Hey all,



Soon, i will get a XBox360. So, i've seen some of the neat-o hacks on the net, and i wanted to try them, and all them need an iso to apply to. I know how to rip other games (eg. Wii games and NGC Games, as i have a certain LG 8163B drive that can rip those.)


The comp that has the LG drive has no writer, however it has a serial port.

So, i wanted to know, can i rip the 360 discs with the LG drive? Or must i get another drive.

Oh, if i get another drive, it NEEDS to be able to write DVD-DL's.

So, could someone who knows about this stuff give me a run-down on it??

I'd rather not open up the 360; however if its a necessity i will.

Oh, and:

If it involves flashing the drive, no, because i still want to rip Wii Games.

But, if you flash it and you can rip Wii games, then thats ok.

Problem: When you make an ISO of a disk, you will have to try a few times before it is identical to the ISO the patch is from. So, you'd be better off downloading the ISO and applying the patch.

Don't forget, MS bans consoles from Live.

I'd rather not because i have crappy download speeds.


60kb/s to be exact. Downloading a 7.5GB ISO just for a [censored] patch just doesn't fit the budget.

Oh, and we gots mail. The cable company are imposing a 60GB/month limit. So, now we are truly screwed.


So, i absoultly need to rip the disc. Even a few times; it's more reasonable then re-downloading for days a 7.5 gig iso.
