    Step 1: Get on your Xbox 360 Dashboard
    Step 2: Go To Your System Settings
    Step 3: Go To Console Settings
    Step 4: Go To Auto Play
    Step 5: Disable Auto Play

    _______________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

    Insert your original disk
    Wait until (Press Y For Game Details) Appears
    Stand Beside Your Console With Controller In Hand
    Press the Eject and Y Button At The Same Time
    The disk tray should come out (Obviously)
    Insert the modded version of the disk
    The Hotswap is Now Finished and you can install the game to your HDD off the modded disk

    Download the .iso, make any modifications you want, burn it to a dual layer dvd. The problem is it won't boot from a normal dvd because the xbox 360 game dvd's most inner circle contains the boot code that is used to verify your running a legit game, dual layer dvd's aren't going to have that, and you wouldn't be able to write to it anyways, so you have to hotswap the game after its booted to use the modded disc.

    Okay thats weird, i have NEVER heard of any doing this without the old drive, I created a YouTube video about it and the only comment i got back was from someone with a old drive that got it too work, and it had over 10K views.

    to everyone, THIS DOES NOT WORK. All videos on youtube are when people use an actual game to show you that it works instead of a modded disk, in order for this to work, the modded disk needs to be readable to the xbox, trust me ive tried this over and over agian and i have the BenQ drive. If this works, than i will shoot myself in the foot. lol

    I can see everyones having problems so I am going to tell u how I got it to work. If u press the eject button late enough u will have the bootup options and the disk tray is out so you can do a quick swap. When the nodded disc is in it will be spinning slower than usual because there is nothing to read because you're in a bootup menu. Once you click play or install it start spinning faster and that's how you know it's working. I got this to work once but I was testing with another disc cuz my WaW is scratched from hotswapping with my open xbox. I am sure it would work on all drives.
