So I recently bought an xbox 360 that was already modded. It was cheap and I didn't think to ask any questions about it. I just know it works as it came with a few burnt games. About (20), a few of them are quite new so I know they were recently burnt. My questions are: 1.) I have no idea what kind of mod it is, does that matter? If so, why does it matter and how will that change things? 2.) I began downloading a game. I don't know if there are certain kinds of games that will / will-not work. Although I did read through a guide (on afterdawn) on how to burn a game, it said there are three types, straight rips, xtreme rips, prepatched rips. Unfortunately, the game I'm downloading doesn't say what it is! Is there a way to be sure whether or not my xbox will play the game once burnt? (before burning it) 3.) Probably a silly question, how do I find out which firmware I have? 4.) Ignore this question if it's forbidden. I did read over the rules quickly and it said no advertising mods, so perhaps this falls under the same category; Where is the best place to download games? I usually just search torrent sites. Perhaps there's a better way? I did searches but 99% of the ones I've found require paid membership, I don't feel comfortable paying for something I don't know is going to work. P.S. Sorry if these are "noob" questions. Please don't bash me too hard. --- I CAN take pictures of any part of the xbox 360 if requested. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!
