So, I've seen lots of information spread around, not just by this community but by others, about the 360 and what can get you banned from live. I want to clarify some stuff to make sure this doesn't happen... 1: Playing games early gets you banned - This really is hard to say either way as it's more based on the fact you're playing early than you getting free games 2: Savegame mods can get you banned - No, unless you do stuff online and get reported a bunch. 3: Getting "failed to authroize" error - No, this doesn't flag you. It can happen on legit systems with real games. 4: Burning games badly or with modified files: No, it's not checked for, again only way to be banned is from reports. 5: Using a different DVD drive than the one that came with your Xbox - No, as long as you don't spoof to prevent errors with XGD3 games. There is no need to spoof as any drive will work as long as you keep the original DVD key in place. One thing to be aware of. Do not use a Samsung and Hitachi 46-59dj drive in a console with a lite on or ben-q drive. It will work but XGD3 games will not, in terms of vice versa it should work but I'm not sure. Haven't tried that swap.
