I’ve searched through the forums and some of the information is a bit too technical for me to understand so I created this thread so that I can ask the questions I have and hopefully understand the answers I get in return.
My goal is to be able to backup my games for both my Xbox 360 and my PS2 and play them on the consoles while being able to enjoy Xbox Live use. I have been told that when you add a modchip to a console it changes the bios and you can no longer play on Xbox Live. Regardless if this is true I am looking for a method to play backed up games without having to open up my 360.
How do I accomplish this? What is softmodding? Can a mod chip be installed and still allow me to play on Xbox Live? If so, which one(s)?
Another train of thought is: how do I create copies of my games? I currently use DVD Region+CSS Free and Nero Recode for making back-ups of my DVD’s, but I also have DVD Decryptor and will acquire any software necessary.
I know these are very basic questions but I don’t know much and I would like to learn. Again, my goal is to be able to place a backed-up disc of my game into the console and it act as though it were my original copy. What is the best way to accomplish this?
Thanks for all of your help!
