I downloaded the program, and i must say, the GUI interface is nice. The input boxes are intuitive and straightforward.

However, i cannot get it to work!

I have filled out the fields properly, ie, ip addresses, login/pwd, and it won't connect to my xbox.

I can get it to extract an xiso to a temp directory, but trying to extract on the fly doesn't work.

Under xbox partition i have tried "f" and "F" and "/F" and so on various combinations.

Under folder i've tried "test" "/test" "/test/" and other various combinations.

I get the error msg "request action not taken"

BTW, "test" is just a folder i created in the root dir of my F drive. Am I doing something wrong?


A good feature to add on to your program would be a "stop" button. While it was extracting a rather big game, ~4 gigs, i realized it was going to the temp dir and not the xbox. I wanted to stop it, and alas, i had to wait. It's not that big of a deal, but i'd still appreciate the ability to stop an extraction process once it starts.

Best Regards,
S

Shafted!

Thanks for trying it out and I did put some effort into the GUI to make it not only good-looking
but also as you say, intuitive.

Anyway, maybe I should have put some more effort into the readme.txt instead.

As stated in the readme.txt, you must enter an *existing* path in the Xbox partition textbox
and a nonexisting directory in the folder box.

Let's take your problem.

As I understand, there is a folder on your F partition named 'test'.

That is what you should enter in the Xbox partition textbox = F/test

In the game dir name box, you must enter a *nonexisting directory*, because this directory
you enter here, will be created by xISO xFER. So, if it already exists, you will get a
'Request not taken' error. Enter i.e the game name dir, DOA3, or something like that.

Hopefully, this will solve your problem.


As for the Cancel button, yes, I know, very stupid not to implement it, but it will come,
I assure you.

L!M!T

Ahhh, it's my fault for not reading the readme.txt file.

I did what you said to do, and it works like a charm - good job.

I noticed that when you select an ISO, the program defaults to extracting to the hdd, it could be a good idea to not have the program automatically set it, thus forcing the user to select where they want the iso to go.

I say this because after i typed in my server info, i hit extract, and was like, "why isn't the space on my F drive decreasing?" It's not a big deal, just a small insignificant suggestion.

Your program is very nice though. beerchug.gif

Maybe you can implement on the fly xbe name changing in the future? wink.gif

Cheers,
S!

Shafted!

Made the changes/additions you requested smile.gif

The v0.2b can be downloaded from [ here ]


And yes, 'on-the-fly' renaming is something I have thought to add in a future version of
xISO xFER wink.gif

It's raining in suggestions of changes/additions, I almost don't know where to start blink.gif


Anyway, glad that someone found my program to be useful!

Hey, man i just downloaded it, and it's great!

Just transfered a iso to my HDDLoader dir, and it worked like a charm.

I can't do any coding, but i can write (political science major), so if you need any help with anything, lmk.

Shafted!

Glad the program serves it's purpose! smile.gif

Well, if you think the readme file isn't clear enough, write a tutorial for it or something tongue.gif


(I'm sure to lyk if I need your assistance)

Won't be any updating tonight, or tomorrow. Gonna be partying this evening, and everyone
knows how it feels the day after... sad.gif

L!M!T,

Wonderful program. You have made my life better. I love this program. Excellent job. I do have a suggestion that would really kickass. It would be awesome to incorporate the xbe renamer program, so we can upload the iso on-the-fly and rename the game all in one program. Thanks for your hard work and dedication.

Fellas,

I can't tell you how much I appreciate the feedback!

Anyway, I'm at a friends birthday party right now, and I am trying to get myself really drunk laugh.gif

It will be implemented, I assure you that. It is not that much coding to get it done, so I guess
you can expect it in v 0.3b!

If I don't reply to your messages here, you can always contact me by using the address provided
in the 'readme.txt' (if you guys ever read it, no pun intended Shafted!) wink.gif


Gotta get going, dudes!

Have a good one!

L!M!T

Due to public demand, the XBE renaming feature has now been implemented
into xISO xFER v0.3b!

Should be up on the front page soon.

If you can't wait for the Xbox-Scene DL link, you can also get it from[ here ]

Hope it works as it should!

Out of Memory Error,

I've been using Xiso Xfer to transfer mostly small isos, under 1GB, and it's worked flawlessly.

However, i recently tried to on the fly a big iso image (DOA XVB), and it stops and gives me an out of memory error.

I'm wondering what's going on here, as i am sure it isn't the program.

My page file / temp file, is permanently set to 700 megs. Setting it so it doesn't grow or shrink helps cut down on fragmentation.

Is that the problem?

It's more of a rhetorical question, as i'll try to get it working tonight, but if someone has the answer, then by all means, chime in. Maybe someone else is having the same problem.

Shafted!,

Where/when does this error occur? Can you specify the filename of the current file that is
being extracted when this error occur, and how much RAM you got installed?

Does this also happen when extracting locally (not on-the-fly)?

I have to say this is a Godof a program, it makes it so much easier to transfer isoz to the xbox, i had already notice about the speeds being faster using this, and i carried out a test using The simpsons road rage, with yours transferring the iso was going constent 2.1mb, with Flash fxp having extracted the iso it was going on average 1.8mb so i from now on am going to use craxtion (the release that had a bug to let you go over 4.7gb multigame disks) to make a 20gb disk with loadza files, i will then use Xfer to Xfer them over to the xbox.
Cheers for this app!
