Does anyone manage to work in a jtag with any of these beasts?

i have a jasper jtag, 13146 dash, avatar update and all and i bought a 3tb hitavhi xl3000. i managed to format it to fat32 using fat32format (http://www.ridgecrop...fat32format.htm). xbox and fsd seem to see the disk ok, with it's full capacity etc.

however, i can't seem to be able to launch anything from the external HDD. i get the message "the game couldn't start. please try downloading the game again". from the internal (a 120gb stock MS disk) everything plays fine.

i tried launching through FSD2.0 - FSD1.2 - file manager - even through Xexmenu just launching the game's default.xex.. no luck... same message...

any ideas?? sad.gif

Well after formatting you have to make a games folder and then open wx360,open iso,extract all files form iso and make a new folder in games folder name that w/e game and then put extracted files for that game in the game folder.

Simple and easy there tuts out there it's called the internet.

Hm...

I'm surprised FAT32Format works on a 3TB drive.

I don't have one myself, but I've heard converting games to GOD containers can help with launching them from external. Maybe it's worth a go? Just get ISO2GOD from xbins.

I'm having the same problem WD Elements 2.5 TB drive. At first I formated the same way as above, but the 360 wouldnt even list the games. I did lost of searches and found that the biggest partition for FAT32 was 2TB. So I made the drive 2 partitions, one 1.75TB FAT 32 and the rest as a NTFS.
Now the 360 sees all the games but gives me the game couldn't start error. All of thes games works on my USB 120GB drive (which I ran out of space, hence the new drive).

File explorer thrugh freestyle sees all the folders and files, but it doesn't want to run the games.
Maybe it's the drive? I hate to think I spent $90 for nothing.
Any help is appreciated.

Sorry... replying to an old thread here... but I too have the same problem... I finally filled up my 2TB Seagate so I popped out and got a 3TB seagate goflex USB 3.0/2.0 and formatted it to Fat32 with GUI formatter and popped a couple 360 and xbla games on there.... the drive shows up fine in FSD and XEXMENU and once I set the game paths in FSD they showed up fine in FSD... screenshots and all... but once I try to run the games I get the 'game could not start' error and i get kicked back to NXE... tried running them from both xexmenu and FSD .... same issue... i'm thinking about bringing the drive back and getting a WD 2.5TB elements usb 2.0 drive... but i dont want to keep running into the same issue and pissing off the store.... has anyone managed to get around this issue or just settled for a smaller drive?

the only thing i haven't tried is properly formatting the dive via the xbox... and using the proper folder structure... but I didn't have to do that for the 2TB drive so i cant imagine that would solve the issue....

any tips / suggestions would be greatly appreciated... thanks folks...

Just a thought, but what build of dashlaunch are you running? I had a similar issue and updated dashlaunch, which resolved it.

Thanks for the advice.... I ran dashlaunch 2.29 but no joy.... same problem.... I actually tried putting the dashlaunch installer on the new drive and it wouldn't run.... once again I received the same error... I placed dashlaunch on my current 2TB drive and it ran fine.... so that got me thinking... I took a 4GB thumb drive and formatted it fat32... threw a small 360 game on it that wouldn't run on the 3TB and boom, it ran fine... sooooo unless there's some fix for the Seagate 3TB Goflex USB 3.0/2.0 or similiar drives I fear I am out of luck.... But I hear folks have an easier time with 2.5TB and below so i'm off to get this swapped for a WD Elements 2.5 tomorrow... I'll post my results here

Think you are correct, i seem to recall that it is a FAT32 limitation as 2TB.

hmm.. I was able to format the 3TB to FAT32 and it formatted ok to 2.72TB... but doesn't work with the JTAG of course.... 2TB eh... Well in the interest of not going back to the store a 3rd time I'll cut my loses and pick up a 2TB drive.... I'm done troubleshooting! smile.gif

Again, i'll report back with my results... but of course we all know a 2TB USB 2.0 drive should work smile.gif

Confirmed... 2TB USB 2.0 External HDD works fine with just a quick format to FAT32 and setting the folders and scan settings up in FSD... I went with Hitachi and avoided the seagate goflex w/ base adapter setup...

I guess the moral of the story is play it safe and dont be greedy... and when I burn through my next 2TB I might just have to look at deleting some stuff.... maybe tongue.gif

Sadly enuf ive been in the same boat for a few weeks now. After much googling i only found a few ppl trying to use 3tb hdds with jtag. Ofcourse no one had any luck. So can anyone actually explain why the drive formats fine, shows up fine, yet refuses to launch games? Even if i break it down into a 1 tb partition it stills shows yet fails to launch. So is it the enclosure or jus in the rebooter?

It just doesn't work.

2gb is your limit.

Splitting a bigger drive won't work.
