    Hello,

    I was considering getting an xbox and decided to read the backup tutorial and it seems to me that it would take quite a bit of time to download game files from your xbox then make an image an then burn? Overall how long does it take to complete this process?

    It is quite fast. About 10 minutes to rip depending on the size of the file, about 5-10 minutes to create the ISO file and about 10-15 minutes to burn the image file to disc.

    It depends on a number of things, like how fast your FTP rate is, and how big the game is. It took me like 30 minutes to FTP Halo 2 over to my computer.

    The xISO process is not as long. It should take you 10 minutes top. Burning is about a good 12-20 minutes depending on the size of the xISO.

    So it's almost the same rate as backing up a DVD :)
