    Ok, So i have been looking at these forums but i cant seem to find a post that can verify this or even mentions it. Now My Questions are firstly is there a reason a Xbox 360 cannot play backup games without being flashed, and why?

    Second question depends on the first, If i install the original game onto a non-flashed 360(non backup) and then play the game with a backup disc will this work.

    Also if anyone Knows any good Xbox 360 Modifiers in the Gold Coast Or Sydney Region Could You Please Comment With That.


    Thank You.

    Think for a second....... why on earth would Microsoft (or Sony or Nintendo) make a console that can play backups? Would you?

    No, because of my 1st answer.

    Google 'Computer Fair', they have events in Sydney and other locations and there's an asian guy who can do your mods - 360, Wii, PS3, DS etc. He'll flash your 360 for $20 or $30. Lots of decent PC stuff you can pick up there too.

    Edit: You can also mail your 360 or anything else to him, google 'jktronics', first result.

    To answer your question more thoroughly, an un-flashed xbox cannot play backed up games because the console looks for certain security features on the original disc that cannot be copied over to a backup disc no matter how hard you try. The reason for flashing the box is to make it so that the console does NOT check for those security features and boots the disc up anyway.

    As for your second question, the first answer applies to that as well.

    Asking this question cracks me up. I mean, really?
