    Why would you need to flash the drive? If you soft mod the Xbox it will play back-ups with no flashing needed.

    Not without some hardware modding, if you want to use USB.

    You could hotswap it without modding but you'll need an IDE connector in yer pc to do it.

    the USB connector of the Xbox controller, you could solder a USB connector to the memory port or you could splice the cable and solder a USB connector on it.

    Oh, I have an adapter for that already, the problem is executing the code in the first place.

    Have you got a memory card?
    Then hook it all up to a PC, install Xbox Action Replay and copy a hacked save to the memory card.
    Then boot up an exploit game and install a dash ;]

    I could, I just do not want to spend the money on a game for the one use. So I was looking for other methods to softmod it.

    Then hotswapping is the only option left.
    That requires an IDE connector in yer PC.

    No prob~
    Good luck with it!
    I suggest Mechassault, it's still a neato game, unlike the other 2.

    The other is a James bond game and the final is a stealth shooter.

    Well, you can atleast sell them when yer done.
