Found 28th Jun 2008
Im thinking to get a modded xbox 360, to save money on buying games,
Have a PS3 and all good games cost a lot.
However just checked that games that u can download are 7gb, when dvd-r are only 4.7gb
So Question is have u record games, do u need special DVD- r, like ones that 8gb.
Thank you

which in my experience are notoriously unreliable!

But I'd imagine you could run from a HDD? I know nothing of the XBOX360

The only way is to use Dual Layer Dvd's.

You can't play them from the hard drive.

1. You need certain discs - Verbatim Dual Layer (Made in a certain place, it's either singapore or Japan) These are the expensive variety.

You can go for aone (Which i do) Which are about £6 for 10 (delivered)

2. You need a certain dvd drive I think a Pioneer Something is the best (google it)
