Is it still possible to play ISOs directly from the hard drive?

    I don't have a dvd burner and I'd like to play backups of my games, but when I transfer the ISO over and follow the directions from http://forums.afterdawn.com/thread_view.cfm/264462 it just resets the system. The iso and folder both have the same filename as the title in the default.xbe file. I tried extracting and it lets me get to the main screen and even select some stuff, but then it says I have a bad disc.

    Any ideas?

    1. you do not transfer the ISO you transfer the files inside it. The Xbox will not play ISO files without having special programs installed.
    2. Easiest method is using Craxtion or Qwix to extract the ISO to a folder, then use your favorite FTP program to FTP that folder to the Xbox making sure you put it in the correct games folder.

    that is pretty much it.
