Cool A tip (X-box backups)

sponsored links

If you are downloading X-box games and waiting for your modchip to burn the games to make sure they work, you don't need to.

You can test your X-box burns without a chip.

When you put in a working X-box backup, it will read it and then go to the X screen with Microsoft at the bottom like it does when you boot a original game. After that it will give you an error screen about being the wrong media. If you put in a non-working burn, it will just popup the same error from the dash without going to the X screen. There u go guys!

Peace d00ds

Great tip! I, too, get an error that the disc is not from the proper region. (This was from a DVD-R backup of an XBox game...system not chipped yet). When I put in a PS2 original or a PS2 backup (also on DVD-R, just to check), it says not an XBox, DVD, or music disc.

Great bit of info, Katz, thanks! Now I can get all these files off of my poor hard drive...

OK, I get one or two that say incorrect region, the rest say can't read the media...

Can anyone confirm if both errors indicate a good backup?
