I have an xbox with a Xenium Ice and a retail harddrive. When I go into a file manager or ftp to my xbox shows 0 kb in my f drive yet it shows no files... What is wrong?

Retail drive doesn't have F:\ unless you partition it and format it wink.gif

First you'll need to find out what model of stock HDD you have. I don't know if the Xenium OS tells you anywhere, but I go to the options menu in Avalaunch and I look at the model number of the HDD.

If it's WDC something, then you have an 8GB HDD and can't get a F drive.
If it begins with ST130 something, then you have a 10GB drive, and can get an F drive around 2GB.

Follow this tut to format your F drive. Or I believe Xenium OS can format it for you.

Not to familier with your type of mod chip but if it has a on\off switch then yes you can go on live.

Make sure you lock your new hdd in order to boot to the M$ dashboard.

Hope this helps.

I have heard there are rumors that M$ has a database of hdd #s and when you go on xbl with a bigger hdd and the # isn't on the list they will ban you. Is the rumor true????
+I saw the post about the list of hdd that will lock on this forum.

With the Xenium, you just add a launch item in the Xenium OS for the retail bios. There isn't a physical switch...

Make sure you upgrade your harddrive and lock it before you sign up for live and you should be fine... I suggest using a Live-Blocking mod bios as well, just to be safe wink.gif

Xecuter 4983.06 or 4983.67 are good live blocking bios's.

4983.06 = 137gb hdd or lower

4983.67 = 137gb hdd or higher

As for the live rumor I think it's just what it is a rumor, I've been playing on live for well over a year now with a 120gb hdd in my xbox and haven't had any problems connecting or getting banned.

Thanks for the bios info but what do they exactly do? Also, Have you played Halo 2 on xbl with the 120g hdd because I think thats the only game that does what the rumor says.

A hacked bios will let you play unsigned code on your xbox i.e backups, emulators, applications such as xbox media center, dvd2xbox, dvdx2.....etc.....etc


I've played halo 2 on live with my 120gb hdd installed in my xbox since the day it was released with no problems at all.

I still would feel safer getting a Xtender. Does anyone here have 1?
