    My brother's friend lent him GTA IV, and I installed it to our Xbox 360. Since it is his friend's game he will ask for it back, so I'm wondering if the DVD drive can read enough of a burned copy or recognize enough of it or something and launch the installed copy?

    You'll need to flash your drive yep.

    This can be done easily if you have a Phatty 360.
    If you have a slim, it's tricky.
    In all, I'd opt for an Xkey.
    It'll allow you to play games from a USB harddisk.

    nope, mine decided to lose weight,

    I do have a phat xbox 360 though, but I like to use the slim one because it has internal memory for cloud saves. the phat one was the arcade edition

    Yeh I'd go for an xkey then.
    Benefit is the ability to use an external harddisk as storage.
    Drawback is the initial cost.

    But if your Slim is old enough (which I think it is) extracting the DVD key is incredibly easy.
    Just hook it up to a SATA port (if you got a compatible SATA chipset) and dump the keys in Jungleflasher.
    Or bring it to a modshop and let them dump the keys + install the Xkey ;]

    I highly recommend x360key, it was probably my best purchase for 360 ever.

    Yes, 2010 is a model which has Liteon drives.
    You're able to extract them without any problems ;]
