well $40 isnt much i charge more but the real thing is how he mods it or how much he /she knows....

and if u are really good @ this or have time to learn then i say go for it and do it ....

but is he /she guarnting it the they wont f#&@ up ? the 40 dollars guarnting u?

but it can be acuire here.... we made the latest and best softmod to go down in history of softmoding world... so if u wanna read and learn and have time and care bout ur xbox then read on hq here on / softmod installer deluxe disscisions and softmod discioussions ... also newbie section... im not flaming u ... but everyonce was a noob the 1st time ...

and the app that copys ur xbox games is called dvd2xbox.... KEEP IN MIND that we dont condone piracy and u can only backup ur original games.!!!..... to softmod it ur going to need 1 of the 3 fellowing games.. 007 agent under fire .... sc or ma ...... try to get non platinum edition platinum rarely works.... and they cost less then 15 bucks...once u got a game.... u need a way of transfering files from pc to xbox.. its called AR= auction replay ... cost about 30 and thats about it... so ur going to spend about the same amount.. but u know what ur doing and u have a mem card + a game to play so in the end result is better 4 u to make ur owen softmod.... to be quick the softmod is called sid4 ..... and its script so ppl that are new cannot mess up so say 4 example... u delte your ms back up and then mod might not work... BUT READ ON THE THREADS I METNIOND... and soooooo SORRY I MADE A LONG POST BUT ITS USEFUL INFO... hope this helps.... latez Wink

SELLING XBOX SOFTMOD. Includes: Ability to play burnt and retail games, DVD Player, Xbox Live Support, Hundreds of Trainers (built in cheats) for almost every game, Game backup software, skins, xbox media center, and lots more, also ask how to play online for free. leave a msg if no answer $40 thats what the ad says. Smile
I will have to email them and ask if the $40 guarenties they won`t f up.
I think if this person knows what he/she is doing i think i will go that route. rather than me screwing around and maybe screwing my xbox up.
I apreciate the help though Very Happy Very Happy
could you give me a bit more info on how the DVD2xbox works please Smile
thnx again Very Happy

so ur assuming u can copy ur xbox games using a pc right????

well the answer is NOOOOOOOO .... lol u cannnot copy xbox games using pc ...... dude seriously do it urself its easier.. i was a total nooob a long ass time ago and i almost messed up my rare xbox and that didnt stoped me .... so if a 16 yr can do it why not u?.......


if u put ur game 2 ur pc it will just say" this is an xbox game put it on ur xbox" or somtin like that.. its conpicated how it works but there is no way in hell ur goign to copy an xbox game using a pc.... HOW EVER.... u can transfer via FTP and u can burn ur xbox games once u make them x box iso... xiso... SO ONLY 2 WAYS OF COPYIN UR RETAIL GAME.. dvd2xbox .. burn it 2 ur hd... or make a backup disc ..... its always better to put it 2 hd.... loads faster and less mess and just evertying goes faster...

read here here and here.....

your 16? Hey, i am 15 Very Happy
I think i would rather make backup copy rather than filling my whole HD with a game. So how would i do that? what would i need? do you like, copy the game to the HD then transfer it onto a DVD?? Or what?
thnx for the help Very Happy
Yah, i thought i could copy the games with my PC

thre is soooo many reasons why burned 2 hd vs back up disc is better.....

and even if u managed to make a back up copy its stil useless for xbl just for the fyi....

if u have the original hd then u can only burn about 1- 3 games .... it all depends on each one.. so what i did after i fixed my sort-a fu*k xbox i upgrade it to a 200gb hd...

1( it takes long time process to make a back up disc .... which is a pain in the ass......

2( u need to invest more on blank dvd-rs and comes out more expensive...

now as where if u burn the game to hd then it :

1( loads faster and its quicker and pain free....

2( if u want to safe store it the just FTP your xbox C E F and G ..... and have it for safe keeping....etc etc....

3( u dont spend more money....

well yea hd but at the long run its worth it you'll see...
