hey peeps.
i have recently encounted a problem when backing up games to my hdd. when i copy straight from the original with dvd2xbox, unleash x's built in copy or x-toolbox. the games are using twice the amount of space two examples are
headhunter redemption and halo (pal).
i have never had this problem before so i thought it was just the values that were wrong so i experimented and tried to fill up my hdd.
but sure enough the space was gone and wasnt just an incorrect display.
When i ftp files to the drive i never have his problem and cant find any info on the scene that relates to this. ive had my box over a year and it is just starting to creep up on me
help me please smile.gif
thanx

Hmmm.. well first off, start by upgrading your bios. 4977 is really old. The latest X2 bios is 4983, and you can also use the Evox M8 and/or Ind Bios 5001
