Help Needed With Xbox Hard Drive Please!
Posted 20 April 2006 - 12:55 AM
Is there any software that could allow me to read an manipulate the files in the XBOX's HD? Will a HD CLONER WORK?

If this is a softmodded xbox... I recommend just buying a cheap modchip that allows your xbox to read back-up discs (DVD-rw, CD-rw). I had the same problem and this an easy solution. Plus you can really unleash the power of your xbox with the home brew stuff available with hardmodding.
Good luck, don't stress out too much. It's only a machine .
P.S. You should have seen the stress I was under when I broke my first xbox with softmodding. I thought it was the end of the world!

There is no homebrew you can run using a hardmod but not a softmod.

If its softmodded which it sounds to be then its a lil harder. Did you backup the eeprom? You should have. If so then make a xboxhdm disc with your eeprom.bin in the eeprom folder and you c and e files in the c and e folder go to option 3 for locking/unlocking tools. Type "unlockhd -a" to unlock the drive. You can then prepare it using the rebuild option and then relock using "lockhd -a" in linux locking/unlocking.
If you didnt backup the eeprom, you will need to hotswap, assuming that the drive is in an unlocked status when it boots the error message. What error number is displayed? Hardmod/softmod???

will the Xplorer360 work for a xbox? If it does, will it work with my locked HD? This one seem as a good solution . The only thing I need to do is acces somhow the HD file to put back that default.xbe file in its place. I guess that if Xplorer360 cant work with my locked HD i'll have to get a modchip. I try anyway with Xplorer360 and let you guys know how it went. Thanks!

The only fix is to either hotswap or chip. Can you still boot games? What error message is displayed.

Read up on how to do it, but here is what you
need to do.
Power down your PC. Open the case. Preferably
connect a power source from your PC to the
Xbox HD. Have an IDE cable ready from your
PC that will connect to the Xbox HD. Set the
jumper on the Xbox HD to how you are connecting
it to your computer. If you are short on IDE cables,
unplug your CD Roms and use that one.
Boot up your PC, boot up your Xbox. After the Xbox
is up, DC the IDE cable and swap with the PC.
You should be able to run xplorer360 and find the
Dino, please correct my errors, as I am not a hotswapper.
Read the tuts and you should do fine.
After you fix this, back up your eeprom and copy the
C and E drives to your PC. Learn from your mistakes.

The Xbox HD DOES NOT unlock when your xbox boots into an error 6 or 7. The drive is usually unlocked for a short period on Xbox Errors 11, 12, 13, 16, & error 21, but Errors 11 & 12 are the preferable errors to do the hotswap. It is also unlocked inside the m$ dash, and also during gameplay.

Will hotswaping work if error 7 is displayed?
Are you soo ingonrant that you dont read the post above yours?? He clearly says the xbox hdd DOES NOT unlock when the xbox boots into error 6 or 7, so that means you cant hotswap . Error 7 is is a hdd error that means it will die soon, if it hasnt already. So your gonna need a chip and a new hdd. Get a duo2x they're like 15bucks.
