in the event of a disk becoming scratched/unreadable, can a game that has been installed to a xbox hard drive be extracted then be burnt off again to create back up?

if so, please point me in the right direction - software, tutorial etc?

thanks

You can FTP the game to the computer. From there you can build an ISO and burn it.

Never tried it, but it may work.

I have all my original Xbox games backed up to an external drive. If my hard drive in the Xbox dies, I can FTP them back over. Much easier than burning discs and ripping them again.

thanks 1hotjob, i was wondering if i could remove the 2.5inch hdd from the xbox hdd casing, then use sata cable connecting hdd to pc and then extract the game from it, can this be done with the likes of xplorer360 or usbxtafgui software? thanks

Why not just buy a $25-$30 Benq or Liteon xbox drive and flash it with 0800 firmware and use Xbox backup creator? That way you know you have a good backup.
