How to backup your Xbox games? I've got a small sister and she is very interested in my Xbox game disks. Is there any way of backing them up - just in case she does something to them? I searched the internet but people are writing/talking about "modding" your Xbox, which I don't wanna do. Any other ways?

There's really no way without modding which voids your warranty. If that's not something you want to do then take more precaution with your disk and make sure they are always in a safe location.

Backing up games is illegal. The reason why you have to mod your a dvd drive is because certain previsions are in place to prevent illicit copies of the games from being distributed. Even if you have bought the game you don't have copyright grounds to make copies. It also does not matter if it is for personal use, you would be violating Microsoft's TOS as well as individual publishers'.
Think of it this way: if you rent a movie from a store are you allowed to make copies?
Sony had a big issue in this and lost a large amount of revenue.

You can install games onto you Xbox 360 (I assume its a 360) so the disk doesn't have to be 100% readable to authenticate that you own the game as the actual game files are stored on the hard drive, other than that hide em.

You need a software to help you back up your games on to discs. However, by backing up and not modding you only make sure that you can play those games later on when the original wears out and you finally get ready to mod your Xbox360. If you are wondering how to play xbox360 backups, well you will absolutely have to mod your xbox360. Fortunately enough, this can be pulled off with some small software modification, which can later on be reversed, if for example you'd like to sell your console.
As for how to backup the games, there are loads of guides on the internet and most of you require to get an iHas drive, which costs a fortune and you will have to mod it and it just makes it a major headache. However, there is a software called GameBackupSystem (I personally use it) which takes out most of the process details and makes it a lot shorter. Well worth the 30 bucks I've spent on it. They have also updated recently to support XGD3, I think.
