    Xbox - XBMC - Help

    Hi there, i wonder if anyone could help me.
    I have recently brought an original xbox to try and put xbmx on it.

    At the moment i have the splinter cell game needed and a "FAT32" usb memory stick.
    Am i right in thinking the only the other thing i will need is a usb converter lead thing?

    I am looking at ebay and item number 360182773631 would this do the trick in transferring files from my usb stick?

    thanks in advance

    Not sure about doing it that way, i did it using Action replay, was real easy.

    Sure somebody would be able to help though

    That ought to work.

    I also used the Action Replay kit, but accidentally formatted the xbox memory card :oops: so ended up using the usb-technique, even though I was actually using the xbox card.

    Am definitely not an expert though, so hopefully someone else will also confirm this is what you need - or correct me if I've got it wrong!!

    The other thing you need is the softmod/hacked splinter cell save software

    You know you need to soft mod it then put XBMC on right, they are seperate tasks.

    I used Splinter Cell and Action Replay to soft-mod it. Then used AID to install XBMC

    Also, if you want XBMC as your main dash you have to do the .XBE shortcut from within your C directory.

    Actually you just need to create E:\ DASH and put the xbmc files inside or whatever default dash you want to use

    damn i am stuck.

    i have changed the usb stick to work with action replay using the action replay drivers.

    but when i open the action replay it doesnt show the mem card, it has an error on the action replay system tray icon saying "usb failed to enumerate" anyone else have this error, or any solutions. I have searched google but cant really find anything.

    I think maybe i need a better usb stick, as the one im using just came free from the PKR poker site :-D it doesnt have a manufacturer or anything to check if its on the compatiable usb's though :?

    You need to look up changing the driver inf file which tells your computer what your memory card is called. When done correctly you can use your or any memory card with action replay.

    Then manual install the driver again.

    Yea i followed this guide: forums.afterdawn.com/thr…329

    I brought one of the sticks which was on the "compatable" list and still couldnt get it to work. It was weird i managed to change the drivers so it was recognised when i opened the action replay software but when i tried to transfer the files it said "not enough space on the memory card" ?
