So I recently bought a pre soft modded xbox ( it was going to be way cheaper to do it this way.) and the only way I can run emulators is from the file menu and selecting the default.xmb, Now I have searched and I know i need to edit my sources.xml. So I go to open it up and when I do I find this.

So Just because I cant remod the xbox really and I dont want to screw it up. If somebody could explain why in mine its <sources> then <program> instead of <bookmark>. Also NOT RELATED TO THIS SECTION OF THE FORM BUT SOMEONE MIGHT KNOW THE ANSWER. The xbox wont play my original copy of fable (says the disk is damaged but it has no scratches at all on it) but, right now I am getting a halo2.iso and going to try and burn it to a dvd tonight. Just wondering if anyone knows why an original game wouldn't play.

Anyways thanks for all the help long live the xbox!

theboxhead is referring to an ancient system that was removed from XBMC ages ago. Really it looks like he's talking about bookmark or CUT files, which have nothing to do with "sources.xml" at all.

In any case, there's no good reason to be manually editing XMLs for this. Go into your programs menu within XBMC, and you should see the source list (if it jumps to a list of games straight away, press the B button once, and the source list will probably appear). Usually there's an "add source" option on the source list, though sometimes that'll be disabled; pressing the white button will reveal it in that case.

So select "add source", use the browse button to navigate to the folder that holds all your emulators, then press ok to everything. Easy. Note that you want to add the folder that holds all your emulators, and that's it; you don't need to add the specific folder for each emulator one at a time. When you open your new source, XBMC should list all your emulators on-screen.
