johnny, you need linux cvs with the capable XtaF support (can be found at free60)... well the filesystem's support atleast, but from what i assume, keep going with this and go get those files off of free60 and we might be going somewhere, but just to let you know, dont hook your 360 up to live, just in case of updates...
I have it connected to my satalite internet. So it's not that good for playing games, all i use it for is to see if my friends are online and downlaod demos. I'll dissconect it when i get home.
If somebody can point me to any guides with how to get the linux stuff working i would be grateful. Imagine it or not i am lazy. I also need to know what version of linux i need. I haven't used linux in years. I know shame on me but all the stuff i did for school was in windows so i used it so much and got less and less free time to mess with linux, so i just took it off.

OK i tried pluging the memory card into the xbox's usb ports via my adapted usb cord. It did its little circle thing to find a drive but nothing came up. So no go there.
Hey, go get Hex Workshop, and then installit. Fire HW up and then goto Open->Open Drive. Then do a sectordump and upload it to eg. Xbins or somewhere, then give us a link and we'll check it together

A few suggestions... if you are able to read the file structure with the Linux tools, try uploading an original XBOX gamesave to the memcard... hell try it in windows after formatting and see what happens (probabley might need to be in a UDATA folder first... or maybe just in the numbered gamesave folder). And probabley try a gamesave that is exploitable for shits and giggles. Did you actually try putting data on the card after the successful format? Like maybe a music track or something the 360 would recognize? Or even just data that your PC would recognize?
thanks and good luck!
I might just have to go out and pick up a memcard now and fiddle with this...

Stick it back in the xbox, have it format it, then try to get a dump.
HexWorkshop isn't going to be able to do the dump because windows doesn't support the FATX filesystem.
If you boot up any live distro of linux you should be able to just run "dd if=sda of=thumbdrive.bin" and get a 1:1 dump.

Is that option still present without a music file on the card? If it is not, then obviously the 360 can see the data uploaded from a computer... which means you might be able to experiment with Xbox 1 gamesaves placed in different folders...
The option is not avialible at all. With or wiithout the music file on it.
After i format the card and put it back in the xbox it now says format, i have to format it in the xbox before i can use it again in the xbox. I dont remember that being there last night when i did the experiment the first time.
Edit: im downloading linux right now, so i hope to have the raw dump up in the hour.

dd if=/dev/memory unit of=thumbdrive.bin
it says that
dd: unreconized option 'unit'
so i tried
dd if=/dev/memoryunit of=thumbdrive.bin
dd: opening '/dev/memoryunit' : No such file or directory
i then tried
dd if=/dev/"memory unit" of=thumbdrive.bin and
dd if=/dev/'memory unit' of=thumbdrive.bin
dd: opening '/dev/memory unit' : No such file or directory
i won't get to play with this till i get home from school this afternoon.
