yes you can.
best way is to open a browser window ( ie or explorer ) type xbox:xbox@"your xboxes ip here", find the folder your games are stored in, drag the folder containing the un-rared/isoed/ziped game to it. if you have your dash ini setup to auto add then it should be in your games menu. hope this helps.

The stock hdd cannot hold many games, probably 2 or 3. You can use dvd2xbox and bypass having to ftp to the computer and back also.

cheers for the replys, i haven't been on the net so sorry for slow response! so i have to turn the game into an iso, i think it already is, but i also need to zip it up? why is that?

1. An iso is the format you would convert the files into if you wanted to burn it to a disc.
2. Some emulators either support or need the roms to be in zip format.
If its an xbox game then it shouldnt be in either format. You just need to transfer the files in a folder into the approriate space on the hard drive.
