Ive just tried FTPing and failing epicly.
You really should try to get FTPing sorted, it is the easiest way of getting stuff from PC to Xbox and visa-versa.
As long as you're using a cross-over cable for direct connection or a standard cable via a router there's not usually much to go wrong. Just a few setting on your PC and Xbox to change maybe and Bob's your uncle.
Only thing you'll find is that most of the recommended FTP Clients (like the twitchy FileZilla) have a GUI about as newbie unfriendly as can be thought up by human mind.
