    Hi folks my name is David. I read your rules and as far as I can tell this question doesn't fall into the realm of your piracy rules, so here goes.

    I have a .tar I need to burn to DVD in such a fashion that my Xbox will be able to read it. How do I go about this? And what is a .tar? Is it an archive like .rar or a disc image like .iso?

    .tar is like .rar so you'll need WinRAR to extract for the .iso file. If it's in .iso, it's probably set to be burn onto a disc. So just use Nero and do an image burn.

    and will my xbox need to be mod-chipped to play that disk?

    and what if it's in .bin .cue form instead of iso can I still just burn the image with nero?

    Yes you will need to have a modded Xbox in order to play the burnt games.

    .iso format is generally DVD-based rip.

    .bin/.cue format is CD-based rip.

    You can burn the .bin/.cue by doing an image burn, load the .cue and burn. For .iso, do an image burn and load the .iso file and burn.
