I'm trying to clone my original xbox hdd to a 2tb WDEARS hdd.
I plugged in both the new hdd and xbox hdd into my pc and used xboxhdm, choosing option 1. Then I chose option 3 to clone. The new drive was detected, but the xbox drive was not. When I chose hdb, where the xbox drive should have been, the tool quit because it didn't find the drive.
I powered off, went back in under option 4, and typed atapwd to see if the xbox drive was there. It was, appearing locked. I assumed the drive must be unlocked to clone it, so I tried typing in the password in my backup hddinfo.txt file in the "Unlock with User Password" option. Rejected by drive.
I powered off, went back in under option 4, and typed unlockx. The drive doesn't appear here, either.
Does the xbox drive need to be unlocked in order to clone it to a new hdd? If so, how can I unlock the drive? I have the eeprom file and the hdd key.
