XBOX Softmod – Can’t copy the installer to the hard drive

I had never used an XBOX before attempting this mod, so I had a little trouble initially. When I was supposed to copy the installer from the memory card to the hard drive using the XBOX’s media manager, I was unable to copy it– the only option I had was to delete the file.

The problem was that you select the game you want from the vertical list, then you have to navigate horizontally to select the file itself. So in my case, I hit Down Down Down until I got to the installer, but I was neglecting to push Right to select the file. Once I hit Right, I was able to copy the file without incident.


  1. Dude! I was pulling my hair out trying to figure out why it wouldn’t copy… I thought I had a bum controller or something.

    Thanks for saving my ass. 🙂

  2. Thanks soooo much! I too could not figure out why i couldn't get the copy option!!!!

  3. 😀 thx for that hint…i was trying for about half an hour and couldn't figure out :S
