    It should not take anywhere near that long. On a connection using a wire (crossover cable) it should take about 45 minutes to an hour to transfer the whole game. On a wireless it may take an extra 15 minutes or so as it is just slightly slower. There is something in you settings that is wrong.

    (WS_FTP Pro works just like FlashFXP. It is what i prefer to use)

    you are going to have to fool with some settings most likely so that you can speed it up.

    This is how you should have flash fxp setup!

    Change your transfer settings (press F6 and hit the transfer tab). Transfer Mode should be on Auto, then click on connection, and change both buffer sizes (the two drop down menus) to 256KB each, this should allow for enough overflow in the connection time to get to the next file quickly.

    Side note: I only use flash fxp for video files, QWIX(#1 xbox app) for everything else!

    yeah, WS_FTP Pro is a great program. Much better than FlashFXP.
    Once i started using that i never went back.
