Microsoft Xbox 360 consoles utilise dual-layered DVD discs that can hold up to 8.5 GB of data each. You can copy and burn your Xbox 360 games to a dual-layered DVD (DVD+DL) using freeware software from the Internet. Copying your 360 game will take about 30 minutes.

Things you need
- Dual-layered DVD burner
- DVD+DL disc
- Xbox 360 game
Turn on your computer and open an Internet browser. Select a disc-copying program from the list in the References section (below) and download it from the developer's website. Install the program, then reboot the computer.
Run the disc-copying program and eject the burner's disc tray. Insert an Xbox 360 game and close the tray. Click "Copy DVD to .ISO" in the program's main menu and type a title for the .ISO disc image file being created on your computer. A disc image or .ISO file is a backup of the entire DVD that can then be easily burnt to a disc. Wait for the .ISO copy process to complete before continuing.
Eject the disc tray and place a DVD+DL inside. Close the tray and click "Burn .ISO to DVD." Type a title for the DVD being burnt and select the .ISO file you just created. Select a disc burn speed (Pick 1x, 2x or 4x to avoid high-speed hardware errors when burning) then click "OK." The program will create a burnt backup copy of the Xbox 360 game. You can use the disc as soon as the application finishes the recording session.
