Updating xbox 360 without live
The Gold Membership gives you Facebook, Twitter, Last.fm, streaming Netflix, video chat, and Xbox Live parties.
In either version, you get firmware updates for your hardware to increase performance or update certain software features.
It doesn't matter what the name/label of the CD or thumb drive is though.
Once you have burned your CD or copied the files to your thumb drive, make sure your Xbox 360 is turned off, then put the CD in the Xbox 360's disc tray, or put the thumb drive into a USB port on the console, then turn the 360 on.
Xbox Live has two types of offerings, free and Gold Membership.
Just download the file, that's all you need to do there.
NOTE: Microsoft stopped updating their backwards compatibility for original Xbox games years ago.
