basically you cant switch them while the xbox is turned on the ide bus isnt capable of 3 devices and the first hdd registers itself and doesnt just dissapear because the hdd loses power so when you switch the switch ( to the second) the box doesnt recognize the new hdd and although it shows up it reads as 0 because in the boxes view it has zero space.

is this anyway what your asking?

next time buy a 80 gig hdd and call it square.

sounds to me like everything is working, except you didn't format the f: partition on the second drive.
