Games Transfering

Recommended Posts

I have just copied all of my games to my HDD using dvd to xbox.  What is the easiest way to copy them to one of my other xboxes.  All of my xboxes are modded.

Unleashx has a built-in, little known, FTP browser/client feature in the file manager to do xbox-to-xbox file transfers.

This is news to me. How does that work?

You switch to the FTP browser mode.  Setup the login credentials for the remote Xbox ( or other FTP server) and save them.  The FTP browser will show a list of avaiable FTP servers to connect to.*  Files in the left-pane are on the local site and the right-pane the remote server. Select files/folders to be transferred from the local site to the remote or vice versa.

*Note: The first time the FTP browser is opened it won't go anywhere.  The right-pane will be empty.  You need to enter the IP address and login credentials of the FTP server you want to connect to.  It does not have to be another Xbox.  If your Xbox has Internet access, any FTP server that accepts a plaintext password will work.

I'll create an UnleashX tutorial and post it soon with pictures.  Works best with a few pictures.

How to Enter the UnleashX Dashboard's File Explorer FTP Browser Mode

Go into the File Explorer menu item of UnleashX. The FTP browser mode is entered by pressing the White button which brings up the pop-up Select menu.  The last item (D-pad up 1) to see Switch to FTP Browser.... then press A.

Press the White button again to have the pop-up Site menu appear.  Here you select Quick Connect... or New Site..., enter the IP address and login credentials for the FTP server.  If you already have saved sites, when you Switch to FTP Browser mode, the list of saved sites to connect to will be listed.  Select the FTP server you want to connect to and the right-pane will be filled with the remote sites directory listing.  

Highlight folder(s)/file(s) as you would for moving/copying them between drives/folders in the File Explorer panes - the left = the local site (the Xbox) while the right=the remote FTP server.  In FTP browser mode, the copying/moving operations are between the local Xbox (FTP client machine) and the remote FTP server.

Press the Back button to exit the FTP Browser mode or press the white button and select Switch to Local Browser.

      I've recently transplanted my failing and old IDE hard drive to a 2tb expansion with new ribbon cable.  Also updated Unleash X to latest build.
      After I finished this I started to play games like Fight Night Round 3 where you cycle through different character bulids and such.. when customizing it looks like my drive is freezing up.  I've also noticed that when trying to play emulation front ends like coinops 8 the loading of some of the larger games like Killer Instinct freeze the system as well.  
      Could the corruption of the old drive follow to the new drive?  When I did the system transfer the only items I transferred were the eeprom partitions and saves. I was thinking maybe nulling the drive and then reformatting the other partitions might work?  But wanted to see if there are any other suggestions.  
      I've also attempted to launch these in xbmc4gamers but this also causes freezing.  Not sure if that should be a separate topic or not.

      I've got a little over 100 games that i've FTP'd to my xbox. I downloaded and resized covers to use for icons. I can add them manually to about half of them but once I get so far through the list, UnleashX will restart and then when I go back into the games list some of the ones I've added are gone. Is there a better way to do this? Am I doing something wrong? I'm just kinda puzzled that it's working perfectly for about the first 50 games and then I get this issue

      I've seen several UnleashX skins show the game picture/icon next to the name of the game.  But they don't show up with any of the games i've put on the hdd.  Am I missing something in the game folder itself or a setting I need to modify in UnleashX?  Any help would be appreciated.
