    Normal PC drives can't backup 360 games.

    You'll need either a Kreon drive (specific PC drives iirc which are pretty hard to find) or a 360 drive itself with a 0800 firmware flashed to it.

    If you're talking about burning XGD3 games then you'll need a Liteon iHAS B series indeed.

    thankyou for your reply i have got a kreon drive but it dont back up the latest xgd3 discs this is why i am looking at a liteon ihas 124 b drive that is allready flashed with 0800 firmware v3
    please explaine why this ebay ad is saying that it will read thanks

    This is the brand new LiteOn IHAS124-19B optical drive which we pre-flash for you. Version B is the only version that will allow the iExtreme Burner Max to be applied.
    iExtreme Burner Max pre-flashed and tested to read an 8.13Gb DVD.

    You cannot backup XGD3 games with PC drives.
    Even flashed hacked firmwares.

    You will need a regular 360 drive flashed with 0800.
    Ben-q or Liteon drive preferred.

    the above posts are correct ihas drives can ONLY burn games not back them up, the seller's wording is incorrect.
