An unmodded Xbox will not play a burned disc image.

The original discs have security features that prevent such simple copies from working.

Original Xbox discs are dual-layer media with sector sectors present.

One layer contains a short DVD video that plays when the disc is loaded into a DVD player (or played with the Xbox DVD playback kit) and the second for most games <4.7GB in size contains an XDVDFS (Xbox DVD Filesystem) with the game's files. This set of files is what's found in disc images you may find on the Internet for downloading. These ISO files are in a special XISO format that can be burned to DVD-R media; however, are not playable on an unmodified system. The console must be modified before they can be read - either by installing a softmod (software mod) or hardmod (modchip installation) the console will skip the security checks which allows these backup copies to work.
