I have an original xbox that I modded with X3 and added XBMC and 300g hard drive. I use it to play all my xbox games on my dvd shelves straight off of my hard drive skipping all the inserting, and changing discs (So much more convenient)
I also ripped some of my music, pictures and videos. I am wanting to buy a 360 and do the same thing with it. I just want to modify it to be able to rip games (That i have already purchased, I don't believe in pirating either. $50.00 avg. isn't a harsh price to pay for an unbelievable amount of game development
) I want to be able to rip dvd's and maybe put some emulators on there for my old snes games (For which I also own the system/games). i have been trying to do some research and some reading about where to start, and what i need to do to get started, but I couldn't find a tutorial that starts from the beginning. I know that if anyone can lead me in the right direction this forum can. It was an extremely valuable asset in modding my first XBOX.
Any help, links, tutorials, would be greatly appreciated. If I haven't made it clear what I am trying to do, please ask me some questions. I figured that I won't get burned too bad seeing as how this is the newbie forum!!!
