Cloning an XBox Hdd With a Dual Sata Dock?

Recommended Posts

I'm not sure if this is the correct forum but here goes...

 

What's the best way to clone a 2TB SATA Xbox HDD to another 2TB drive?

 

I have an Inateck FD2002 that is a dual SATA USB 3.0 dock, that has an offline cloning feature, but every time I try to clone my 2TB Xbox SATA HDD using the offline cloning feature, I initiate the clone function, then it briefly starts the process, but the dock restarts itself. The USB cable is not plugged into it.

 

Any help is appreciated.

 

Thanks!

Another StarTech device that's superior to other similar devices (vis-à-vis their IDE-to-SATA adapters for ogXbox HDD upgrades) so is their disk duplicator for Xbox HDD cloning.

StarTech's duplicator docks perform sector-by-sector duplication not just partitioned filesystem/file copy duplication (although the latter method of duplication is said to be faster than sector-by-sector). 

Sounds like the Inateck FD2002 does the faster filesystem duplication, not sector-by-sector which doesn't work for embedded disk drive applications like cloning a 2TB SATA HDD for the Xbox console.

StarTech sells 5 different devices so make sure the one you decide upon in fact does sector-by-sector duplication before buying. Another Startech dock with USB 2.0/eSATA connectivity is the StarTech.com SATA Hard Drive HDD Duplicator Dock - eSATA USB Hard Disk Drive Duplicator - 2.5 / 3.5-Inch Hard Drive Cloner on the same page linked above.

Works great without any issues.

This does sector by sector cloning of Xbox formatted hard drives? The description of the product from the link you sent doesn't mention sector by sector offline cloning.

ok, im not sure on this.
but cant you use chimp to clone specific partitions.
take the original drive and clone it to the 2TB,

then set up your partitions (identical to the other drive f&G or just F etc...) then chimp over ONLY the partitions you dont want to painfully FTP, (retain the original drives)

Personally i find when working with anything experimental my best friend is the original master drive.
In the past i've just cloned whatever is present and start making whatever changes i feel fit on the new drive. (ive found several cracked out soft mods that ive rescued via that method) changing anything on the stock drive scares me... i got a little gunshy after unlocking a master hdd.... so young, so dumb.

 

And when i began to edit my post i realized... this brilliant man is trying to take advantage of the incredible speed increase SATA brought to the world.

IM done, just delete me.

There are many that do sector-by-sector cloning but some of the latest generic devices only support Windows filesystem cloning. :(

If purchasing such a device for Xbox HDD cloning, verify that the device supports sector-by-sector cloning and you'll be good to go! :)

So I got my Startech SATDOCK2REU3 this xmas, I also bought the SAT2IDEADP adapter that allows me to connect IDE hdd's.

And the result is just excellent.

It cloned a 2TB xbox hdd for me and the whole process took 5-6 hours.

 

My old system was a v1.6 xbox with 2TB and a DUOX2 chip running a Evox bios.

My new cloned hdd is now running on a v1.2 xbox with 128 mb ram and a TSOP  using the ind-5004 bios.

 

The HDD i use are Seagate Barracuda ST2000DM006 7200 rpm

and Seagate Barracuda ST2000DM005 5400 rpm.

 

Later I used the sat2ideadp to make a bootable 160 gb PS2 HDD with FHDB.

I can definitely recommend this product to others if you like to do the same. :)

      My Thomson drive is apparently dead even after pot tweaking, it doesn't read. Wondering if there's a market to sell the rest of the parts, or if I should just donate it or something. It's a 1.0 system based on serial number and mfg date. 
      I'm aware of the classifieds section on here but wanted to see if there would even be any interest in something like this before posting there.

      EDIT: This item has now been sold.  Thanks to all who were interested.
      This X3 chip comes complete with solderless header, wiring, front indicator lights and bank switches, and power button interface board.  This was pulled from a working system and booted right up.  I accept PayPal and will foot the bill to ship anywhere in the US.  As listed in the title, the asking price is $100.  Thanks!
