    I hope so too. I have a few games I'd like to rip as well.

    You've gotta remember that not everyone has a huge HDD. Game installs are typically 6 GBs I believe, so if I were to have a 20 GB HDD I'd only be able to store 3. I agree however that HDD installs greatly improve loading times. The x360dock actually supports installing games to your HDD, which I've done with most of the games.

    Devin: And to add to your post, not only are HDD installs pretty large, but a lot of games are 3 discs today. FFXIII, LA Noire, RAGE, even forza and BF3 are two discs! I did the HDD hack, so I have a 320 GB hard drive, but not everyone can figure those things out.

    Fudge: Agreed. Phat consoles are pretty easy, Depending on the lite-on it can be just as easy but there are about 3-4 versions of it.
    360 Slims are much more difficult. Plus if you have a Slim you are completely risking not being able to use the ODE.
    The Lite-On 1175 and the Hitachi 0500/0502 don't even have a working method of getting a key yet. As well as no CFW.

    Dreamland.
    To add on to Fudge's post, you would use programs such as JungleFlasher to get the files. As said it's varies to drive to drive. Each drive even has it's own tab in the program, as each work differently.

    Great Review! This item looks like a nice, cheap alternative to the x-key ODD. I like its look and simplicity and if they update the software to work with xbox games also...Wow! And for 60-80 dollars thats a beautiful thing. ****Looks for credit card**** :D

    Yes, for now. Module 2 should ship in a week or two, and it supports USB HDD loading.

    Does this ODDE allow you to use PAL & JAP games on NTSC console?

    Sorry, no. It only allows you to play games from your region, or region free games.

    Looks like a great alternative to xk3y. I understand using backups is never truly Live safe, but I'm wondering if using an original disc in "drive mode" is? The only reason I haven't bothered with Xbox modding is because there are several games I like to play online.

    So, it's not safe for live right now. Can you run this in offline mode & you won't get banned?

    I'm not sure, it's all up to whether or not Microsoft can detect it. Regardless of whether you've used it on Live, or not.

    The fact that the only two drives not currently supported are the two drives that C4eva hasn't released cfw for, would indicate this runs off his code probably.

    Will still lose out to RGH once that is easily available.

    USB cable can be as long as you want. A friend of mine bought a 25 foot one, works fine.

    Shouldn't be a issue. A bit pricey though. You can get one for $72 with free shipping off Digitopz, or from ndscartshop? (Forgot the name.)

    I know that other sites are cheaper, but for those who only like to shop on "reputable" websites, this is their answer.

    I suppose so, I'm assuming they're based in the US as well which is a bonus for those in the US. I don't have a CC, so it's Paypal only sites for me.
