Hi, I just recently got an X-Box. I flashed the drive, but can't afford Verbatims right now to back up Too Human and Zumba Fitness: Rush.
I noticed there are games you can buy on XBox Live and play directly from the HDD.
I tried to install Zumba from the HDD after installing it, but it asks me to insert the disc.
We lost a lot of stuff in a move (had to leave it behind rather, due to space), and just packed most of our DVDs and games in empty card tins. In other words, we have so many CDs sitting around the living room and entertainment center, I'd prefer to have it installed on my drive, rather than search for the DVDs, especially when we get more.
So my question, is if anyone has ever thought of decrypting the downloaded games' protection to see what makes the system detect the game as being downloaded (downloaded, no CD required) vs protected (installed through drive, required CD).
It just seems like something that when the source is found, could easily be edited on the hard drive by a command line program, either by copying the game to your hard drive first from connecting the DVD Drive to PC, or by loading it to a PC DVD drive.
I did read the rules, know the policy on piracy, but I am trying to back up games sitting on the table in front of me. The reason I named the games, was because those are the only ones I have right now, in case someone knows something about certain games not working with certain programs that I could use.
If anyone wants verification that this is backup, because my living room has more CDs laying around than the amount of people Justin Beiber ****es off, I'd gladly post a picture of my living room, complete with mouse in wire jungle.
And sorry if this had already been done, but I couldn't find anything after about an hour of searching, and just seems odd it wasn't attempted, and a HDD backup of ISOs seems a little less illegal than playing burnt games: especially considering that the price of Vertbatum DVD DLs at the store aren't too much cheaper than games themselves...
Thanks for any help!
