Iso To Hdd. What Do You Use/Prefer?

Recommended Posts

Just wondering... as title says, what is the procedure you use and/or prefer to transfer your ISO games to HDD?

I see "Qwix" does this, but I also read something about "C-Xbox". Both seem to do basically the same things more or less. What's your experience about this matter? Do you know any other software for this purpose?

My OSs are mostly linux based, I have no windows machines, so if something for linux exists I'm happy to hear. However, I can use windows virtual machines.

 

Thank you, have a good day.

Upon research I read something that brought me some memories.... XISO!

I did remember reading about XISO format but not having a XBOX back in the day never got a clue what it was. I think the ISO i have are not XISO. I got 'em from Redump, so I think that Qwix and C-Xbox will not work, but I'll try and see what I can do.

 

Have a nice day all

Archival ISO's (those dual-layer disc images with Redump-certified MD5 hashes) can have the XDVDFS portion extracted with XDVDMulleter Beta 10.2.

Redump does not provide the actual disc images only information to check the validity of original media archival rips.

I use XDVDMulleter to extract ISOs and then transfer them over to the XBox via crosslink cable

Thank you, that's what I did in the end. Extracted 5-6 games with it and got them working. Also I created XISOs to keep in my NAS with C-Xbox and saved a lot of space ;)

I did find that tool and used it, all good ;)

You are right about redump. I'm pretty familiar with the project. Before I meant to say I got them and the hashes matched the redump dumps. Now I shrunk them and saved a lot of space, DVD-DL media is a huge beast to archive :D

 

 

Thank you all guys,

Will using XDVDMulleter to extract ISO images certified by redump provide the same compatibility as using DVD2Xbox with my legitimate copies of games? I read something about certain games needing patches to run from HDD, is that something I should be worried about if I'm using XDVDMulleter and not DVD2Xbox?

      I had one softmodded xbox for years that started activing up. The dvd drive went bad last year and 2 of my emulators snesx and the other snes one I have that forget the name to right now wouldn't load so I thought the HD was going bad. A 750GB IDE Seagate. But to my luck a new dvd drive and a new emu fixed my issue so I backed up all my data immediatly and then dropped the external and did it all again a few days later. Anyway The 1.6  xbox for the dvd drive I bought had bad caps. So I replaced them and then the Power supply died on me (Ask me no questions about poof puff bad puff of smoke adventures and bye bye IC chip and I'll tell you no lies) . Anyway then I bought another one for parts to fix that and then went down this road. Addicted to buying xboxs on offer up. Somehow now I have 6 xboxs. But this last one I got was $10 and the HD and DVD worked. Then I found my first hard mod chip inside Smart xxv3 no lcd installed but an IR . All the bios file were dead except the original, But I know nothing about a hard mod so its a whole new adventure. Glad to be here with all of you.

      Hello i have a xbox with a almost dead hard drive and a dvd drive that works barely. The previous owner performed a tsop very long ago and that's why i believe that i can boot to hexen without the hard drive, also i saw some solder residue on the pads to unlock the bios protection. (Cleaned the old solder and bridged the points again)
      I have a 1.4 with a Windbond and focus chip, the main problem that i have is that i can't move the options in the Gentoox because my only working controller seems to be a fake controller or at least the original pcb was replaced with a generic one, someone told me on the Xbox-hq forums that i can just drop the bios file on C:/Bios . Can i boot HEXEN and ftp the bios file from there? Also what bios do you recommend? I can't decide beetween evo m8 or iND-BiOS.5004.67
      Thanks for your time.
