Alright, I get the whole ISO creation thing (I have IsoMaker 2.0 for this) but I don't get how you extract the files from the actual XBOX Game disk to a folder on your computer...does anyone know how to do this, or better yet, does anyone know where there's a complete tutorial on this?

Thanks in advance.

How to network your PC and give it an IP:

What you need:
56k- one crossover cable
Cable/DSL- hub/router or switch and three RJ-45 Ethernet cables
1. For 56k: Run a Crossover Cable from your Xbox to your PC Ethernet card
2. For Cable/DSL Run a standard Ethernet cable (RJ-45) from your cable/DSL modem to you UPLINK Slot on your hub/Router. Run a RJ-45 from your hub to your Xbox, then run another from the hub to your Ethernet card. (Do not place the cords right next to each other.)
3. After that is done go to your PC desktop and right click on my network places, then click properties, then right click on High Speed, or LAN, and click properties.
4. Click verify IP address and type the following: IP Address: 192.168.000.001 Subnet: 255.255.255.000 and then default gateway:192.168.000.001 then click OK
5. By doing that you gave your computer an IP Address to always use instead of getting one automatically, so it’ll give one to the Xbox in the future.

Flash FXP:

1. Download this program from www.download.com
2. Open it up and click on “Site Manager” then click “new site”
3. Name the new site whatever you want, (My Xbox, Xbox, etc.)
4. Go to IP enter 192.168.000.004
5. The port should always be 21
6. Go to username and right xbox, and the same for your password
7. Hit the “Options” tab and click off passive mode COMPLETELY.
8. Apply, but don’t connect yet we need to give your Xbox an IP address.
9 Go to your xbox and change the ip address to what you put in flashfxp, for this 192.168.0.4 save and exit, reboot,

How to burn games:

NOTE: To legally burn a game you must own it.

1. Connect to your Xbox with Flash FXP (the site you just made)
2. Put the game you want to burn into your Xbox. I’m doing Mortal Kombat.
3. Make a folder of the name of the game
4. Open the D drive highlight all the files and folder and right click then hit transfer into that folder.
5. It should take a little bit of time for them to transfer depending on the size of the game.
6. After they are all done transferring you can now burn them to a DVD-R, DVD+R, DVD-RW, or DVD+RW.
7. Go to www.download.com and download record now max.
8. Open that up and click data burn, then click options.
9. Set PRE-MASTERING CACHE and FILE DATA and TIME to whatever you like. Larger Cache wouldn’t hurt systems with more than 256MB of RAM. Larger RAM Cache may help your burner to avoid using it’s BurnProof or JustLink or other similar technologies.
10. For CDRW Burns set RECORDING TYPE to Disk at Once (DAO), Closed. Mode1, with FILE SYSTEM TYPE set to “UDF – Up to 128 in Filename Length, any char, plus 8+3 Bridge”
11. For DVD Blank Media types set RECORDING TYPE to Track at Once (TAO), Closed or Disk at Once(DAO) Closed Depending on Burner used. FILE SYSTEM TYPE set to “UDF – Up to 128 in Filename Length, any char, plus 8+3 Bridge”
12. Find the folder that you just put the files into and copy the Files and folders INSIDE THE FOLDER, don’t copy just the one folder name “Mortal Kombat” copy everything inside of it, then paste it into the bottom part, click the red button and it’ll burn and you’ll have a game backed up
13. Burn it at 1x if you didn’t purchase you DVD burner separately and install it yourself. If you bought one and installed it yourself you can burn up to 12x.

good luck, just connect to flashfxp and drag the files from the d drive (of your xbox) onto your pc hard drive and burn them the way it says


if you haven't set up your pc and flashfxp do all three of these different tutorials if you have already connected to your thru flashfxp then just do step 3 "how to burn games"

One more question...theoretically, couldn't you just use one RJ45 cable to directly connect the computer and the XBOX? Or does that not work in this case?

Yes. With a cross over cable. That much I do know. My ? is do you have to have a DVD burner or can you use a CDRW. Are all the games DVD's?

you can use iso tools to extract the contents of isos u download and then transfer them in sections with cd-rws, but i recommend ftp, much easier

That's an EVO-X issue.

You change the IP to something static in Evo-X. Try looking up the issue in that forum, before stumbling around on your own.


Personally, I use DHCP with my router, for BOTH of my Xboxes, and let it decide what the IP is; works great.

You aren't going to backup much without Evo-X installed.

M$ doesn't equip its dashboard with an FTP server.

Obviously, unless you are aware of a secret FTP server somebody at M$ snuck into the dashboard.

You **NEED** a homebrew dashboard, such as Evo-X or NeXgen (though neXgen is buggy) to FTP things from your Xbox. These apps have FTP servers built into them, specifically for that purpose.
