Angry FlashFXP v3.0 is broke....for xbox

WTF?

FlashFXP v3.0 is broken. I have used FlashFXP v2 for nearly 2 years to transfer files to and from xboxes. I recently updated to FlashFXP v3.0 and now it doesn't work worth a damn. It constantly disconnects while doing file tranfers (usually around 5 to 10 minutes into the transfer) when connected to an xbox. I built a PC with a 250GB drive in it specifically for upgrading and modding xboxes. There is no anti-virus or firewall programs on the system and it's not connected to the Internet. The only thing that has been done to it other than installing WinXP and some modding files is that I updated it with SP2. Maybe SP2 is the problem... I don't know. It just sucks that I have to go back to using SmartFTP (which runs fine but slower) to transfer files from my PC to the xboxes.

I've tried....with no luck....
Moving the storage drive from Secondary IDE to Primary
Enabeling "Noop" command
Slowing down the transfer speeds to as low as 1,000 kb/s
Several different Xbox's
Different LAN ports and cards on the PC (and cables)
Pulling my hair out
And cussing a lot at the PC and Xbox

I've read the post's about other people having this same problem with ver3.0 and PC to Xbox transfers.

Has anyone figured it out yet???
Any plans to fix FlashFXP???

It's sad to to such a great FTP client being outperformed by some cheap and inferior FTP clients.....

Can you please include a copy of the ftp session log..
Did you upgrade to FlashFXP v3 before or after installing SP2?

Until we can figure out your problem why not just use FlashFXP v2?

Default You read my mind.....

That's my next thought as well. I am going back to FlashFXP v2...
Sure would like a fix for v3.0 though....

Upgraded to v3.0 after installing SP2

In order for us to fix the problem we first need to understand it. At the moment I'm not sure what's going on, However if you can provide me with a copy of the ftp session log it might help explain the problem.

Are you using ZoneAlarm Firewall? This has been known to cause problems with FlashFXP. The only solution is to uninstall it, disabling it wont help.

Provided you're not using ZoneAlarm I don't recall ever seeing this type of problem before.

You've never seen this problem before? Do a search for "Xbox" and you'll come up with several post's about this problem.

This is a "clean" system... not connected to the internet, no firewall software ever installed (Zonealarm), windows firewall is disabled, No Anti-virus software, screen savers disabled and system set to "Always on". This PC has only been connected to Xboxes.

Where do I find the log report you are requesting?

You can turn on logging via Options > Preferences > Disk Based Logging, or you can copy the ftp session log from the active session by right clicking on the status window and selecting Copy to clipboard.

The reports I saw were caused by ZoneAlarm.

OK, I'll try to get a log for you ASAP. I'm ftping some files (about 40Gb) now to an Xbox using SmartFTP (sorry, it seems to be working though). As soon as it's done, I'll go back and try using FlashFXP v3 and see what we come up with. I really like FlashFXP much better than the other FTP programs out there so hopefully we can get this issue fixed.

I also have Version 3.0.2 (build 1045) Registered, Before this I tried a Version 2 from a friend. The time for a transfer PC to XBOX with the old version, same computer Pentium 4, WinXP SP2 no firewall, was less than 3 minutes. With my registered version it's near 8 minutes !!
Can you tell me where can I download Version 2 ????

Running the latest beta, I don't see any problems with XBox transfers using both XBMC and Avalaunch...

I know that some previous XBox transfer problems were caused by different buffer sizes in FlashFXP...You may want to play with that a bit...

No idea whats causing it, tried disabling everything, nothing seems to work, with firewall on it notices the network connected, but yea.

Ok, I thought I would give you guys a little time to come up with a fix. I even planned on purchasing the new version of FlashFXP as long as it started working with Xbox and SP2. Even after 6 months the latest version of FlashFXP still has no fix for the Xbox issues with freezing and dropped connections????


Sorry, but I have to say I'm very dissapointed.....
