Here is the deal I have a xbox ver 1.0 with a spiderchip mod. EvolutionX dash build 3935, western digital 250gig hd (250gig is from one of my other xbox's that have a tsop mod on it.) I had M8 bios on it but my programs (bios check, Bo-xLink, boxexplorer, dvd2xbox,px-hddloader,xbox-watch, enigmah videomode switchdisc, XBC-link,xbox FTP client, Xcommander, xToolbox,DVD-X, & XBMP) Plus my games(16games) I had backed up on my hd were not showing up and it was only reporting the hd to be a 120gig.(even after patching the M8 bios with EVtool to support LBA48) All my emulators were there with over 3000 roms which I had set up in e:\games\ (worked perfectly)
I changed to the X2 4983.67 bios and all my games are back and all apps except DvD-X & XBMP but all my emulators are gone. e:\games\ folder is there but it is empty.All my game saves from the emulator games are still there along with all the screenshots. BTW all my apps were in f:\apps\ and I used hddloader to back up all my games.
Also a few of my games don't work any more off the hard drive and most others are very glitchy and slow.(I cleared the cache)
The HD is being detected as a 225gig not as a 250 gig
I hope this is all the info needed to help figure out this problem, I tried to cover every aspect that I could think of. TIA
