How can I get my PC's DVD drive to read xbox games for backup

Does anyone know what must be done in order for me to be able read my xbox 360 games to back them up? If anyone has any answers Please post them.

  1. Making copies of your Xbox games, even "for backup" is too close to piracy for comfort, making it against forum rules.

    I doubt you will receive a reply on this forum, sorry. All I can offer is google.
  2. +1 ^ I agree.

    Besides that, I don't think THAT many people actually make "back up" copies.
  3. If you are worried about your discs getting scratches then I recommend you try D-Skins for for CDs, DVDs, and Blu-Rays.

    They are a clear protective "skin" that you can attach / remove from your disc. They are pretty decent but some drives may have issues reading the disc with the D-Skin on. I haven't had that issue, but sometimes it does take the drive a little more time to recognize the disc; 20 - 30 seconds perhaps.
  4. For the "Majority" of software It's perfectly legal to make a "personal" copy of a medium in order to preserve the original. It's when you make a copy for "ANY OTHER" purpose, weather for monetary gain or not, is when you re in violation of copyright infringement & software piracy.
    And if don't agree with this answer then,

    If you use Microsoft products in EVERY aspect in the invention of software that becomes a multimillion dollar success, CAN MICROSOFT claim part owner because you used software you did NOT own?
    If so , WHY?
    If not, WHY NOT?
