I am thinking of backing up a few of my Xbox games as I have already ruined one game as I leave them on the side, they get knocked off troden on, etc.
1 - I was just wondering what problems I could incounter and possible damage to my xbox could come from chipping my Xbox?
Well taking anything electronic apart or hacking something can always result in failure. If you do everything right, though there is little risk.
2 - I also heard that you need another hard drive installed to backup games, etc. is this true?
No, not at all. Unless you plan on storing games on your hard drive. I've never upgraded mine. It holds my MAME ROMs and that's it.
3 - Would I have to backup my Xbox hard drive, just incase something went wrong?
You should. After chipping your box you can boot evox off of a CD-RW disc, then FTP all the files from your hard drive to your computer.
4 - Are there any tips (other than read the tutorials) that you could give me?
5 - Is it all actually worth it, in the end I mean? Would it just be easyier and cheaper to buy replacement games as they break?
I think so.
