Xplorer360 Beta 5
Posted by XanTium | June 27 09:52 EST

 
A new version of Xplorer360(info), a tool to read/write on your Xbox/Xbox360 HDD and Xbox360 Memcard, has been released. What's new/fixed:
* Datel Driver support! Xbox 1 and Xbox 360 memory cards that use Datel's xbreader.sys / usbio.sys drivers should now work fine.
* Full / Improved Xbox 1 memory unit support - multi-media block transfers used, great speed and compatibility boost.
* Drag and Drop support with windows shell.
* Improved Backup / Recover functionality.
* Bug that sometimes prevented backups from being recovered to their original drive fixed.
* Xbox 360 drive recovery now skips config sectors. The Xbox 360 hard disk drive has a unique signature in its starting sectors that would prevent standard SATA hard drives from being used in the Xbox 360 console, based on the sector count and serial number, among other things. This also prevents the use of different images on drives with different serial numbers. Xplorer360 now skips these sectors, so that data can be exchanged between drives without disabling 360 compatibility.
* Improved file / folder rename functionality.
* Improved Xbox 360 hard disk drive detection.

Does this mean that people can now pop in a larger sata drive in the 360. And also will the 360 still see it at the 20GB or would it see it as the full, lets say 100GB if I put a 100GB sata drive in there.

nope, it just means you can use a disk image from another 360 hdd on a different one then it was made to. My friend had the same problem without realizing that the hdd information on each image was unique.

There is still protection in the (bios?) that prevents anything from a standard 360 20gb sata drive..this application will not change that.

So i'm guessing if MS ever makes a bigger hard drive that they will have an update to make it support something bigger then then 20gb

So can you use this in conjunction with the Sata to USB Cable from teamxtender??

http://www.teamxtender.com/


So that you could transfer things like NCAA Rosters over to the 360 after you download them off the internet?? Would this work to do that with the Sata to USB cable??

Anyone verified this point does it actual allow for a larger HD to be used and seen by the 360 as >20gb?
