Havent posted in forever as my girl and I have a baby on the way and that takes most of my time up. I do however have an xbox360 coming for christmas for myself. :D

Curious if the various dvd drive firmware mods allow for using backup games or anything else neat?

Congrats !!!!:thumb:
Yes you have to open the 360 (pain in the butt your fingers are gonna be blue believe me), take out the DVD drive and connect it to sata kit ( around 25 usd) and then connect it to your SATA on the PC, boot to the DOS and flash it.Pro will do it in 30 minutes, you are gonna do it in 3-5 hours.In my first 360 thread there is guide.Of course it depends what kind of dvd drive do you have and what chipset you are using on mobo.
If you have any more questions feel free to ask.

The firmware (its stealth) allows you to download games :p burn them on DVD+R DL (Verbatim are the best, with clonecd at 2.4 speed or lower) and of course the game has to have secure patch so it's not detectable on XBOX LIVE.
