Hey, i was hoping for a little help as i try to rectify my failures.
I used hddhackr, and that worked, popped 120gb into my xbox and that worked, (didnt make a profile like is said in this topic), put 20gb into my computer and into xplorer 360 xtreme batch 2, backed up the entire drive into an image and that worked, then put 120 in and restored entire image onto the drive, and that worked.
well when i plugged the 120 into the xbox, it didnt work. couldnt even recognize it. so im like ok then... and put it back into xplorer to notice any problems. didnt see anything so i went to the forums. Saw that a possible way to start over is to undo the flash to the hard drive, so i load up hddhackr -u and it cant find the hard drive although it was able to before. so i go back into xp and the xplorer 360 program to try to find a format or undo option or something, nothing i could find. so i start deleting the files from the hard drive at an attempt to destroy whatever file is making the xbox not recognize it. done with that, put it into the xbox, not working. put it back into hddhackr one last time, didnt recognize.
So to sum up my problem at the moment: Hddhackr can't recognize my drive, xbox 360 can't recognize my drive, but xplorer can. and windows xp can, i can make the hard drive into a working hard drive on my computer if i wanted to. What i want to do is pretty much just start from scratch, either right when i got the drive or right when hddhackr worked and xbox formatted it.
One thing that came to mind as i was typing this was that my bios reset in the process so im gonna go check on that in the mean time in case an option in there is preventing hddhackr from detecting the drive, but any help is greatly appreciated. I dont think my hard drive is unusable yet and i really hope i can get this working.
Edit: Well, I bought two of these hard drives, so i think im gonna format one and put it in my ps3, and use the untouched one and try once again at this hack.
