i read that thread too and i saw the reviews on that Deal Extreme adaptor
. so i bought one...and this
was my quick review
I have just started using it tonight on my 200gb SATA (7200rpm) HDD.
1st impressions are great. So much so, i am thinking of getting another one - so i can use it on my spare 500gb SATA HDD.
Give me a week with it & i'll let you know? Mind you could have had it delivered it by then
Thanks evreyone for the advice! So from what i understand
1. launch xbpartitioner 1.0
2. Split the F & G drives 60/40 (uneven split)
3. format both F&G in 32k clusters temporarily
4. Reboot xbox
5. launch xbpartitioner 1.1
6. Split the F & G partitions 50/50
7. Now format in 64k clusters
8. Check that partitions to see they are evenly split
9. Reboot and celebrate if step 8 works!?
Also whats this evox test im hearing about?
@ run088 the hard drive you recommend looks like a good deal then! its pretty cheap compared to other hard drives. Looks like ill give the 5900 RPM drive a shot. Ill also get the dealextreme adapter soon! Ill probably treat myself with this when Christmas rolls around the corner. This adapter and hard drive combo seems pretty bulletproof.
@scullc let me know how the setup works! i hope it works for you and we can finally find an adapter that generally works for the xbox!
hopefully with all this research and help i wont run into any problems!
