Hi,my xbox360 won't read pirate some pirate games,why?
First off I'd like to mention that what I post here does not condone piracy, merely reiterating information widely available already on the internet.
First off, your Xbox360 will not read pirated/backed up games if you have no made any modifications to it. Secondly, if your Xbox360 was bought in 2005 and you have not updated it to play on Xbox live, do not follow my advice here, look up the JTAG hack on google. This is more complex but it lets you do much much more with your Xbox360 and in a sense 'jailbreak's' it.
Regardless of what Xbox360 you have (old, 'slim', updated or not), you can enable it to play pirated/backed up games by flashing the DVD drive firmware with a custom firmware, the latest being the ixtreme LT+, with a software utility called Jungle Flasher. Do do this you need a computer with SATA capability and you need to take apart your XBOX. There are many good tutorials freely available online (best ones are from ixtreme.net) and there is enough info above to get you started.
If you are not comfortable with computers and/or taking apart your 360, I would not attempt any of this.
p.s. The latest ixtreme firmware does let you play your game copies on XboxLive without the risk of being banned, even when playing the latest 'protected' discs.
p.p.s I would also like to mention that while you may have purchased an Xbox360, in the U.S.A. you do not own the full rights to do whatever you want with that device (current exceptions only being made for mobile phones). So if you live there, customizing your Xbox360 in whatever way you see fit is illegal until further changes are made the DMCA.
