[answered] All My Games Are Gone?

Recommended Posts

So I was using DVD2XBXOX to copy over Burger King Sneak King to my HDD. It sounded like my DVD Drive was searching frantically for the data to copy over. After what seemed like maybe 10 minutes it began copying and remained at 1% for another 10 minutes. Then the console rebooted. Immediately I was like 'WTF,  that was odd." I ejected the disc and went to my games folder and they were all gone!

Booting XBpartitioner 1.3 shows a big green ER on my F partition. No games show in any dash I use but when in XBpartitioner 1.3 it shows the the data is used.

I'm at a loss here, folks, I'm considering taking out the HDD and formatting it but if it's an easy fix...

What should I do?

[Edit]

 

I just reformated partitions F and G to make one big F partition.

opps!  If much data was copied from the disk it overwrote part of what was already there corrupting files. 

The "ER" is the indication that the wrong cluster size is configured for that partition.  The drive should be reformatted in the Xbox. (ALL DATA WILL BE LOST! However, it already is.) Use XBPartitioner v1.3 to format the extended partitions to set up the correct cluster size.

Extended partition cluster sizes:

64KB clusters for up to max of 1TB partition
32KB clusters for up to max of 512GB partition
16KB clusters for up to max of 256GB partition

What size is the partition in question?  Did you have F and G?  What size is the HDD?

I'm have a 500GB Seagate Barracuda. I just used XBpartitioner 1.3 to reformat F and G and made one big F partition. I used the 32KB cluster size available. 

After doing so, run XBPartitioner v1.3 again to verify that the correct cluster size took hold. 

Sometimes the process doesn't work the first time around and defaults to the wrong cluster size.  Therefore, always verify that the correct cluster size, no "ER" displayed, after a reboot and running XBP v1.3 a second time.

Did it. Thanx for your assistance. I really do appreciate your educated advice. Most other forums I've had been boggled down with hearsay and nonsense by now.

I'm beginning to really like it around here!

      Hi all,
       
      I've recently performed a rewrite of the TSOP (EVO M8+) on my PAL console, using the Hexen CD but i am unable to run backups. I've tried the following scenarios
      Game tested: Psychonauts PAL
      Original DVD OK
      DVD2XBOX OK
      FTP or Burned DVD NOK (gets booted back to unleashX)
      Original and iso are from the same game to eliminate other variables (ISO is also PAL) but it doesn't boot.
      Any guesses of what might be wrong? 
      I'm more concerned about not being able to FTP as i wan't to remove dependencies from the hardware that can fail overtime more easily..
       
      Setup that this was tested at:
      XBOX 1.0 TSOP EVOX M8+
      Internal drive: Tested with IDE to SD card, and original HDD

      After a Tsop and 1tb HD install - I had Ninja Massive, a few Xbox games and Emulators working fine.
      This morning I go to power it on, everything looks fine but it will not Boot any of the above mentioned. Loads for a few minutes and returns me to UnleashX Dash.
      I cleared the cache and don't know what else it could be.
      Any tips or help with this is greatly appreciated ;(
