    what's up everyone. it's been a while since i've been in these forums. and i see things of come far from where we were before. I have a few questions, I don't really know much about computers. the furthest i've come is Backing up DVD's and PS2 games. I now have an Xbox 360. and this stuff sounds so cool, but unfortunately i am having a hard time understanding it all. so please help a fellow 360er.

    * Flashing the 360 *
    - What are the chances of messing up my 360?
    - Will there be any major differences with my 360? will it still run the same?
    - I've read tutorials, can someone explain to me what all the stuff is needed for like the extra drive? what it will do the the 360 etc.

    please help. I would really appreciate it. thank you so much.

    1. if you dont take your time and read what your supposed to do, the chances are greater that if you slow down and take your time.
    2. the only difference is you can set the read speed depending on the firmware you use.
    3. you dont need anything extra except a pci sata card if you dont have the required sata chip on your motherboard already, you may want to get the samsung drive because it makes ripping your games a lot easier

    a sata card is used for connecting a sata drive to your computer, and you need a desktop, and we arent allowed to give you links or directions to pirate games

    so basically what i would have to buy is the sata card, and the burner?

    Good times; it's kind of scary, just because it's a $400 machine(That I couldn't afford to replace) and I'm well beyond warranty, but it's actually stupidly simple; as far as I'm concerned.
