    I have a BenQ drive... If I were to flash my drive, and played current games that are out on burnt discs, would they be able to find out?

    When everybody got banned in that last wave, was iExtreme 1.4 out? So it would have been preventable if people had updated? Did people even with 1.4 get banned?

    You won't get banned. I havn't got banned yet and i play games form 5 -6 hours straight w/o being banned.
    But i reccomend that you burn the games to your hardrive for the most maximmum secuirity. Seeing as your drive sectors are recorded now.
    In other words yes it's safe. You won;t get banned.

    Drive sectors? Why would I burn them to my hard drive if the drive sectors are being recorded?

    Also, what types of discs do I use to burn the game to?

    thats just what i have heard. But i don't do that and I'm still not banned. The only people who have got banned in the last ban wave were the people who playd gears and cod 5 early.
    Even thoe I played both early and didn't get banned:thumbup:

    People that got banned are from bad discs and old firmware. Some for playing games early.

    If your going to flash your drive then your at risk all the time. Best way to be safe is to check your game iso using ABGX for the lastest stealth patches. What i use and never got banned yet. BtW i have 2 consoles flashed. : )
