Ok I decided to give this a try.
I messed up my first memory card so i had to go buy another one. I am glad i messed up the first one becasue i was able to make a adpater to let me have the memory card slot pins outside the case. See pic below.
Here is a pic of it with a femlae usb port attached to it. (the xbox will do its little circle thing like it is trying to find a drive but it will not find a hardrive attached to it or a thumbdrive)
I then went out and bought a new memory card and wired it the same way but this one still has the chip inside of the shell. Here is the pic of it.
I then used the pin layout descibed by Rustmonkey here
I also downloaded the driver from Silentwatcher's post here
I hooked up the memory card to my computer like this
and it found a xbox sercurity thing and a gerneric memory card. Here is the pic of the xbox sercurity thing.
. If you look further up under my drives you will see the memory card. I forced it to used the driver. I really dont know how, i installed the driver and played with it for a while. If anybody needs a indept detail guide, i will hook it up to another computer and try to amke a guide with screen shots.
After i got it hooked up i was aked to format the drive.
I did and i was able to put files on it. BUT the second i put it back in the xbox and then put it back in my computer it asked me to reformat it. I alos put a profile on the memory card and then stuck it in my computer. Formated the card and when i put the card back in the xbox the profile was still there. That was strange to me. I think the profiles are stored on a different chip because i have 61.1 mbs free after i format the card. I hope this is a start to anybody that knows more about the sercurity ship on the card.
I have a jump drive that has a 256 mb smasung chip on it. I might try to replace the chip on the xbox memory card and see if i get ore memory on the card. I know this gets us nowhere but it is a start.
I might install linux and see of the format of the card is the same as the hardrive and the contents can only be read with a program that sees the format. I will need to study up more on the harddive project. I will have 10 hours of brdem at work tommrow to do it to. then i can come home and work on this some more.
Here is a pic of the memory cards device page.
Here is a pic of the memory card hooked up to the computer and the xbox at the same time ( the xbox could see the card, but the computer could not)
Im tired so im off to bed. I hope this helps and i hope we can go somewhere with this and if not. I have one mutated memory card.
EDIT: If anybody was wondering, I used terminal strips so i could change the pins to a different usb wire if i had to.This post has been edited by JoHnnyTK36: Dec 31 2005, 10:26 AM
