B) Use a high quality DVD drive (i.e. LG, Pioneer)


-Do I need a modified Xbox/Xbox360 to use this software?
Yes... I'm not even going to try to attempt to program a firmware flasher Mac. Some of the PC firmware flashers were based off existing software. You'll need a PC for that task, or pay someone if you can find someone who will do this for you.


-Will OSx360 prevent me from being banned from Xbox Live?
I cannot recommend Xbox Live for use of backups. I can personally tell you that you can and may be banned for violation of the Xbox Live Terms of Use. This goes for backups created on any operating system.


-The Disc image fails validation. Can this be fixed?
It cannot be fixed natively on a Mac YET! I am constantly working on new features for OSx360. I am planning many features to fix invalid disc images, inject security sectors, and more. For now, there are many tools for the PC that can fix Xbox 360 disc images.


-My Xbox360 will not play the disc. What's wrong?
If your Xbox 360 is giving you "Unreadable Disc" errors, you may have a problem with your DVD Drive or Media. See "What DVD Drives and Media do you recommend?" for this issue.
If your Xbox 360 is giving you "Open Tray" errors, your problem is not with OSx360. It mat be cause by a custom firmware issue, or a invalid disc image.
