ok, first of all i know how to follow instructions and i've worked my wii into the machine it is now =) BUT this whole 360 thing can get very confusing... so i have some iso's i used abgx360 to get the .dvd and i tried burning the iso onto a verbatim dl. coaster. then i tried to burn the .dvd. coster. then i tried 4x write speed. coaster then i tried 2x. coaster. i was given this flashed 360 from a friend so i would have no idea why it doesn't play the games becuase i have a few that he gave me and they work perfectly. but whats' bothering me is everything always checks out abgx360 goes through everything with no errors and showing retail for the c.d. and it's region free. the iso i'm trying to use is a region free l.a. noire please help i've tried to look everywhere before posting and i went 28 pages into this site before giving up...my dashboard is 2.0.12416.0 and it's already been banned so i wouldn't care about stealthing it...i just want the most simple way to play the games....which should be iso, burn, play...but it's not working all i get is a play dvd screen so. 1) if my 360 is flashed and was playing nba 2010 and borderlands would it need to be reflashed? 2)if i play a regular game and update the console through the games update could that mess up the flash? 3)is there a way to tell what the friend did to my 360? 4)if it's banned shoudln't it be easier to play iso games?
