So since baseball season just started I decided to get back to baseball on the console. I have a PS3, an Xbox 360, and my old original Xbox. I tried MLB The Show 2012, and MLB 2k12 and ended up returning both of them because they just didn't have close to the same gameplay that MVP 2005 had.
I tracked down my old Xbox games and whipped out my copy of MVP 2005 and fired it up. I still have a decent roster from 2006, all my old settings, and whatnot.
Naturally, I headed over here to see if there were any more recent rosters available, and sure enough, in the Xbox section there's a download for a set of rosters from 2010 made by grmpr. I figured, hey, that's good enough and better than the 2006 rosters I have, and maybe I can even use them as a base to make 2012 rosters.
Herein lies the problem. I have Windows Vista on my computer, and the mechanism that I always used to get xbox files onto my memory card off of my PC was action replay. I still have my action replay USB cradle, a memory card, and the original software CD, so I figured I was golden.
Several hours later, and after doing much research, it seems that action replay doesn't work for any version of windows after XP. The software loads fine, and I can get the game save into the action replay window, but when I plug in the cradle with memory card it doesn't read it. After navigating to the device manager, it seems that it is being listed under Unknown Devices rather than under USB Devices. It simply just isn't recognizing that the cradle is a USB device at all.
A simple workaround would be to just find someone with a windows version earlier than vista, but I don't know anyone offhand that does, and I don't have access to a copy of XP to even install it virtually for the purposes of using action replay.
So my question is, how the hell can I get these rosters onto my xbox? I've downloaded a program called xplorer 360 beta 6 that is supposed to work with original xbox memory cards as well, but it has the same problem as it doesn't recognize the action replay cradle/memory card. If it helps, my xbox is soft-modded. Is my only option going to be using an FTP? Because I haven't transferred files to my xbox that way for 7 years and 2 computers ago, and I'm not trying to blow up this computer. If so, I would need a crossover cable to connect my xbox directly to my PC because I don't use a router (i just plug directly into the modem).
And don't say just get the PC version, because the cheapest I've seen it was like 45 bucks used online and I'm not paying that much for a 7 year old game, and I don't like playing sports games on my PC, never have.
Sorry if this seems ranty, been dealing with this problem for a couple days now and it's driving me nuts.
