I am trying to softmod my xbox. I have the tools needed to preform the task, 1 original MechAssault game, 64mb lexar usb key and home made usb connector. The problem is, after I copy the MechInstaller-1.0 FATX-Images to the memory key I plug it into the xbox and a message comes up on the xbox saying there is a problem reading the memory card and then promptly erases the images ok the key. I can't load them to the xbox HD. I followed the instructions when I downloaded the MechInstaller-1.0 FATX-Images but it's not working! am I doing something wrong? please help

You're not doing anything wrong, you're just missing a step.
The usb must be formatted by the Xbox, what is happening is that your PC is then formatting it again.
Once the USB thumbdrive is formatted Xbox, the trick is to stop the PC from formatting by forcing it to recognize your USB when formatted by the Xbox. Whew...
I just did this, so follow this link....

Look specifically for Dangermouses post... "The AR driver need to be edited."

Use Action Replay software and follow the instructions to stop your pc from formating from the previously mentioned thread.

Shocked WoW Shocked Shark2th's posting from softmod experience Cool
You have to install the Action Replay driver. Then the pc will recognize the memory module. Follow the link Shark2th gave you. It will open up that magic door you are looking for. Cool

Ok I now have (under my device manager) USBIO controllers whith ActionReplay XBox, However When I put my Memory key into my PC my computer will not display the storage device anymore. Thus making it impossible to copy the MechInstaller-1.0 FATX-Images to it
