I v1.0 xbox with xenium ice, bios 2.3.0 an a 120gb maxtor hd.
I'v been plodding along with it like that for about a year using the latest versions of XBMC as my dash and everything has been sweet.
Anyhow, i played an AVI file on my xbox hardrive and it is corrupted. It didn't used to be corrupted, because i'v played it before many times. I'v copied it back to my computer and it is not playing properly there either.
So i'm thinking that my hard disk has developed badsectors.
I'm currently ftp'ing all 100 gigs onto my computer after which i will format my xbox harddisk on my computer too see if there are any bad sectors.
My 2 questions are, IF my HD does have bad sectors and they are marked by windows when i format it, will they still be marked when i format the harddrive again for use with my xbox?
My second question is does the xbox file system have any sort of error protection. (like on a cd with cyclic redundancy checking) ?
thanks for your help
