Hello. I have tried a few different ways to get my xbox to recognize my new hard drive. I built it from scratch - original casing and WD 120GB hard drive. I read that you need to format it to FAT32 and then it will recognize it - that didn't work. I also read that you need to run a utility in DOS called hddhackr but I ran into errors doing that. Plus it said it's not compatible or I have to do it manually for a 120GB drive. Is there a tutorial somewhere that is pretty straight-forward explaining how to do this? All I want to do is have it recognized and then I can format it on my system. Thanks in advance.

Thanks for the link and tutorial. Got the xbox to find the drive but only 20GB. It is a 120GB hard drive. It says I need to "dump sectors 16-22 manually with a tool like winhex and save that as my hddss.bin. Can someone explain what this means? I have used winhex before. Thanks.

You need a 120gb hddss.bin to flash to the hard drive.

Thanks for all your help everyone. I found a 120gb hddss.bin online and I flashed it. It was named hddss.bin on my floppy. But still only 20GB showing on my xbox. Does the file name on the floppy need to be called 120gb hddss.bin? And then follow the same procedures as below?

Thanks.
