Right, before we begin I want to make this very clear: your computer drive will not read your xbox game, it will just get a 13MB file. there is no way to make your computer read the game, so don't be fooled by DVD wizard pro and clone dvd or any of those, they wont work! the only way you could ever do this would be to replace your xbox drive with the computer drive, and who would want to do that?! Right, I made this tutorial because I know there are a lot of people out there that want to get this figured out. This tutorial will include: 1: What is needed to FTP or make a Backup game. 2: How to obtain these things 3: Once you have all these things to connect to your xbox (FTP) and make a backup of you xbox game! 1:what is needed to FTP or make a Backup game: 1: A modded xbox console - no exceptions, you must have one whether its a chip or softmod it must me modded. 2: A crossover cable. This tutorial explains how to conncect via crossover cable. 3: A new/custom (hacked) dashboard on your xbox, not the original M$ one. 4: Your xbox needs to be flashed, autoinstallers can do this 5: An FTP program. common ones are called FlashFXP, Qwix, SmartFTP... 6: An XISO program. not an iso program an XISO program. Common ones are Qwix, Craxation... 7: A burning program capable of burning ISOs. I recomment DVD Decrypter. 8: A LITTLE BIT OF LUCK! 2: How to get these things: Well, you will need a modded console his thread will not explain how to mod. You will need a CROSSOVER cable not a normal cable. this is a common mistake. It must be a crossover cable a normal CAT5 won't work. You can get these at any computer store for around $15, sometimes more, sometimes less. You will need a hacked dashboard on your xbox. the best way to get one of these is an autoinstaller. The best way to get a good autoinstaller is from torrent sites. Tutorials on how to use Torrents can be found in P2P section of the forums. Once you have your autoinstaller it will either be in an ISO format or a bunch of files. If it is already in ISO format thats good. If it isnt, you will have to use your XISO program to make one out of all the files. You'll need an FTP program. FLASHFXP is the most popular. You can find this on google. Last, you'll need a program capable of burning ISOs. i highly recommend DVD Decrypter it is a freeware and can also be found on google. I also reccomend IMGBURN. 3:How to FTP and make a backup. Step 1: First thing to do is to go into your xbox dashboard settings and make sure that your IP is set to 192.168.0.100, and that the Subnet Mask is 255.255.255.0, and make sure that Static IP is ON. Step 2: After saving your settings, connect your xbox via crossover cable to your computer's ethernet port. Step 3: Next go into your Network Connections. Then right-click on "Properties". Step 4: Click on Internet Protocal and tick the bubble that says "Use the follow IP" Step 5: Type in 192.168.0.1 for the IP, and the Subnet Mask should be 255.255.255.0 Step 6: Boot up your xbox, then open up FlashFXP or whatever FTP client you are using. Note: If you have followed all the steps and still can't connect, your firewall might be stopping you. Try turning it off. Step 7: In FlashFXP, click on the lightning bolt (quick connect). for the server URL, type in 192.168.0.100, and for the username it should be "xbox" and same for the password. Step 8: Your computer should now be connected, and it should be showing a bunch of diferent drives (C,D,E,F,G,X,Y,Z). Pop in the game you want to back up. Note: The xbox will auto-launch games, so put in the game after having FTP'd. Also, you will need a controller connected to FTP. Step 9: Wait for a few seconds for the game to load, then open up drive D. there should be a whole bunch of game files inside. Hilight all of these files (unless it's too big to fit on a standard DVD-5, in and you know which files not to include. If you're not sure, try http://www.balugabutt.com), then drag them over to a new folder on your computer. Name it whatever you like, and make it in an easy to find directory. Step 10: Time to put your XISO program to work. Open up Qwix and go to "Create ISO". Step 11: Tick the bubble saying "local folder", then go to the one you ripped the game files to. Step 12: Create an XISO. Step 13: Using the program of your choise (i recomend DVD Decryptor), burn the XISO to a DVD-R or if your drive reads them, DVD+R. And Voila! You have just backed up your first xbox game. Not too hard was it? Feedback and constructive criticism on this tutorial is appreciated, and if you have questions i'll try to answer them!
