    Hi,

    I have a dvd burner and a mod chip in my Xbox. I have made many backups for my playstation2 and now i want to for my xbox. My friend says that i need to hook my computer up to the Xbox and burn it then. What is he on about/ how do I make a backup copy of a xbox game?

    Backing up may not be illegal but breaking the encryption to do so is a questionable area.

    yes u do need to hook ur xbox through a router and up to ur comp. Because a normal PC cannot read all the data thats on a Xbox game disc.

    I did some research on this last year, it can be quite a convoluted procedure, I have also read some of the newer x-box's are not very good for modding.

    The following info is from Syber


    things you will need.
    1. a modded xbox
    2. evolution x dashboard ( don't ask where do a search in google)
    3. crossover cable ( not a patch cable, a CROSSOVER CABLE)
    4. a dvd burner
    5. dvd burning program ( primo dvd or record now max)
    6. ftp program
    7. blank cdrw (not a cdr as the xbox will not read it)
    8. XISO

    after you have located evolution x (EVOX), using XISO burn the files to a cdrw not a cdr. once done put it in the xbox and run it. scroll down to network make note of the IP address of the xbox. run your ftp program on the pc and create a new address using the IP of the xbox, press apply and connect and you can see the files on the xbox.
    first thing you want to do is backup xboxdash.xbe to the pc hard drive then rename the xboxdash.xbe on the xbox drive to xboxdash_old.xbe do not delete this file off the xbox drive now you can copy over the evox dashboard to the xbox drive.
    locate default.xbe and copy it over to the pc hard drive, from the pc copy it over to C/ on the xbox drive then rename it to xboxdash.xbe.
    you can now pop a xbox game into the xbox and then be able to read them in D/ and ftp the files to your hard drive make them an iso with XISO and burn them to a dvd

    for legal reasons i will not go any deeper into this or update this thread, and this forum nor myself assume any responsibility if you destroy your xbox.
