I have been trying this on my unmodded X-Box for almost 3 days now.. My problem seems to be slightly different from others on this forum. Everything goes smoothly: the xbhd unlocks; the laptop installs the driver; and it reads the xbhd in the Disk Management. But, Xplorer360 (also tried extreme 1&2) will not detect the xbhd.
I have tried it in XP SP 1,2,&3 compatibility modes run as administrator each time (my os is Win7 Ultimate). As I stated earlier, everything works with the xbhd except for the Xplorer360 programs.
Could it be the IDE/SATA to USB 2.0 adapter I am using? It is the same adapter I used on my X-Box 360 a couple years ago (same laptop, too).
Edit: Hmmm, my bad. I wanted to put this in "Duplicating Kingroach's Ndure Script Effects With Xplorer360" post by X-S Messiah.
Just went through all this crap last week for the first time, i also had a hard time finding updated support
I was unable to get Xplorer360 to work on my PC (win7 64). I ended up installing Oracle VM Virtualbox, running a virtual Windows XP on my computer, and transferring the file to my memory card via homemade usb-to-xbox controller. I used the official Action Replay software to do so. This was the only way i could access the memory card whatsoever
It was a pain in the ass, but it worked. I then used Krayzie's Mech Assault softmod hack to perform the mod
I also had to use an old PC to do the hard drive prep (for a hard drive swap). I used XboxHDM 1.9 and made a linux boot disc using a clean, stock version of the Xbox dash to load onto the drive. Had way too much trouble trying to copy the C and E drives from my original modded drive
Hope this helps
