    If i rip a game onto my harddrive via the NXE, can i download a of the game of the internet and put that into my disk drive to play the game ?

    So for example i went to blockbuster and rented Halo 3, i installed it to my hardrive and took it back. I come home download halo 3 from the internet, rip halo 3 to a disk. could i then put that disk in my console and the xbox would reconise it as the normal halo disk ? therefore letting me play it ?


    thanks guys

    If you flash your drive it will work.
    But if thats what your trying to avoid then no.

    you don't flash your harddrive you flash your diskdrive.

    You must have a flashed drive to play burnt games.

    a nonflashed xbox will not even pick a burned game up at the dashboard and in order to boot from the HDD you need to go to the game click Y then click play from HDD.

    So i guess yes you can say people have tried it
