Hi,
I recently bought an Apple Mac Pro computer. Problem is that it wont run all the cool PC applications I need to backup my games. I guess there is 1 app for Mac but it wont ripp the game to your Hdd first like the ones for the PC.
So I went out and got Windows and am running it under bootcamp. So far so good. I like having both options. But I want to know...Can I go and get the Kreon dvd firmware and flash the Apple "Superdrive" to read 360 games or can I put my PC drive(already has kreon on it) into the Mac now and run it whilest I am running bootcamp/backup creator?
So what can I do?

you cant flash the superdrive with kreon firmware, it would kill the drive as its not designed for it.

you would have to buy an external case for the kreon drive and hook it up via usb 2.0, and use it via bootcamp.

want to send me your hard drive and super drive tongue.gif? my powerbook has a dead HDD and DVD drive so its a pain in the ass to get running (got Mac OS X booting off an ipod...)

Cant I take the same drive I had. (I forget the model number) But it could read 360 dvd's. Can I just take that and put it in the other empty dvd drive slot I have in my computer(mac)? That way I have 1 drive for the Mac (Super) and 1 drive for my Vista side(standard dvd reading drive with kreon).

sorry, i thought you said Macbook, but after re-reading you only said Mac.

yes you can just simply plug in your current Kreon drive and use it in windows using bootcamp. you can also use it as a standard DVD drive in OS X too
