    CloneDVD backs up DVD compliant files, not games.

    you cant backup any kind of xbox game with any kind of normal cd/dvd drive because they cant read them. :disagree: xbox discs have a different file system and they are also burnt from the outside of the disk in (normal cds/dvds are burned from inside out).

    to play any kind of backup on an xbox requires a modchip or softmod, the legality of modchips depends on your residence and a softmod requires a little technical know-how. usually chips are legal as long as they are only for backing up legally owned games (similar to anydvd).

    if you get a chip or softmod there are many tutorials you can find on how to backup xbox games.

    (they usually involve hooking your xbox up to a network via ethernet cable, ftp-ing to the xbox from your comp [default user - xbox, default pass - xbox], copying the files to your computers hard drive, and then burning them to a regular dvd. i use nero with the xbox compatibility mode on [data dvd, udf, xbox compatibility mode], they work great :agree: )
