The one thing you want to do when you've added a larger hard drive, is to copy games from discs to the hard drive. This will significantly boost load times compared to load from discs.
There are two good ways to accomplish this, either use boXplorer/dvd2xbox for Xbox or use FTP to transfer the game files using a PC.
Turn off auto game launch if you have turned this on.
Launch boXplorer and press the right trigger button ("A" should change to "B" in the upper right corner), press the white button to bring up a menu, select "Select Drive", and select "f:\device\harddisk0\partition1" from the list. If you haven't created a "Games" directory yet, press the white button and select "New folder". Within this folder create another folder with the name of the game you are about to copy. Go into this directory. You have now choosen the destination to copy the files.
Press the left trigger button ("B" should change to "A" in the upper right corner), press the white button, select "Select Drive", and select "d:\device\cdrom0" from the list. Press the white button and select "Mark All", and once more press the white button, select "Copy", and you are confronted with wether you want to copy the files from "d:\" to "e:\games\gamename". Press both triggers and start to confirm the copy. This will take some time, all depending on how large the game is and how the type of media the game is on.

Connect to the Xbox using your favorite FTP client on the PC, and go to the "D" drive. Select all the files and transfer them over to your local hard drive. Please make sure you have enough space to store about 1-4 GB depending on the size of the game.
When it's finished, go to the "F" drive on the Xbox and create a "Games" directory if you haven't done so already. Create another directory with the name of your game. Upload the files you just transfered from the Xbox.
If you use evox, edit the evox.ini file and make sure that the following string is added in the "Games" section in the sub-section of the "Launch Menu":
AutoAddItem "f:\Games\"This makes sure that the games in "f:\games\" is automatically indexed in the "Games" menu located under the "Launch Menu" of the xvox menu system. But if you have created another file hirachy, or the evox.ini file is using different settings, you have to do the appropriate changes.
