hi. try this:-)

-You need a dashboard besides the standard Microsoft dashboard to FTP. EvolutionX and Avalaunch are the most popular.
-A direct connection between your xbox and pc via CROSSOVER CABLE. If you plan on making the connection with a ROUTER/SWITCH/HUB, then you do NOT need a crossover cable.
-An FTP Program or Internet Explorer. It's strongly suggested that you use a FTP program such as Flashfxp(my favorite).
-An xISO program such as Qwix, CloneXB, Craxtion( these are used to make xbox game iso's you do not need one of these programs if you only want to transfer files too and from your xbox)
-A burning program capable of burning isos. Nero, Alcohol 120, and DVD Decrypter.

Estabishing a connection.
You can establish a connection between your xbox and your pc by using the ethernet port in your computer, a NIC, or a hub/switch/router. If you're using your ethernet port or a NIC, you need to edit your LAN properties. Go to your LAN, and then choose TCIP/IP, and click properties. Choose "Use this I.P. Address"

And type in this:

I.P.-192.168.0.1
Subnet Mask-255.255.255.0
If you have a router/switch/hub, then edit your settings to the same settings.

- Now make sure that your xbox IP is static.
-You can do this by going into your dashboard settings.

Xbox Ip 192.168.0.3
Subnet Mask-255.255.255.0

Now, go in FlashFXP (or whatever FTP program you have chosen), and make a new site called "XBOX" or whatever you prefer. For the I.P., type in 192.168.0.3, and for the username type xbox, and for the password type xbox, click connect and you should see folders on your xbox. any questions plz email me. cheers

hi skater joe. I understand your frustration, which dashboard are you using for your xbox?(linux, evox or avalaunch). I know for Evox there should be a key on the keyboard that says "Done" click that.

hi skater. I cant see why when you press the white button to exit it whipes clears all your settings. Maybe try just using evox if you boot into evox you shouldnt need to set avalaunch anyway .^_^.

hi jzcrazy. You are connecting your xbox to your pc sothat you can transfer files too and from the xbox, and also to allow you to use the tv streaming etc (requires a broadband connection) . If you follow the steps you really shouldt go wrong read them very carefully. Go to "connect" ( the lightening bolt) then click quiek connect. cheers

Hey guys,
I feel like I've done exactly what was described, using a crossover cable, changing my LAN settings etc. It even says I've connect to my xbox, but before any folders come up I get a message saying 550 Illegal Login.
Any ideas?
Thanks in advance.
