did you name the folder `G Game´ or just `Games´ cos i think the dash will only look for folders that have the name (Games......)

For EvoX there is a .ini file in the root of C: which you can edit to tell the Xbox where to search for games. Mine currently set to:

E:\Games
F:\Games
G:\Games

After that, bingo, all the games appear.

i will also try to re install evox, it asks me for large e+f or xlarge e+F+G...I have e, f g but I read somewhere that that is only for drives over 300gig( i am using a 250)...Also when I reinstall do I have to dump the games I already have on. I tried with larger e+f+g and it came up error so I pressed ok and it said fininshed, I dont think it did anything and it still didnt fix my issue. Just so everyone is clearer on my issue, the game showes up on G and I can play it from game manaager but it does not show up in the main menu where you choose to play game from hard drive.

I believe the file you are looking for is called "evox.ini" or evoxdash.ini"

Ok, file is called evox.ini and is in the root of C:

In that file, about two thirds of the way down, there contains the section that specifies the locations of games to be displayed on the main screen. I'll show you what mine says.

[Menu]

Section "Play Games From Hard Drive"

Line "-Games on Hard Drive-"
AutoAddItem "E:\Games"
AutoAddItem "F:\Games"
AutoAddItem "G:\Games"
SortAll

If yours doesn't say G:\Games then add it in. All games then located in that folder will appear in the "Play Games from Hard Drive" folder.

the file you are looking for is configure.xml and it will look like the pic the in the red square is what you need to edit. It will be in the same drive as your dash. not always C.

It was already there, I did not have to make it myself. It is spelled with a capital, you still think I should rename it , even though its already spelled corectly?
