    I bought EA NHL 2004 and put a backup of it on my xbox. Everytime I go to play it, I just get sent back to the evox screen. Why?

    if you are running an older bios, you'll need to patch the xbe file.

    hmmm thats strange. I dont have that game personally so i dont know what the situation could be, but i've never had a problem doing an EA game before. someone will surely come along and help you out sooner or later.

    may seem a silly question but have you backed up your copy properly? (you did say your backed up copy)? sometimes one silly setting and well it won't work
    how and what software did you use to back up your orignial perhaps startin from the top may help

    why didn't you just use dvd2xbox (if you have that application)on your xbox? because it installs your games on xbox and patches the games automatically
    its unusual to do it that way
