Is there anyway for me to burn some Emulators and Roms to a CDRW and then download them to my XBOX HD instead of FTP to XBOX?

If your ftp is 'too slow' then theres obviously a issue. I transfer to my xbox at 7MB/s, so putting them on a drive is more of a hassle than its worth.

I think you need to fix whats broke before you start wondering about alternatives.

If not, look up xcommander or boxplorer. Both will do the job...find a doc on it.

Yes, you can smile.gif .
Without problem.

I'm never using FTP, CDRW all the time.
You need Boxplorer to drag the foles from the Cdrw to the HD.

Ok, I have Boxplorer, how do I copy it to put it on my Hard drive.

I have read plenty and I do know how to do it but I just want to make sure before I do it. I know the question I asked was not that difficult to anwser but I am just not that smart in the field of installing Emu's and Roms to a HD. I have accomplished completing many other things to my xbox but All I asked for was a little insurance in what I was told to do. If you do not want to help me then please leave your comments to yourself, thankyou.

my system ups to the xbox @ 10mb and it DL from the xbox @ 15-20 depending of course on the file. of course i have my network down to the Subnet Mask and broadcast IP on both xbox and system. i really should have quoted the guy who posted the thread, if you are copying like say NES emu where you have tons of small shitty files... then you will see a major decress in speed and only pull about 300kbs up or down. not the wonderful 10mb like i do.


PS: to set the correct values on your network. go to this site and enter your network class and optimise your network.
