It basically sits between your DVD drive and the rest of the system, and when necessary "tricking" the machine to think it has an original game disc inserted;
The NME-360 enables your XBox360 to play backups of your highly valuable original games. NME-360 is a universal solution for ALL currently available XBox360 Consoles on the market.
Which begs the question whether you can play on Live! with backed up games, and a quick look at the Howto/Q&A states that:
The NME-360 autodetects the inserted media. If the inserted media is a backup NME-360 injects the necessary information to the DVD drive enabling it to boot smoothly ahead! If the media is an original game, or anything else, which doesnt require any further action of the NME-360 then it simply falls asleep so there is no need for an external switch whatsoever. This way it can not be detected online when you play an original onlinegame.
Their suggested retail price is 39.95 Euro.
Q: Can I play Xbox Live with NME 360
A: Yes you can! When you play original games NME 360 will not patch anything, so the drive is like an original unmodified one. We recommend that you DON`T play backups on live, due to the risk of being banned.
