Unhappy FlashFXP 0 byte transfer problem

sponsored links


I've been trying to transfer files from a dvd-r containing the SEGA emu + roms. However, most of the roms are transferring 0 bytes despite running fine from the DVD-r.

Curiously, there doesn't sem to be anything to distinguish them from the ones that DO trnasfer ok. (ie I've compared file sizes, characters in file names, file name lengths, etc).

Does any one have any ideas how I can acquire these files?

Many thanks Pi

Are you sure about that? I had the same problem and all the files that exceeded the fatx filename length limit were the ones that didn't go through.

However if you burn the emulator and roms to a dvd then they will play.

In the batch i had there were so many that exceeded the length limit it wasn't worth renaming (i think you have to rename within the zip file as well) its no use just renaming the zip

Hiya Nimbles,

yeah, I had the problem with file length before so that was one of the first things I checked. I also read somewhere about certain characters not being compatible with FatX so checked that. However, I cannot see any reason why some certain files transfer and others don't and I can't confirm what the files INSIDE the zip are like because I can't see them on my PC

The files I want are on a DVD that runs in my xbox - I tried using an iso tool to extract them directly from the DVD drive on my pc but when I try to open the roms directory it says there are no files inside it (despite the FlashFXP showing over 3000 when it checks the disc in the xbox!).

I can copy the DVD and the copy works fine on the xbox but I was hoping to extract the roms for use on my PC. Guess I might have to live with it.

I was just wondering if there was a way around the 0 bytes problem because if I encounter it in the future, does that mean I will be unable to transfer from the xbox DVD drive to the PC???

Many thanks,

ok you'll need this program xiso (v1.1.5) it can read xbox backups.

find it on the iso tools page at xbox-scene.

select the drive u have put the disc in and click on "read xdvd" (button looks like a magnifying glass over a disc)

select folder and then click on save dile (i think its meant to be save file )

it doesn't save the folder you select but transfers everything in that folder to the destination folder, so with something like genesis roms you may want to create a new folder somewhere on your hd before extracting them from the disc)
