could someone point me in the direction of where to find info on how to make/use roms. haven't been able to locate this info in the tutorial section, or i'm not using the right terminalogy to search. basically what i would like to do is burn a cd of roms, if that is possible...

You can burn a data cd full of roms but you can't use them unless you have the appropriate emulator.

Why not just put them on the E drive? How many roms could have? I have a ton of SNES/Sega/NES/GBA and they take up about 2GB. If you are looking for a way to get them over other than FTP, put what you want in a folder with boXplorer and then make it into an ISO with Qwix and then burn and pop it in.

WTF? huh.gif

If MAMEoX is the app you're aiming to use (and it AIN'T "built-in" to Evox, it just shows up as a menu item in the Evox dash because the program is on your HD...), you need to go where IOG told you and read up on MAMEoX (the website is a good place to start, though it's intermittent) to learn where to put the roms and how to run the roms from a CD.

Hell, you can make the whole package, roms and emu and all into a bootable ISO if you want, but I FULLY agree you just put them on the E drive and roll from there.

FTP into your xbox and find the MAMEoX emu folder, and dump the roms into the \roms subfolder (or anywhere else you tell MAMEoX to look). They load a LOT fast from the HD than from CD\DVD... wink.gif
