The Xbox 360 is probably the most popular console available right now. Also, millions of people are playing games designed for Xbox right now.
The only negative about Xbox 360 games is that they are expensive and can be easily damaged. To avoid spending a lot of money replacing your games, you can simply copy your Xbox games to your 360.
However, people who have tried to do this quickly realize that it is not such an easy task to do without the right tools to circumvent copyright protection.
Xbox 360 games are in DVD format, so Microsoft has made sure to protect their games from being copied by DVD recorders. The protection that Microsoft has put into its games is in the form of security sectors.
These security sectors are small areas on the game disc that store the license and information about the game. When Microsoft places your game data on these DVD formats, it makes sure to place these safety sectors on the disc. They place these sectors on the disk in a unique way so that only the Xbox console and Microsoft can read them.
So what this means to you, the gamer, is that when you try to copy games using your computer’s DVD burner, you won’t see these visible sectors. To copy Xbox games to your 360, you will need to circumvent these security sectors.
One way to do this is to use a mod chip to bypass all protection codes. However, mod chips will void Microsoft’s warranty, and if you don’t know what you’re doing, you can ruin your gaming system. Another simpler way to do this is to use video game copy software.
This software will allow your computer to read the entire game disc and will allow your Xbox to read the safety sectors on the copied disc. There are plenty of video game copy software that will allow you to copy Xbox games to your 360, but there are only a few good ones. The good ones will allow you to bypass protection codes and allow you to play your games on your Xbox 360.
