I hate waiting for games to copy to the hard drive in the 360, so is it possible to take the necessary files off of the disc on your computer, then FTP them or transfer them on a flash drive to the hard drive? I haven't tried anything yet, but I'm positive my computers drive can read the disc faster, therefore allowing faster transfers to the hard drive. Obviously this is for a jtag 360, XexMenu, blah blah blah.

Thanks!

I'm pretty sure xexmenu supports FTP. I've heard that it's a little buggy, and you might have to experiment with different clients e.g flasfxp.

I have a question, are you extracting the ISO to an external usb HDD and that's taking too long? I use xbox image browser 1.0 to extract everything to my external and it only takes like 5 minutes.

I would be interested if there was a way to stream the games off of my PC rather then extracting them all to my external HDD.

Nah, copying the files directly off of the disc to the 360 through XEX menu takes about 15-20 minutes, maybe longer, while my computer can do that in like 3 minutes, if that. Then I can copy those files to the external hard drive.

xexmenu and freestyle both support ftp and copying to/from usb drives.
feel free to delete the $SystemUpdate folder and any extra language files as necessary.

And if your copying "The Orange Box", feel free to remove Team Fortress as well, since you cant play it.

I tried ftp, its really slow especially with older versions of xex menu.
I not tried it with freeboot yet but I find it easier and faster to extract game images to an external.

maybe someone can help me with my problem. i just copied over my entire game library to my external 1tb hdd. now while all of the games did copy some didnt work. here is a list of the ones that didnt...

the orange box
left for dead 1&2

ive tried looking for title updates for the games to see if that would make it work but it didnt. do i really have to flash the firmware to get these games to work or am i missing something else?

They could be PAL versions try patching the xex within xexmenu I think the option is "patch xex"

I had a PAL game and it wouldn't work so I just patched the xex via xexmenu. I'm now playing the game so I think it will work. If it doesn't what do you have to lose? the five minutes it took to extract the iso?
