I have an xbox 360 (Modded my self Benq iXtreme v1.41), and a softmodded xbox original.

With this said I have been doing reading about backwards compatibility form xbox to 360, They say you have to patch the game and burn it to a dual layer DVD. Well this tempted me to play around a bit so I referenced the compatibility list found a game I had in my library and put the backed up game in the 360 and received an error, Fine so I took an original xbox game and the 360 played it? My question is this if the original game plays in the original xbox and it plays in the 360 why won't a backed up version of an original xbox game play on the 360 without it being on a dual layer DVD?

I am only trying to understand why;)

Easiest answer (It doesn't have a real explanation ... sorry) : All copies must be on dual-layers, for the 360 to play them ...

Sorry it's not a better explanation ... it's just a fact ...


EDIT : I'm sure someone will come along with a better explanation for you ... I only posted this to let you know that we are paying attention

the hacked firmware you choose was the 'stealth' one,

so it wont play unstealthed games as a defense.

and the original backups, have not been stealthed [although i think u can stealth them]


i never though the xbox originals had to be on dual layer disc/ but i could be wrong.

Hmmm..... I see so it would appear that it may have to do with the hacked firmware and security on the original xbox games as well how the games are being ripped This is interesting.

    i always do hours of research before i buy anything because half the crap you see gets bad reviews especially when it's on sale, stuff is usually on sale because it was a bad deal at full price and nobody was buying it

    Just, in general, sound bars are a scam.

  • Sicklyboy @ Sicklyboy:
    An actual decent to good sound bar is going to be as expensive as a lower end home theater in a box system with less functionality and a poorer sound stage

  • Sicklyboy @ Sicklyboy:
    Which is to say you're spending so much money to still have 100% of the sound come from the bottom of the TV.

    aye long as you're happy with your purchase that's the important part

    You really can't judge based on video reviews as it's not the pure sound coming from it
    Gift
  • KennieDaMeanie @ KennieDaMeanie:
    So any product reviewer can just say spend $200 more on this cause it sounds better be your own judge

    Plus stores have that 30 day return thing if you're not happy with it return it it shouldn't need to be a huge deal lol

    Does everything I need it to however it's got some peculiarities that either I'm just being big dumb and not understanding right, or are a complete dealbreaker

    I'd love to own a good klipsch or Yamaha receiver but I don't really need to spend $200+ on a receiver living in a single bedroom apartment

    Funny that, I actually just replaced a Yamaha receiver, replaced it with a manufacturer refurbished Denon unit
    Gift
  • Sicklyboy @ Sicklyboy:
    Only reason for replacing is that the Yamaha unit was like 8 years old and didn't support 4k video

  • KennieDaMeanie @ KennieDaMeanie:
    Denon makes good shit

  • Sicklyboy @ Sicklyboy:
    And now that I think of it, only a single device that's plugged into it is even capable of outputting a 4k signal anyway lmfao
