Sorry to be a complete newb, but a friend of mine got his Xbox moded by some company and he seems pretty happy with it. He says that he can play all the old snes games and stuff on it to, but that his xbox live doesn't work anymore. So, can you tell me what's going on and what mods do? Oh, also, I've been reading some your posts and was wondering, what's the difference between the Xacuter3 chip and the Xenium Ice Solderless chip? The solderless looks like the same price and says it has a switch, but I really have no clue. And do mod chips come with the BIOS and dashboard? I read a thing that talked about them but I don't know how to get them or if I don't need to worry about it. One last thing. A thing I read says that an xbox only takes DVD-R. My computer only has a DVD+R, but I've been burning a few movie backups onto DVD+R's and they work fine in my xbox. What's that mean? .. Sorry I keep adding to this. But is there a way to back-up my old PSone games and play them on the xbox?
