    That's where you're wrong. They're NOT the same DVD-Drives. Xbox DVD drives read the games "backwards," because Xbox games are made from the inside out, not outside in. This is why PC DVD drives can't read them, which was Microsoft's intent.

    Sorry, you couldn't, not even in theory. First, you would have to get drivers for it, which you can't get access to, unless you know someone that works in Microsoft engineering, and will configure your PC. So I wouldn't even bother wasting my time with it. PLUS, in order to read the disc, you would have to install a bios on your pc hdd to even read the disc. It really isn't worth all the trouble.

    hehe

    Windows=FAT16/FAT32/NTFS file systems
    Linux=FAT file system
    XBOX=FATX file system

    That is the reason my friend.
