Because you will be committing piracy, defrauding companies out of lost revenue & funding terrorism. That about sums up why you get banned !!

i think it has somthing to do with the firmware the dvd-rom is running if it isnt official they are able to see it resulting in a ban:thumbsup:

to answer your question, if your sensible with what you play, then you should be ok, by this i mean don't be playing games that are 2 weeks before official release date. Make sure you running either ixtreme 1.4 or 1.5, don't think there is a way to check which firmware your on.

also if you dl backups yourself then run the iso through a prog like xbox backup creator, to check it for stealth

I agree

defrauding companies out of lost revenue


Not in the slightest, I wouldnt pay the full price for a release so they arent losing a penny from me

funding terrorism.


Of course I am:whistling: Thats just a load of twaddle, the only person to profit from me is my man on the market who I get blanks from and he's no terrorist (is he:oops:?)

The main concern here is you agree to a digitally signed copy of terms and conditions when you sign up to Xbox Live Gold, piracy aside, modifications can actually be made to the game as well, hence enabling you to be able to cheat in certain games which would be unfair for the Xbox Live community....so it has issues other than including piracy too.

In changing the data on the disc, I believe you are making yourself more alertable to the MS team and including yourself in a ban hammer

Game modifications before burning ISO.

Personally I think it is pointless attempting to flash a 360 if your intentions are to use Xbox Live, hence why personally I havent bothered, unlike every other console I have owned the 360 is the only one that has not been modded.

There are so many games at fantastic prices for the 360, its worth supporting.

#21
They should give the games away for free & just charge £X PA for live ;-)
#22

Just buy the bloody games, most are around £20 if you shop around. Hardly breaking the bank.

Try using a cable connection and a 48hr trial before splashing out on those things
