Help With Ftp To Xbox

Recommended Posts

Hello All

I have a x3 modded v1.2 xbox that i have upgraded with a 2tb drive. I am trying to ftp games to it but after a while it will stop and give me errors like file not found using flashfxp or filezilla. I have tried with static ip and dchp also with

router and direct using (crossover cable) from my pc and a laptop. The process gets to a certain point then errors, i've been trying for days with no luck. any suggestions more than welcome.

Thanks

Your HDD may not be properly formatted.  

How much data have you written to the F and / or G drives?  If over 512GB's and it errs, the wrong cluster is in use.

Run XBPartitioner and make sure it does not display "ER" next to the two extended partition sizes.

ER printed in the RED outlined area is BAD!

Thanks for the reply. Using XBpartitioner 1.3 i cannot format the drive properly  i always get ER on G partition (7).. I have tried using two different 2tb drives. I have also tried formatting only F drive (so all space to F) and still ER error. Not sure what to do next?..

What sizes are listed for F and G?

They should both be 927.78GB's and use 64KB cluster allocation.

Start XBPartitioner v1.3 and use the D-pad to highlight the line for each extended partition.  What size cluster does it show in use for each?

For a 2TB drive you cannot do F up to 137GB and G the reset.  Even with 64KB cluster allocations, the maximum size any partition can be is 1TB; thus, the equally sized split.

Verify that the bottom status message area shows "Will use 64KB cluster" for each extended partition before you execute the "Write table & Format" operation.

The White button cycles through the list of all possible operations that can be executed:

  • Write Table & Format
  • Write Table
  • Format (nnk clusters)

After the operation you want to perform is displayed in the upper right-hand corner of the screen, in most cases Write Table & Format, press the Start button to execute it.

XBP's Partition Settings

Press the A button to cycle through the typical setups.  One setup should display equally sized partitions for 6 and 7 - both 927.78GBs.  Next, use the D-pad to highlight partition 6 then 7. The bottom status box should show on the right-hand side "Will use 64 KB clusters".  Finally, press the Start button to format the extended partitions.

I think it will format both 6 and 7.  It may only do one and you'll have to go back and format the other to get the ER to go away.  After formatting both extended partitions.  Exit the program by pressing Back and any key other than Start.

Thank you for your response I have tried your suggestions above but always get ER error no matter how i try to partition the drive.  However saying that i have now tried using chimp and so far so good (format and partitioned the drive with no errors), now to ftp games and stuff over and see if all is ok.

So i have another update. I have transfered games over to my xbox and also premium ninja massive without issue. yesterday i was trying to ftp over coinops 8 massive, and it

started to give me file not found errors even though it is there.. my partitions are f+g formated showing 16KB clusters on f: and 64KB clusters on g: in XBPatitioner. What am i doing wrong? I have downloaded coinops 8 massive from a different source and will try again but i'm not sure if its a waste of time. Anyone got any thoughts??

      I'm  a noob and I need a little help please. I have softmodded my Xbox with Unleash X and now I want to hard mod it. I have burned Hexen 2018 disc image file to a disc and now I am trying to figure out how to get Xbox Bios Checker either v4 or V5 onto a disc. I burn the files to the DVD R disc but the Xbox won't recognize it.  What Files do I need to burn onto the disc? Should there be a disc image file? What am I doing wrong? Do I have to hardmod it first for this to work? I'm sorry but I have looked at so many videos and searched so many forums that now I'm lost in the forest. Please break out the crayons on this one to show me how to do this. Thank you.

      Into quite a bit of a mystery here. Sold a fellow a modded Xbox and he traded in an old busted Xbox to save a few bucks so now I'm trying to fix it. When turned on the Xbox turns off pretty quickly but then restarts immediately, then the same again, turns off and then back on a third time and then stays on and shows flashing orange and red lights (the odd time it will flash red and green just to deepen the mystery). Googling the problem results in many ppl saying it's an 'av pack' issue if the av cable is not the problem but the restarting thing tells me it's more likely a PSU issue or a bios/mod-gone-wrong problem. Pulled everything apart completely, thought I found the problem with a burnt contact point near the plugin. Re-flowed all 4 points just to be sure and no difference at all. Kept googling and found a few encouraging leads including this url Please login or register to see this link. and tried jumping that wire from the lpc pin 5. No f*ckin' joy. Also just a side note - the lpc vias are all plugged with solder (see pic) indicating that a modchip was removed at some point. Also I checked the solder points for the Xbox 1.0 TSOP and it looks like they've been done also - but the guy said he never modded that one. Thing is, the further into this I get the more convinced I am that this unit is fixable. Most people will just say eff it and chuck it or whatever but I really like to save old things if at all possible. I have included a pic of the wire I jumped (yellow wire) from the lpc pin 5 as the url tutorial suggested. The same pic also shows a mysterious blue wire that was here before I opened it. Asked the dude about the blue wire and he said no idea, never modded that one. In some of my Googling I found a post saying something about a D0 wire or DO wire described as a 'modchip enable wire', maybe this could be it? Any ideas about how to move forward or what the blue wire is for would be great, my thanks go out to anyone who has any ideas that might help,
