    You'll have to excuse me because although i've been doing PS2 stuff for awhile, i'm new to the 360 side of things.
    I understand the idea behind hotswapping using wxripper.
    I've found the samsung dvd-rom drive that you mentioned,presumably i can use this in conjunction with suitable software (Xbox backup creator/schtrom or similar) to extract what i need from the original disc??

    In case you might have missed it, the samsung 162c is just a dvd-rom... so you'll still need a burner.

    I've read a few posts before where members got their drive only to find out it won't burn. Just giving ya a heads-up.

    Once flashed with kreon 81, the 162c will still work as a regular pc drive only now it'll be able to read the security info from 360 AND xbox 1 games.

    It also seems that lately there have been alot of posts about members having problems with Xbox Backup Creator and new game. You might want to try Schtrom v3.2.

    Anyhow... good luck and welcome to the scene.

    Understood, but i've got a pioneer 111 for the burning side of things, the samsung is on on order, the kreon 8.1 is downloaded and ready to update.
    On the software side of things , i have schtrom v3.2 and xbox backup creator, and i was leaning towards using schtrom, so i'll give that a try first.
    Thanks to everyone for the help so far.

    If you use xbox backup creator then find v2.4.
    v2.5 tends to report video sectors as being "questionable",when in reality they aren't. I used 2.5, got the error on every game i tried so then went back to 2.4 which works just fine.
