Ive just FTPed the sims and hit and run from my box in just over two hours while when I originally FTPed from the drive on the box it took a lot less, how is this?

Did you change the way your PC and xbox are connected? Were you doing other heavy network use (i.e. dowloading lots of porn, etc.) at the time the copies were happening? Your Hard disk will slow down a bit as it gets full due to fragmentation but it shouldn't be too noticeable.

2 hours?! Ouch. Isn't that game only about 700 MB? I FXP to/from my XBox and get about 7 MB/s usually, or about 50,000+ kbps. If you are only getting 100 K/s, then you might have something set wrong.

Like what though? Have got zonealarm runing don't know if that makes a difference, its set to allow my xbox through on Firewall zones though.

I left the computer running away on its on as well, nothing else running (already got plenty of porn)

I was getting slow speeds until I read a tutorial about the slow speeds. It was a pretty crappy tutorial, since all it did was say "use FlashFXP" but it helped me jump from 100 K/s to 7+ MB/s.

Check out the tutorial (sorry, I'm too lazy to get the link) and set up an FTP server on your computer. I already had one up. Like the tutorial, I will also suggest using Serv-U FTP. It is the easiest I have found so far. Current version is 4.x.

Once you have the FTP Server working, use FlashFXP (in FXP mode, not FTP) to connect your XBox to your FTP server. Then just drag the D folder (or the contents) from the XBox connection to the FTP server folder, and that's that.

its weird, but i have my own FTP setup and have had it setup for a long time now, (ditn just set it up now to fxp to my xbox). Whenever I use flash FXP to connect to my xbox and my FTP (I use bulletproof), for some reason it wont let me FXP to my xbox. In my FTPD i have the FXP allow enabled, and i followed the tutorial but it still wont give me write access for some reason...anyone know why?

I have been using SmartFTP, which for some reason gives me a pathetic ~60k a sec. However, using internet explorer is MUCH faster, i would recommend trying that.

Just enter this (insert your IP/pass etc if different):

ftp://xbox:xbox@192.168.0.200

When you say FXP instead of FTP on FlashFXP how exactly do you do that?

I already unticked the passive mode box on Site Manager>Options

Do I need to select Download(notpass) and Upload(not pass) option on the Alternative (FXP) site to site method option through the same options screen?
