    recently, i remembered there was a way to get 360's to play old xbox games.
    now, reading up on it, you apparently need a harddrive for it to work. but all those guides and faqs seem to be very old, to the point where we couldnt use usb drives for saves, demos, profiles and stuff.

    so, i wonder, if the necessary updates are installed, will a usb drive suffice to get the old xbox games to run?

    thanks you ^^

    Still needs a hdd for backwards compatibility to work.

    Pirated DLC in DLC will only work on a jTAG/RGH 360.

    There are DLC packs which are released in the form of DVD's.
    Those will work.
