    I have an xkey installed and it works great. However, I have downloaded several games that are not in an iso format, they are in an extracted iso format.

    So I have the files and various directories. However, when I try and turn it into an iso using imgburn or
    winrar xkey doesnt recognize it.

    How can I fix this

    thanks

    Extracted games ONLY works on JTAG/RGH systems.
    They will not work on Xkeys/flashed DVD drives.

    Is there no way I can make them a working iso? I have the files. I just need the last bit to make it an iso. God2iso was recommended but does not work with extracted files.

    Nope.
    GOD games are different from extracted games.

    Either redownload them or backup retail games ;]

    god files are for jtag/rgh usage only, the Xkey needs a full ISO file....not a rebuild or anything like that....the original ISO dump of a game

    No problem ;]
    Make sure you run them through ABGX 360.

    i really do wish the xkey could have a "shrunk" iso of sorts :(

    was the first thing i checked into when i got mine but sadly not an option. so much space is wasted but still i think the best option for online enabled machines.

    360 ISO's contain anti piracy tables on the disc as well as video partitions and other things not related to gamefiles but are related to authentication.
    One can't simply snip away that data on non hacked machines unfortunately.

    Besides, Harddisks are cheap these days, and 2 TB can hold ~200 games.
    I dun think people are really playing 200 games at the same time.
    Except for hoarders ofcourse.

    I agree, 2TB is plenty for 360 games.

    About to get 4TB at tax refund time for the PS3 on the other hand. Them games get BIG. CoD on PS3 is like 20+GBs compared to Xbox 360 which is 8-16GBs at most.

    2TB should also be plenty for PS3 games imho.
    I'm planning on upgrading both me PS3 and 360 to 1TB somewhere in the future (CFW and RGH)

    I'm running out of space on both of them, seeing more and more beta builds of games are being released.

    It is space for quite a few games, but now I'm in a spot where I can't grab new games that come out unless I remove one or two games. I prefer to have about 30-40 GBs left over space on my drive at all times.
