    I have looked throught the forums and have not been able to find an answer to this question.

    Is there a way to play backup images stored on a pc's hard drive on a moded xbox with out copying the images directly to the xbox? I know it is possible to watch videos from a pc's drive but i am not sure about games.

    Thanks

    umm good q
    but why would you want to?
    just curious
    actually when you install a game on your xbox, it isnt an "image" as such, but the actual files themselves that get installed
    ie it doesnt save it as an iso etc.
    But you give a good question, I might have to try it just to see if it can be done
    I believe you can with movies, using media player/centre and routing out your connection to your pc, But not so sure about games.

    I know it is possible with movies.

    I want to try this because I have a very large (120GB) drive in my pc so i can store many games there, however i am too impatient to wait for them to copy to the xbox.

    I didnt know that xbox games got "installed", I thought they just ran from the disc.

    I would love to do this as well, my comps HD is only 20 gigs :( but I can fit way more games on that then on my stock XBOX HD.

    regarding installed, I mean if you put a xbox game onto your hdd, its not an image, but the files that go on it, the iso image is basically a disc image, once its installed, its just the same as the files you see when you ftp etc, thats how exploits, hacks , patches etc can be done with games loaded to your xbox hdd.
    Im gonna look into this though cos it does sound like a good idea (playing games from your pc via ftp)
