Default Does the Xbox have any copy protection on the disk itself

sponsored links

 
I know you need a mod chip for an X-box, so that is copy protection in and of itself, however, is there any kind of protection of hte game disks?

logic says no, but you all may say yes....

Yes, that's why many new games require either a patch or an updated BIOS.

The games do a media check to determine whether they are running from DVD or harddrive

game disks are in Xfat format, which ya can't read directly. Believe me that is one major copy protection.

Go read the FAQ. These basic questions is why the FAQ was written.

And the answer is NO, CloneCD won't work. For one thing original XBOX games come on DVD and they are unreadable in a PC's DVD-ROM drive..

I wish backing up Xbox games was as easy as the PS2 method. I hate downloading all those files just to have one be messed up. It ALWAYS happens to me.
