There are a lot of you out there interested in copying Xbox games, judging by the number of questions we?ve been hearing about this lately. We?re used to making copies of audio CDs; but can you do the same with your games ? and if so, how?
We?re going to tell you how to do this easily so that you can start copying Xbox games. There is one thing that we need to tell you beforehand though.
We are not endorsing the illegal copying of Xbox games (meaning ones which you do not own). What we?re going to show you is meant to be used to make backup copies of your own Xbox games, which is perfectly legal and gives you a backup copy of your games in the event that one of your discs is damaged or lost.
So now, let?s get into it. There?s not going to be a lot of complex tasks here, so relax. It?s actually quite easy to make backup copies of your games.
You might be asking why you can copy Xbox games with the same software that you would use to make copies of audio discs.
The short answer is that copying Xbox games takes some technologies which your existing CD burning program doesn?t have.
Xbox and other games are encrypted for copyright protection purposes. Without the right software installed on your computer, you won?t be able to read the data on the game disc. If your computer can?t read the disc, it can?t copy it.
Thankfully, software has been developed to get around this encryption and make copies of video game discs. Once you?ve installed the software, you?ll be able to read those discs ? so you can start copying Xbox games.
Once you have downloaded and installed the software, the rest is a snap. Just put the Xbox game disc in your computer and the software will read the data and make a disc image on your hard drive. Then insert a blank DVD-R and the software will burn the image to this disc!
Sound simple? It is! It?s so easy that anyone can do it.
Remember that you don?t need to pay a lot of money for these programs. In fact, the best ones around are between $30-$40, but some companies will charge over $100! While you can pay as much as you want, you won?t get better software just because you pay more.
These programs allow you to start copying Xbox games. It?s simple, inexpensive and will let you have backup copies of your entire game library.
