I have decided to softmod my old xbox. I used action replay and installed Softmod.Installer.Deluxe.v5.01 and currently have the EvoX dashboard running. Everything seemed to have worked out great. However, the system will only read xbox games and whenever I try to put in a disc that i made and select "Play game/media from dvd" it does absolutely nothing. This disc contains some emulators. It still works if I throw in an xbox game no prob. I have tried dvd-r, cd-r, and cd-rw but I can't seem to get my box to read any of it. Shouldn't there be some way for me to just throw in a disc with any files on it, explore the disc, find the right .xbe file and load it??? My ultimate goal is to get XBMC on the system and hook it up to my network. But for some stupid reason I can't FTP to the box either. Do I need to somehow get some app like DVD2Xbox on my system. The EvoX dashboard came with no preloaded apps. Sorry to be soo broad and all over the place, but I usually can figure this stuff out. I'm just starting to get frustrated.
