Using version 0.5.5

Dash is Evox - 3935
BIOS is EVOLUTIONX_V23.BIN I think, pretty old.

Here is the config file (changed some things for privacy purposes)
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------
<dvd2xbox>
<main>
<dumpdir1>e:\</dumpdir1>
<dumpdir2>e:\games\</dumpdir2>
<dumpdir3>f:\games\</dumpdir3>
<dumpdir4>f:\</dumpdir4>
<dumpdir5>g:\</dumpdir5>
<dumpdir6>g:\games\</dumpdir6>
<dumpdir7>-</dumpdir7>
<dumpdir8>-</dumpdir8>
<dumpdir9>-</dumpdir9>
</main>
<network>
<xboxip>10.10.10.21</xboxip>
<netmask>255.255.255.0</netmask>
<gateway>10.10.10.1</gateway>
<nameserver>10.10.10.70</nameserver>
<cddbip>195.37.77.133</cddbip>
</network>
<smb>
<hostname>10.10.10.9</hostname>
<username>myuser</username>
<password>mypassword</password>
<domain>mydomain</domain>
<share>ximages</share>
</smb>
</dvd2xbox>
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Now, at 10.10.10.9, I have a share called ximages. The account listed in the config, is a domain admin, and does have full permissions to the share as well as the NTFS permissions on the directory.

Also, I am making sure that the network option says YES in the settings screen for DVD2XBOX.

When I try to backup using the X button from the main DVD2XBOX screen, it fails to backup the game. Below is a sample of a few lines from Max Payne 2:

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Couldn't open destination file ximages/Max Payne 2/assets/levels/17/streams.rws
Failed to copy d:\assets\levels\17\streams.rws to ximages/Max Payne 2/assets/levels/17/streams.rws
Couldn't open destination file ximages/Max Payne 2/assets/levels/17/music.rws
Failed to copy d:\assets\levels\17\music.rws to ximages/Max Payne 2/assets/levels/17/music.rws
Couldn't open destination file ximages/Max Payne 2/assets/levels/17/taglip.dat
Failed to copy d:\assets\levels\17\taglip.dat to ximages/Max Payne 2/assets/levels/17/taglip.dat
Couldn't open destination file ximages/Max Payne 2/assets/levels/16/level.img
Failed to copy d:\assets\levels\16\level.img to ximages/Max Payne 2/assets/levels/16/level.img
Couldn't open destination file ximages/Max Payne 2/assets/levels/16/captureF.sal
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------
The real log file has an identical entry for every file on the game DVD. This will happen on any game I try.

Games will backup just fine to the HDD.

As for variations in the config I have tried, I have tried using netbios name, FQDN, and IP, for , NAMESERVER, HOSTNAME and DOMAIN, and rebooting XBOX after each attempt at a new config.

Any help is appreciated thanks.

Don't forget to insert the workgroup (here domain). try to connect to the share from another PC and if you can really write a file with this user.

I am having the same problem. I think some of my settings are not defined correctly.
This pretty much the same, so I left it intact
<main>
<dumpdir1>e:\</dumpdir1>
<dumpdir2>e:\games\</dumpdir2>
<dumpdir3>f:\games\</dumpdir3>
<dumpdir4>f:\</dumpdir4>
<dumpdir5>g:\</dumpdir5>
<dumpdir6>g:\games\</dumpdir6>
<dumpdir7>-</dumpdir7>
<dumpdir8>-</dumpdir8>
<dumpdir9>-</dumpdir9>
</main>

<network>
The IP that I assingned to the Xbox
<xboxip>192.168.1.2</xboxip>

I got this value from the router
<netmask>255.255.255.0</netmask>
Router's IP address
<gateway>192.168.1.1</gateway>

This one I am not sure. Should it be the acctual Name Server IP address that my from my ISP, or should it be the IP from the router?
<nameserver>192.168.1.1</nameserver>

Same as default
<cddbip>195.37.77.133</cddbip>
</network>

This part here is where I think I have something wrong.
<smb>

I have a computer located in a different room that is always on, which I assinged this IP add. This computer is running win2k server
<hostname>192.168.1.4</hostname>

Actual user name and password
<username>Administrator</username>
<password>password</password>

all the computers in my house are part of this workgroup
<domain>badger</domain>

Now, this is where I think I am missing something. This computer has a drive d: inside this drive there is folder named games, which any computer in the house has access to. So if am on any compuer in the house, and I type in \\192.168.1.4\d\games I have accress to the content of that folder. So given the logic that I just discrived. I used the following.
<share>192.168.1.4\d\games</share>
</smb>
After tranferring the file, I ger this error. Couldn't open destination file games/name of the files.

If someone can point where the mistake is, I would really appreciate it.
thx

WiSO, I have a domain infrastructure, so I have entered the domain info, not workgroup. However, in my post, I said I tried netbios name and FQDN (Fully Qualified Domain Name), and neither worked.

Also, of course I tried making sure the share is availabe via a PC on the network, it works fine. Guess I should have included that in the post.

Using SMB is not an issue in XBMP. It works fine in there. I know DVD2XBOX is using thier code, so I would assume it would work if it says it does in the release notes.

WiSo I see you are listed as the project Admin on the sourceforge page. Are you the primary developer? Have you tested this functionality?

Could you give us an update please.

I would be inclined to make a donation via paypal from the sourceforge page, if I could get this last peice of functionality working. This is an important feature, as it saves a step in the backup process, I am already on the XBOX so it makes since to backup to the HDD, then to an smb share for later ISO creation, rather than having to FTP into the XBOX.

Yes I'm and the only one behind dvd2xbox. I tested it on my WinXP but only with workgroups and it works. There're also some threads here which proofs that wink.gif
The information in the XML is used to build the following string:
CODE

smb://domain;username:password@hostname/share


Please be also aware that XBMP uses libsmb++ and XBMC the Samba client.
dvd2xbox uses the latter one.

The <share> tag is only looking for the share name correct?

So in my case, which is a share located on the computer 10.10.10.9, named ximages.
mine would like so?

<smb>
<hostname>10.10.10.9</hostname>
<username>administrator</username>
<password>password</password>
<domain>mydomain</domain>
<share>ximages</share>
</smb>

I am not sure what you mean about proof, are you saying there is some other threads we should read? If so would you kind enough to post those for us?

I am assuming you mean the info in the DVD2XBOX config file and that is matches up like this:

smb://mydomain;administrator:password@10.10.10.9/ximages

Not helpful. It only proofs that it runs not only on my box.

Thats right. Maybe you should try if you get XBMC to work. If not it could be an issue with the library.

mmmh, are you sure that the network works from dvd2xbox ? Are you able to use the CDDB feature? Just let the xbox ip entries empty if your dash settings work.
Thats my config:

CODE

<dvd2xbox>
<main>
 <dumpdir1>e:\</dumpdir1>
 <dumpdir2>e:\games\</dumpdir2>
 <dumpdir3>f:\games\</dumpdir3>
 <dumpdir4>f:\</dumpdir4>
 <dumpdir5>g:\</dumpdir5>
 <dumpdir6>g:\games\</dumpdir6>
 <dumpdir7>-</dumpdir7>
 <dumpdir8>-</dumpdir8>
 <dumpdir9>-</dumpdir9>
</main>
<network>
 <xboxip>-</xboxip>
 <netmask>-</netmask>
 <gateway>-</gateway>
  <nameserver>-</nameserver>
 <cddbip>195.37.77.133</cddbip>
</network>
     <smb>
 <hostname>192.168.1.20</hostname>
 <username>bla</username>
 <password>bla</password>
 <domain>pentium</domain>
 <share>Temp</share>
</smb>
</dvd2xbox>


This enables me to rip to \\192.168.1.20\Temp.
Could you please post some entries of the dvd2xbox.log ?

Thanks,
WiSo

biggrin.gif It finally worked.
Before:
Failed to copy d:\System\DM-SG3.det to d/games/Unreal Championship/System/DM-SG3.det
Couldn't open destination file d/games/Unreal Championship/System/DM-SG3.frt
Failed to copy d:\System\DM-SG3.frt to d/games/Unreal Championship/System/DM-SG3.frt
Couldn't open destination file d/games/Unreal Championship/System/DOM-Deserted.det
Failed to copy d:\System\DOM-Deserted.det to d/games/Unreal Championship/System/DOM-Deserted.det
Couldn't open destination file d/games/Unreal Championship/System/DM-Test.itt

After:
Copied d:\System\DM-SG3.est to d/games/Unreal Championship/System/DM-SG3.est
Copied d:\System\DM-SG3.det to d/games/Unreal Championship/System/DM-SG3.det
Copied d:\System\DM-SG3.frt to d/games/Unreal Championship/System/DM-SG3.frt
Copied d:\System\DOM-Deserted.det to d/games/Unreal Championship/System/DOM-Deserted.det

I am a dum ass. I forgot that I was trying on a different computer so all the settings were different. I corrected everthing and it worked.
- <smb>
<hostname>192.168.1.4</hostname>
<username>Administrator</username>
<password>password</password>
<domain>13678</domain>
<share>d/games</share>
</smb>
Thanks again for all the help.

I have network connectivity, I can stream ShoutCast from the internet, I can view items across the network on XBMP.

Can you tell me if my config looks correct for my situation from my post above?
