Can an xbox be hooked up to a home pc with a usb cable or somethin?
this is a ps2 forum and i think you would get a better answer in the xbox forum here http://forums.afterdawn.com/forum_view.cfm/58 but to answer your question i beleive you need to use a crossover network cable
Im sorry, Ive bin posting ps2 questions & answers all month long & didn't relize what forum I was in
LOL. Jus to be curious ... what is a network crossover cable?
Basicly I dont wanna have to ftp games over from XBOX HD to PC
a standard network cable has all its conecting cables connected straight through e.g. pin 1 at one end is connected to pin 1 at the other pin 2 to pin 2 etc a crossover network cable has 2 wires crossed over and i beleive this is the only way to backup a xbox disc
so r u saying theres a way to backup xbox games with ftp'ing my pc or do I still have to do it like that?
or are u saying that the cable makes it so u dont need to ftp the pc
I only have 1 internet modem & its plugged into the pc, so i have no way to ftp it to my pc anyway
START A NEW THREAD IN THE XBOX SECTION YOU'LL GET WAY MORE HELP THERE!!
i'm not the best person to be asking about backing up xbox games there are lots of people in the xbox forum with alot more knoledge on how to backup xbox games than me and as far as i know the only way to backup xbox games requires you to use an crossover network cable and ftp between the xbox and your pc
if you got cable or dasl net you got the cable already lol....
i have cable not dsl but the wire i have 1 end looks like that & 1 end is built into my modem.
so basicly i have to hook 1 end to pc & other to xbox it trick it to think its using an internet connection?
or do i still need to use the internet for this transfer?
1 end to the pc one end to the xbox no net connection is needed... however you do need your xbox ip...
thanks sooo much!! I'm headed to the xbox forum now for more info
