    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

    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

    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?
