As always have no fear MS is trying again with a new copy protection so you can't backup your game DVD's you own. iXtreme 1.6 will be released very soon i should say. There is no release date and those that do the drive mods will know where to get it. Here is a peek at what 1.6 will do over 1.51 iXtreme.
