    umm yea, use someone elses xbox!

    otherwise, nope nope and no way, if you see sites that claim they have "software to backup xbox games theyre talking bull............they prob may have INSTRUCTIONS on how you do it, but no software.
    Only way to backup your xbox games is via ftp to a pc, as xbox games cant be read on a pc, no matter what software it has on it.
    This question seems to come around a lot, no offence to anyone asking, but if it was that easy............................why would all these forums consist of so many questions regarding it, and backing up games?

    There IS a way to back up an X-Box game just using your computer. You see, pc's can't read x-box games, so you have to use an x-box and ftp, rip files, etc. BUT, you can back up a game that's already been backed up. PC's may not be able to read from X-Box discs (encoding methods or whatever, idunno) but they can read from burnt dvd-media with x-box games on it.
