    new xbox 360 250gb hard drive

    Just bought new xbox with 250gb hard drive. I am total newbie. I have some scratched disk I got from friends. Anything I can do to reburn these or antything? They are easy to scratch so can I somehow back up new ones onto the harddrive? I am doing this for my new stepsons which are young teens and trying to get in better with them. Think it would be gr8 help. Any advice would be appreciated.

    If I was you I would re-edit your post because piracy is not allowed here. Make some BS how your worried about scratching disks.

    You can put game disks on the HDD. You still need the game disk in order to play them, the games will just load faster and the xbox will run a little quieter. I think you have this ability to put the games on the HDD confused with a JTAG which I will not go into. Google is your friend.

    NO PIRACY TALK ALLOWED..YOU SHOULD EDIT YOUR POST BEFORE THE MODS GIT YA!!

    no, installing onto a hdd helps nothing to RROD.
    RROD is a failure of mixed causes; but usually being recognized as GPU (graphic processing unit) overheated due to conosle RUNNING a game (operating).

    i would have thought that running a game from disc drive would make the 360 run alot hotter and lead to RROD.... i payed out for a 250gb HD for my old shape xbox just to help avoid getting the xbox hot, ive been installing every game

    u would be fine if the console be played at adequate air-flow (cooling) condition; especially for those of non-HDMI units with the oldie GPU heatsnik (ie. heatsink with no heatpipe designed)
