The Xbox 360's DVD file system has been exposed, a coding group calling itself Pi, has claimed.

discs' files to be extracted and displayed as raw data. The group
admits there's not much that can be done with it beyond explore the
file-system structure, if anyone is prepared to jump through all the

that image to a PC.
