Default How are the games 'backed up'

sponsored links

I've been reading stuff about the xbox being allegedly 'hacked' with some chip or something, but how are the games backed up in the first place?

no-one knows yet some are speculating the following:

1) Serial Cable to PC (similar to dreamcast)
2) BBA Connection to PC (similar to dreamcast)
3) Connecting XBOX DVD Unit to PC and creating a program to read the new file system

all of the above are possible in my opinion - you can already get programs to transfer images from a the dreamcast to your PC via a Serial Cable and BBA connection (so why not for the X-Box) and there are also programs that let you view different file systems on a PC (so a bit of tweaking and hey-presto you can read the X-Box's so called FAT-X file system and off load the files)

Could be like the DC, only certain groups could do it with a special machine.
