    --------PLEASE READ THIS--------------------------------------------

    ok, i need help
    --im using a SanDisk micro 256mb usb to transfer the files
    --i also have an adapter for my xbox(hooks into contrler port with a female usb on the other end.
    --i have tried about 20 different programs for mechassault
    --i do have the original version
    --But every time when i plug the usb port in at my dashboard(xboxlive enabled) it says that the memory unit is corrupted and erases it.
    --i have never seen the "run linux" at the mechassault campain or in the memory tab at my dashboard.
    --every time i plug it into my computer it makes me format it.
    --i can not put any new files on to my usb without my computer formatting it. i use windows 98 or xp not sure.
    --i downloaded action replay from the net, so i have the software and the program with all the files but none of the hard ware.
    --i am very good at using mirc. i have that figured out. i fairly understand how to use flashfxp. But i am able to use it.
    --i have deleted all of my original MA saves from my xbox harddrive.
    --when i run campain i only see the profile for "mechwarrior" nothing about linux.
    Is there a certain way im suppose to turn or restart my xbox so my usb isnt erased? Or am i suppose to wait for my xbox to format the usb, if so HOW LONG?

    ---please if u know any info or have any suggestions please post or email me at
