Hi all, I was wondering if anyone could help me with formatting my xbox HDD (original 8gb) and restoring it back to how it was from the factory (MS Dashboard etc.)

At the moment it's pretty much knackered. Can't access it through ftp as no dash is loading up and I'm being instructed to contact xbox customer services in green text with error code 21.

Any help would be much appreciated as I don't want to bury my xbox just yet!

You should still be able to boot from a retail game as normal. If you can, start an exploitable game such as Splinter Cell or Mech Assault and load up the exploited save game (which you should have either on a memory card/usb stick or on the hdd). Depending on what exploit you've used, you should then be able to ftp in and fix the damage.

The gamesave has to be on the HDD, it won't work from USB.

If you don't have this then you should look at hotswapping, check topics related XboxHDM in the Softmod forums, or have a look at the DaddyJ link in my signature
