people ask me , the nSX2 documentation. Here it is.
It's all I have.
But If someone has a document I don't have,
please send me.
The PlayStation 3 and XBox 360 iSO filescan be copied and transferred to computer discs to allow practical storage. The iso discs are useful in case the original game disc has been damaged. Using the disc with the iso image, the game can be played in the actual Xbox console. People can download the Xbox games posted in the internet and convert them as iso files. This would allow people to enjoy the Xbox games on a Xbox360 emulator without spending too much money to buy original discs.
