np wink.gif

you can also format with FlashFXP . . .

CARRY OUT THE FOLLOWING
--------------------------------------

connect to xbox via FlashFXP (ftp client s/w/).

Using a FlashFXP raw command:


Formatpath DeviceHarddisk0Partition6

In the status window, you should receive a FormatKey. Highlight it to copy it and then type:

Formatdrive <the-key-value-yo-just-got>

!!! don not include <> !!!

When you are done, you can check the size of F using evo-x settings screen
if you are using original xbox hdd it should be aroung 2g.

you can use this method to format all xbox hdd partitions just change number
in the raw command . . .


Formatpath DeviceHarddisk0Partition*

this may sound stupid, but how do i tell if i have a 8 or 10gb hard drive, it doesnt say anything about the sixe on the actually hard drive, heres all this info of it:

make: seagate
CYL: 16,383
HDS: 16
SECT: 63
LBA 20,005,650

and theres a white sicker covering the whole hard drive, well the top anyway.

thanks for your help.
