Copying to the Xbox Hard Drive
1. Step 1
Download the "DVD2XBOX" software onto your Xbox 360 console. Once it's installed, it should appear in the Xbox dashboard under "Applications."
2. Step 2
Open the DVD2Xbox program and place a game disk in the console. First, go to "Settings" by pressing the white controller button. Enable both the F and G drives. Then, push the back button.
3. Step 3
Press the controller's "A button" once you have a "DVD: XBOX Software" message at the screen bottom. Choose either the E, F or G drives and the "games" subdirectory to copy the game to. Then, press "A."
4. Step 4
Start the copying process by pressing the "Start" button. When the machine finishes copying, you will get a confirmation screen and can then exit the program.
Copying to a Separate Hard Drive
5. Step 1
Connect your console to your PC with an ethernet cable. Create an FTP window on the PC and copy the games onto the computer using the FTP.
6. Step 2
Convert your copied games into ISO files. You'll need software like ISO or Qwik to do this, and either software type is downloadable for free.
7. Step 3
Burn the ISO files onto a DVD-R, DVD-RW or CD-RW to make a backup copy of the game disc. You will need DVD burning software that will make Xbox compatible discs. Nero's Burning ROM or Alcohol 120 will do this.
