I am trying to get DVD2Xbox in the F folder. When I open it, there is nothing in it. I try to make a new folder, name it "apps", but nothing happens. I am using FlashFXP.

I then go into settings in evox, apparently, there is no free space in the F drive. The rest of the drives have a lot of #'s next to them. The F has the # 0.

I am severly lost from here, what do I need to do? uhh.gif

....and if it's a bigger hard drive, you'll need to format the F partition.

yes, retail HDD.

So will I be able to get DVD2Xbox onto it? Is there a certain way I can format it?

Are these stupid questions? cool.gif

Yes, if you had given enough info in the beginning we could have told you that if you have a retail WD drive you won't have any hope of ever having an F drive. A Seagate might allow you to have 2GB, but that's it. If there is no F drive, you obviously can't put anything there.

You might be able to put a game or two on E, there's probably a setting for DVD2Xbox that allows that instead of F.

Wow, I can only put one or two games, thats it? The only other to put games on the WD hard drive is to chunk it and get a new one?

a regular XBOX "needs" 8gb. If you happen to have the Seagate 10gb HD, you can format the F: partition to get the extra 2 gb it doesn't use.

I think the E:\ partition is ~4gb.. primarily for saved games. But you won't have that much save games so you can fit a game or two there depending how big the games are.

so yes, if you want to hold more games you need to get a bigger HD.
