Recovering From Xbox Hdd?
Posted 23 November 2003 - 06:15 PM
a week ago the xbox crashed while booting (error code 13 or 16) i tried with the original hdd and it works, booting from dvd starts the dashboard but it kind of stops every second and starts working again; ftping doesnt work
i conected the hdd to a pc and checked it with a tool provided by samsung, it returns: command not found, for nearly every sector,
i tried xplorer but it returns I/o error 1005 and I/o error 86
is there anyway to recover some of my data e.g. savegames or some games etc
could it be possible to create an image with hdd driver and then open it with FATXExplorer

Xbox works with original hdd installed, but will only boot to Xecuter2 screen with new hdd installed now. I can run original games with new hdd installed, but I am unable to access the hdd by ftp or other means.

Was this an evox bootable CD/DVD with network functionality? If not try that, and be sure to copy boxexploer on to it too - this way if only certain partitions are toast - you may be able to save some........
Also were the drives locked prior to this happening, or being run unlocked?

LogFile = "f:unlock.log"
Info "This function will unlock your XBOX Harddisk"
Warning "You will now unlock your XBOX harddisk and will not be able"
Warning "to boot from an original XBOX bios"
I'm assuming that this means that I was running it as unlocked (I have no need for Xbox Live - I hate playing online).
Is there any way to recover this hdd? Also, I'm not sure why it even did this - is there something I did wrong that I should avoid in the future? I have searched the forums, but can only find information on what to do when you are not using a modchip (ie 007 hack, audio/font). This is the only thread I have seen with a similar problem to mine.

So, I guess my problem now (and always was) is that everything is super slow all of a sudden. Also, the folders are still showing empty when I try to FTP. This is a problem because I would like to make DVD backups of my originals as well as have them backed up to the HDD (in case something like this, or worse, happens again), but I am unable to access the D drive through FlashFXP.
