It just seems like a pain to back up the game to a dvd-rw or r just to turn around and save it onto my xbox hard drive. I am pretty knew to this forum so I didn't see the hardware / technical questions forum so maybe I will post the same over there if that is where people will look for this kind of question. Thanks though I do appreciate the responce.
You could also FTP the games from your P.C to your xbox harddrive. im not sure how to do this but i think this is the common way people do it.
read into it a bit more.
You could buy a real replacement xbox dvd rom drive from a repair joint.
Im an aussie so i dont know much US stores but i shop at
Also check out ebay, i see there are a tonne of original xbox dvd rom drives going for fairly cheap on there and if you do only want to play original games and occasionally the backup'd copy get yourself a thmpson or philips drive. Samsungs are more expensive for reasons i wont go into. Just basically playing more disc types, cd-r etc.
