How to Backup & Play Xbox360 Games Without a Mod Chip
Xbox 360 games are currently flying off the shelves, but unfortunately for many people, they are easily damaged and scratched. This has been a big problem for many years, and to fix it, you should just be able to copy and play a backed up version of the game on your console. However, because a few inconsiderate people have illegally copied games in the past, Microsoft have employed several highly effective copyright protection measures to stop us from copying their games. However, there is a very easy way to play backed up games on your Xbox:
The problem with Xbox 360 games is actually very simple. You see, because Microsoft don’t want people to copy their games illegally (or legally), they have encoded a series of “Security Sectors” on all of their game discs. These security sectors are just parts of the DVD which have been encoded in a special way, which only Xbox 360 consoles can สล็อต read. They tell the console that the game is legitimate and that it can be played.
These security sectors are very important – because the Xbox will only play the game if they are completely intact. And because they are not recognized by computers, or most DVD copying software, it’s extremely hard to copy them and make the Xbox play the copied game. Many people have got around this by soldering a mod chip into their console, which makes your Xbox ignore all the security sectors on the game disc, allowing you to play copied & backed up games, but these mod chips void the warranty and are not very safe.
To play backed up games on your Xbox without any mod chips, you need to be able to copy your game discs perfectly. And the bad news is that there are hardly any tools or techniques to do this well, and has often been referred to as the “Holy Grail” of the Xbox 360… because if you can copy a game disc AND the security sectors it has, then you’ll be able to play copied games on your 360 console.
