    Hi again, It took me several tries and hours of research to figure it out how to play multi discs games on my rgh/jtag (not sure)
    I could not boot it by simply transfering disc 1 content file into my internal hdd and running disc 2 default.xex like most forum say.
    For some reason I HAD to use a tool named HORIZON to do the task and that way the system won't read these files as corrupted.
    That's a trouble for a linux user like me since HORIZON is only for windows. I had to borrow a windows laptop just for that.
    I'm gonna be trying it under a virtual machine but an alternative would me ideal. Because It's kind of tedious to format a flash drive and then move files to install games since it's just like an ftp transfer.
    So do you guys know any 'new' method to skip the HORIZON part? :P

    360 content manager.
    It's the almost noob proof way of transferring DLC to your RGH/JTAG.
    It also unlocks them if their locked.
    Multi discs, Aurora and FSD have plugins that auto swaps them.

    I meant games like battlefield or gtav that have an Installation disc 1 and a second one to start and play. Because in order to play them you have to have the content folder from the first disc moved into your hdd.. and I couldn't do it without HORIZON :(

    Extract the DVD and copy it to the HDD, then boot the extracted DVD and install it.
    It's quite simple.

    ok i'm clear with that I just thought there was a simplier way to do it without using dvds nor usb thumbs. Anyway now I'm having a hard time running XBLA games. I created a directory in hdd:/xbla/[container game folder thing] just like tut. FSD menu show them but won't boot any.
    I got them working if I move them to the content folder in the hdd root but then I have to find their gameID using file manager in order to play. So having them in their xbla folder would be much more easy to find. btw thank you for your help :)

    I have try it between 1, 2, 3 and.. 8 just to be sure and the game is right in the menu but won't boot. I doesn't freeze or anything, it does nothing. I have try also with several xbla games. They appear to work only within content folder which is mixed up with other non-xbla games :( maybe i'm missing one step?

    Odd.
    You've put the Banjo game file inside a folder?
    Example being HDD1:/XBLA/Banjo Kazooie/Game file name ?

    Cause FSD should boot that without any problems.

    I've tried both ways to test:
    HDD1:/XBLA/Banjo Kazooie/000D0000/35C1CDD22DD0D4E54B858859C0052124FFFAD17958 <--does not work from XBLA menu although they are shown (tried different scan depth and resets)
    and
    HDD1:/content/0000000000000000/Banjo Kazooie/000D0000/35C1CDD22DD0D4E54B858859C0052124FFFAD17958 <---playable within file manager

    I have also tried renaming the folder to 58410954 which is the TitleID

    Hmm, Try loading me preconfigured settings.ini from the XeXMenu Live disc.
    See if that makes a difference.
