it only lists files named "default.xbe" so rename all the dashes in the appropiate folders with the correct executable and you should be sorted.

Well thclite needs to be in the root of C unless you modify it he would have to add a line like this in his menu section of the config.xml
<Item Action="c:\thclite.xbe">THC-LITE</Item>

i'm not sure i understand what you did, which means that, yeah, you prolly did something wrong. copy/paste here everything that is between <Menu> and </Menu>.

you should never edit anything else that is not enclosed within those two tags unless you know what you are doing. everything else is configurable from within the dash itself...via the system/settings menu (the Control Panel)

i kinda didn't finish that last post...

to set your fanspeed, goto the system/settings menu (Control Panel), select system. scroll down to 'Fanspeed' and press A until you get a fanspeed you like. scroll all the way down and save and exit.

hopefully, you have a </Menu> at the end of all that.

i don't see any major problems with that menu code at first glance. so what is the problem? you don't see thc-lite in your menu?

my only suggestion at this time is to remove the blank lines and everywhere you have:
" >
delete the extra space, so that you have:
">

as my sig says, i have a bad memory, but i seem to recall having some strange menu problems one time until i removed those extra spaces.

i don't know. i don't use thclite. why don't you list the top-level contents of your C-drive here. here's mine as an example:

My C: drive contents:
-------------------------
\Audio\
\fonts\
\xboxdashdata.1012a700\
\xodash\
\evoxdash.xbe (xselect6)
\xboxdash.xbe (ms dashboard)

Your C: drive contents:
---------------------------
???
