    So, i recently started thinking about flashing my DVD drive, but i have a few questions.
    1. If i flash my drive, can i get banned on Xbox Live?
    2. Can i burn Xbox Live Arcade games on dvd's and play them? Like, convert them to a .iso or something?
    3. I also saw that most games are between 7 to 8 GB big, where can i buy these formats (preferably in Europe).

    Thank's in advance!

    1. you can get banned if you don't burn your games correctly or play burned games early
    2. no you cannot burn XBLA games onto dvd and play, only ones that have been released on retail
    3. can't answer that question on this forum, let's just say google is your friend.........................sudeki300

    What's wrong with question 3? I only asked where you can buy 8 GB DVD's, that doesn't involve piracy, does it?

    sorry i thought you meant burnt games, you really want to find a pc fair near you or a good pc shop. the best is verbatim and make sure they are made in Singapore as they are the best for 360 backups....................sudeki300

    Verbatim DVD+R DL
    MKM-003 model.
    As for the burner, you'll need an iHAS B model or one compatible with the Burnermax payload tool.


    Personally, I'd recommend an Xkey (if you plan on playing lots of games that is)

    Xkey is pretty convenient, plus saves you DVD's and time to burn them ;]


    Calm, if you have nothing better to provide then nonsense, please don't respond.
    You're not helping at all.

    Yeah, but doesn't this place need a little nonsense now and then, Dinoh? Plus the guy already had enough input: I was merely drawn in by the title.

    And I'll think before I post something kind of nonsensical again.
