    check your games with abgx for ssv2 and splitvid, then you can play safely on xbox live [​IMG]

    Yea pretty much, providing your security sectors arent flawed when you burn your game
    Check wit abgx, like the above guy said.
    If it is flawed, then ur console will get flagged for a ban and will get banned in the next ban wave or maybe sooner.

    Just to say while bad burns/rips are the most likely cause there could always be another "fault" with the hacked firmware.

    Also offline/online- I would not count on it for anything.

    I'm seriously considering flashing mine, but since I don't have a DVD-DL burner it's currently a no-go. Plus I'm frightened as Hell of getting banned because if I do...uh-oh.

    the games you save up for NOT buying, will let you buy another box when you get banned easy.

    Hard drives are a different beast to 360 DVD drives.

    http://www.cpuid.com/cpuz.php -> via or later Nvidia and you are almost certainly in. Others are considerably less certain/likely although it does vary a bit between drive models as to what works and what does not. The Hitachi is the only one you can brick flashing it though (all the others you just try writing again).
