    ok i have two old white 360 and one the drive is burnt up and wont read but i have a new one on the way. my question is i have seen alot of options for modding like playing back up games and another for backing up games to a usb hhd. what im trying to find out is which one is better. also i have seen mod chips out there is there any worth buying that i can reuse on my other 360. i have done some research but i really kinda dont understand i just need some explanations thanks

    all depends on if you want to burn and run backup discs or if you want to run iso files off an external hard drive. both run the same risks for online play. if you want to run discs you need to have your drive flashed with custom firmware. if you want to run iso files then you need should get an xkey. ive done both and the best in my opinion is the xkey. check the link.

    You'd have to buy the xkey first.

    I personally don't recommend the xkey, as you already said, it's a lot of money you'd have to drop into it, especially now that you don't need a specific burner for burning games anymore. You also need the tools to get your drive key off your drive, on a Phat that's actually pretty easy.
    I personally recommend the drive flash, go to http://jungleflasher.net/downloads.html and download the jungleflasher tutorial, it tells you how to identify your drive and what you have to do to flash it. If you have a lite-on drive, tell us, there is an easier way of flashing that as the one described in the JF tutorial.

    It does not come with the drive key (it can't). Your drive has a unique key that has to match the one stored on your console's motherboard. That key you'll have to program the xkey with.
    By the way, that was the last spoonfeeding I did.

    Eisherz had already told you where to start. Read the jungleflasher tutorial to know how to identify the drive make (Samsung, Toshiba, BenQ, or Lite-on), without having to take the 360 apart (yet). That is where you START. Please have a better attitude the next time you post. You might get more help, and more respect.

    There's a thing called Stickies, that would have been a great place to start. The forum search also would have been. The way you did it just showed how lazy you are, and that you didn't even bother reading the forum rules.
