    I now have my XBOX chipped and working (thanks in a large way to help on here) and I have also installed a Hard Drive of 120GB which has loads of apps and emulators etc on it

    However I am probably more overwhelmed than ever and wander if someone can (in simplest of terms) explain what I can now do with my XBOX.

    Things I am currently confused about are .....................

    <1> Playing XBOX games from the Hard Drive. Just installed Driver 3 onto the HD but it will not run - just says loading - is this a known problem.

    <2> How do I put more things on the XBOX? - I have my PC and XBOX connected to a DLINK router. I assume some sort of networ etc needs to be set up which will allow me to browse my XBOX and drag files to it. Is this correct? How would I do this?

    <3> Media Centre. It looks lovely and I have managed to get my local weather. It even tells me its raining so no need to open curtians. But what else can I do with it? I installed Kill Bill 2 onto the HD but when I want to play it it only lists it as .VOB files and plays each one seperatly. I was under the impression you could play the whole film just by selecting its time or even an icon.

    <4> Emulators. Have Mame, Snes, N64 and a Genisis one. What others are worth looking for? Can you get ones for C64 or Amiga?

    Again I apologise for all the questions but hope someone can help

    Hey Dunc

    1) Go into evo-x settings and disable the In game reset, all the latest bios's have a hardware IGR and sometimes the evo-x IGR conflicts and can stop games loading.

    2) You need this. http://www.flashfxp.com/download.php

    3) Not sure, what prog did you use to copy it onto the HDD with?

    4) C64, spectrum, Amiga, PSX, pretty much everything, check out www.xbox-emulation.co.uk

    XBMC struggles with DVD files at the moment, for it to play properly the VOB files need to be in a DVD image either a .IMG file or a .ISO file and even then it will only play the main movie it doesnt do menu navigation, as of know this is just about the only limitation of XBMC. to gather together the .vob files into an ISO file you need to use a tool like IMGTool
