Well, I tried it... but the problem with plugging the drive in and out while Windows XP is running, is that my S-ATA IDE bus doesn't pickup the drive as present. So a reboot is warranted everytime.. Or hibernating my PC and then resuming from hibernation.
angerwound from 360gamesaves said he plugs his drive in and out all the time while PC is running. I don't know what he does different from me tho. Maybe his S-ATA chipset on the mobo is 0wnage or somethin.. =/
Is there some way i can rescan or refresh the IDE bus so that it picks up the 360 drive as available when I want to use it with Xplorer 360?? I tried rescanning for hardware changes on the bus channels themselves under "Device Manager" but that doesn't do jack for what I know..EDIT:
Well well.. tried it again this time, and now the darn thing works!! lol.. So I can plug in the drive all i want and unplug it without the headache of rebooting my PC or shutting it down..
One more question tho.. Can i attach and dettach the HDD from the 360 while its running?? I kinda hate to turn the 360 on/off constantly when neccessary.. I know the manual says otherwise about having to turn fthe 360 off before attaching or dettaching the HDD.. But I just thought I'd ask here.This post has been edited by Xeriak: May 21 2006, 08:16 PM
