    Hello,

    I had my Xbox 360 flashed to play backups of my games last year. It currently plays all games including XGD3s. I'm not sure which drive I have but I recall having some difficulty playing XGD3s until they were burnt onto Verbatim disks. I recently purchased a Kinect and I have backups of Kinect Adventures and Just Dance 2014. Unfortunately the console refuses to let me use the Kinect without an update. My 360 is not online and I am aware that I can update via USB if necessary, but I am afriad to do so in case I am no longer able to boot backups because my firmware has changed.

    Please advise on what I can do.

    Thanks

    You're fine to accept the update. Being you're playing XGD3 I can assume you're on LT3.0 or LTU firmware. I have personally accepted many updates with this firmware.

    Ok I will. Is the update on the disk and has anyone else tried it with Just Dance 2014? I'm just a little concerned because it's so new. Yes I'm using LT 3.0, that rings a bell.

    No.
    The only dash updates that reflashed DVD drives where 13xxx dashes.
    Any dash above 13xxx is safe to update.

    Considering he/she is playing XGD3, I'm sure he/she is past that point.
