Hi I have loads of movies on my xbox hard drive. and I would like to add DVD icons to the movie files. I have tried the other methd which is just clicking on the "IMDB" link in XBMC but it doesnt seem to work for me. - think it might have somethen to do with my internet connection.

any way I have just found out that I can manually add DVD icons to all my movie files.

ok so this is were I am up to...

I want the DVD icon for the first movie in my list F/Movies. Bloodsport.

I go to IMDB type in it in the search bar >>> save the "picture as" for the DVD cover of blood sport..

then open flashfxp connect etc

were do I need to save the bloodsport DVD cover I got from IMDB so it will appear in my list ???

If you could just give me a little step by step that would be perfect !!!

have looked at this ruff guide but its very basic and far from straight forward for first timers.
