I read recently that standard XBOX drives read original discs backwards. Does this mean that the disc spindle motor is going backwards or the data is written backwards and then reversed in software once read. I ask cause I am interested in changing my drive and want to know why you HAVE to use 616 drives etc.
If the data is read backwards, how is it possible to copy games on to blank media and have that run fine in a non stock drive on an XBOX.
Help would be much appreciated.
