oh god dude im one of the worst people to ask stuff about the xbox that has been asked before,, but fatx stuff about windows not reading it is one of the very first things that is in the hard drive tutorials.,.
like i said no offense, i feal your pain. it tooks me a while and many many times of hot swapping the hard drive to finally get it going.
ok anyways back to your ftp problem.
go into your PC.
go to your system properties, then click the hardware tab then click device manager,, then go to netowrk adapters,, then look at your network card,, then right click it and choose properties,
ok now go to the advanced tab,, or maybe your s has a settings tab,, ok look for a setting in there , it might, or usually is called adapter speed or "duplex". change it to 100mbit 1/2 duplex. see if you can transfer now. only change it to 100 mbit if your lan runs on 100mbit,, change it to 10 mbit 1/1 duplex if your lan is a 10mbit lan. you can find this out by simply moving your mouse over the network icon in your task bar, )by the clock) and it will say what the speed it.
also gimmie a name of a few files that wont transfer.
also, are you on your pc when you do this? or are you using som elame xbox ftp application to push files to your pc. (See the differnece in what im asking)
also did you try avalaunch or mxm dashboards ?
im pretty sure its your ftp client.
make sure your ftp program is NOT in passive mode. xbox dont do passive mode.
other than that,, try going into Internet Explorer typing in the address of your xbox,, then go to file, "log in as" and log in as your username and p/w . ok now the IE ftp will act just like windows does. right click some stuff and choose copy,, then paste it into your hard drive where your trying to save it.
