First off, a big hello to all you fellow boxers. I'll try to keep this brief, I've done A LOT of reading on this and so far have been unsuccessful, so you guys are my only hope. I really want to recover the 100+ gigs of music and photos on the hd.
Details : Early version xbox, thompson drive etc. Modchip (unknown) does dual boot by holding power for 3 secs. 120gb seagate hdd.
Was working all good, this is two years ago now, unplugged it one day to take round to mates place, didn't hook it up, hooked the thing back up at home and from then on it hangs at the EVOX/microsoft screen. booting to the ms dash will give an error 21. All of the dash info was in order, and working fine the night before.
Because of the modchip I assume the drive is unlocked. I've tried Xplorer360, winhex and a bunch of others but can't read the drive. I've tried booting with a Slayer CD-R, but no joy. My next step is to try to burn to DVD-R and try that.
My router sees the xbox even though its hung on the dash and appears to give it an ip but I can't connect to it. If I can FTP to it and pull of all the data I'll the throw the box out the window straight after.
