    I was wondering why do need a mod chip to play dvd-r games or backed up games. I was just wondering because people say you need it without giving a techinal reason.

    Because original Xbox games have a certain signal that the DVD drive will read. If you stick a -R in the dvd drive it doesn't have the right encoding as a original disc. SO... the chip makes the -R disc read as an Original. There ya go!
