    Hey!

    Question 1:
    I bought a used Xbox 360 and it came with two wireless controllers. I'm not a big fan of wireless controllers and my living room is not that big, can I use the recharge kit (just the cable) and use the controller as a wired one without batteries?

    Question 2:
    I already flashed the DVD drive, so is it possible to play the original Xbox (non 360) backups or only original games? I'm talking about the games on the retro-compatibility list.

    Thank you!

    1: No the play and charge kit needs the battery in the controller. It's just a charger, it doesn't change the wireless controller to a wired one.

    2: Yes, but they have be backed up like 360 games. So they have to be full rips and on dual layers. The old scene released games for the original xbox won't work.

    I have a Play and Charge kit, the controller works without batteries, if I have it plugged in.
