    How long does it usually take for a demo to be opened for silver account users? Is there a specific amount of time or is it whenever?

    Normally takes about a week for them to open up.

    You can also pirate demos and play them by just burning the file to a CD

    Seriously? I doubt that. Wouldn't it need to be a DVD as well. Not to mention the 360 would need to be flashed. Right?

    Nope, demos work just fine on any 360 when played from a CD.

    Oh that's why demos are uploaded? I always thought "why the hell would I download 360 game demo from usenet when I can get it off XBL?"

    I haven't seen many demos getting uploaded, and as far as I know free contents are unlocked to silver accounts after a week.

    wow you can really burn demos to cd?

    I really doubt you have to burn it to CD, most likely be a dvd

    I'm no doctor, but I would assume it would just depend on the size of the demo, really.

    you have to use folders? doesn't the demo just come in a .iso that you burn?

    Infact, rather than spam this topic up, is there a guide somewhere?
