Ok, here's my set up. A PC with 10/100 network card connected to an xbox with a crossover cable (?), no hub or switch involved, direct connection.

I've got the matrix installed and have swapped out the HDD for an 80gig alternative.

Now, off I go to the local video store, rent a couple of games and now want to copy them to the HDD for later play. I've heard rumours that it can take ages to copy the files across from PC to xbox.

What's the quickest way for me to get them onto my HDD?

Cheers!


I presume that program is lots faster than PC --> Xbox?

Actually, stans to reason, why bother with Xbox --> PC --> Xbox again!

Nice one!

About how long does it take to copy a game to HDD using boxplorer? I know it depends on the amount of data on the disc but lets say on average, a rough estimate.

Thanks!

xbcopy is another way to do what you're trying to do. i'm not going to debate which prog is better, i'll leave that up to you. beerchug.gif

Not to start a debate, but I like boXeplorer. You can name your directories whatever you want before you copy.
