How Can I Transfer Files From My Computer to My Xbox Hard Drive
"I am trying to softmod my original Xbox, but I need a way to transfer the game saves from my computer to my Xbox. Those are all large files, so I was wondering if I could take out my Xbox hard drive and connect it to my PC and move files into it with any file transfer program. I read some tutorials on Xbox forums, but they are too hard for me. Perhaps is there any simple way to do this?"
No. You can not take out Xbox hard drive and connect to your pc. Because your computer can not recognize the hard drive letter of Xbox.
