Xbox 360 File System Is Cracked

Predictably, hackers have already found a way around Microsoft's elaborate Xbox 360 copy-protection schemes. Their latest handiwork is a utility called XPlorer360, which lets users browse the Xbox 360 file system and, most important, copy files—including saved games—on and off the console. You'll need to do some hardware handiwork to make it happen—including acquiring a SATA hard drive cable and/or a hacked USB cable—but once you do so, you can perform such feats of engineering as copying saved games from an original Xbox to the Xbox 360, which is one of the biggest Xbox 360 customer requests around. A new Web site has also sprung up for stockpiling saved games, so if you're stuck on a certain game title, you can use these saved games to keep going.
