I am going to try to do a softmod on my other xbox just for kicks, I just finished xbmc update on my other...so here is a list of what I have .........
One xbox with a chip with xbmc as dash
One stock xbox (for softmod)
One Tom Clancys Splinter Cell NTSC
One m$ memory card
One hardrive Seagate 250g ST3250820A
Newest SID downloaded and unrared
PC for FTP
And a device that a usb memory stick plugs into, That can plug into a remote port on my xbox. I have a usb memory stick but my modded xbox cant read it.
My questions...
With what i got what is the easy way of getting SID and the game save onto a memory card or stick?
Is it possible to FTP SID and game save to my modded xbox then transfer them to my m$ memory card ?
After I get these on a memory card I think I good, well mabey till I get to the hardrive upgrade but will read up. I forgot how much I like tinkering with this and also everyone here is a big help Thanks Bill Smile Exclamation

Yes you can put the save files on the modded xbox and then move them to the card.

Usualy when a usb drive is formated by the xbox but refusing to show files its 1 of 2 things. 1 the memory controller on the USB is bunk, Ive had this many times. Or 2 when the files were put on the USB they were not put on as valid save files
heres my softmod video tutorial may be worthwhile for you to check it out

my modded xbox does not see them in MS dash but sees them in file manager. quick question this xbox on the first star up fires right, if I shut it down it goes 2 green lights then red green red green and wont start unless I let it sit for a bit, also every tim it starts I have to reset time/date what gives. is it even worth the trouble of softmodding ?

That means its not the proper format to be recognized as a save, if you use Action Replay it should put them on in proper save game format, if you use xplorer360 you need to mount the zip files with winmount open the folder that says UDATA and copy the numbered folder inside it should appear as a proper game save. Softmodding takes like 10 minutes max so its no real loss to try. Once its done you can always try rebuilding the MSdash and see if that helps or switch out the drive. Also opening it up and giving it a good blast with computer duster is always good Wink

If you see the same files in file manager on your modded xbox copy them to the mem card. Just use FTP to transfer the numbered folders to your XBOX and then copy them to mem card

sorry I did not get back with you but I got it about 5 mins after my post the memory card is ready, I just want to figure out what is going on with the xbox and why it only starts if it has sat for awhile as seen in my earlier post, that and go thru the manual again. Thanks
