I bought a 3rd party transfer cable from ebay- when I plugged in the hard drive and went to "memory" on the xbox, it said it needed to format it or something. There weren't any options other than to say Yes or cancel. I forget the exact working. I figured that the XBOX needed to reconfigure it so it could prepare it to transfer the files but instead it formatted it to Fat 32 - and it only shows up with 16gb of space.
I'm not positive I did anything wrong, but if I did - are there any suggestions to fix what has happened so I can use this 250gb hard drive as my primary hard drive on a non-modded system?
Well.... yes you did. FAT 32 is not the format that you should format the HDD, FAT is used only for USB storage. Also to transfer the old 20Gb to the new drive you either do it with the genuine MS software or either thru your PC.
EDIT: To reformat the HDD to original size, plug it properly on the HDD slot of your XBOX and format it from your dashboard as you should from the beginning. That should work.This post has been edited by MadMaxGR: Oct 5 2010, 08:22 AM
