Reading/Extracting an Unlocked XBox Hdd On a Pc?

Recommended Posts

I have two 2TB drives that are both unlocked (I use them on my TSOP Xbox). Is there a Windows application that can read the drives, and extract files/folders from them? I prefer to be able to extract files/folders, but if I have to, I would consider a backup file, as long as a backup can be extractable.
 
I tried Party Buffalo, but it doesn't see my Xbox HDD that is attached to my USB 3.0 HDD dock. I am considering making a .img fe with HDD RAW Copy, but can the resulting .img file be opened/files and folders extracted?

I believe Explorer360 can work with the hard drive. No idea what version, whether it needs to be the latest version, or an older version sorry.

xplorer360 wont work because even the extreme2 version has a limit on what size hdd can be read I believe. Can try Horizon or Velocity-master. If you are hotswapping though its very hard to know what is the issue with the drive not showing up.

From what I recall, XboxHDM has a filemanager, MC - Midnight Commander, that when in Linux you can access the FATX mounted drive contents.  It allows you to copy files to/from the PC's FAT32 (possibly NTFS) mounted drive(s) and the Xbox's FATX format HDD..

I couldn't get XboxHDM USB version to recognize my Xbox HDD. I am using Windows 10.

 

Does it show that it's connected?  Menu #1

Is it unlocked? Check with menu #5.

What USB adapter are you using?

In a command prompt window, list the disk drives Windows 10 recognizes using the following wmic command:

- wmic diskdrive get model, interfacetype

What's it list under the InterfaceType column for the Xbox HDD: SCSI, IDE, or USB? 

The stock XboxHDM23USB configuration requires it to be connected as a USB device. I think some docks connect via a SCSI device driver instead of as a USB attached device.

I now have a new issue where one of my 2TB drives says the F and G partition are 0mb on my TSOP flashed v1.0 Xbox...

The BIOS must have a different LBA48 configuration than originally used to format it.

Does this 2TB HDD have the partition table written to it by XBPartitioner v1.3?

Which BIOS are you using?

I tried Xecuter 2 BIOS, and EvoX BIOS. I haven't tried IND BIOS (I am using HeXEn disc from 2016). I got this 2TB drive from someone else, so I don't know how it was prepared.

 

Maybe I will try that drive on my v1.4 Xbox - I have had good success with that.

make sure your dashboards config has F and G enabled. Mainly UnleashX. If that doesnt work you may have to use chimp to "enable extended partitions"

      Just quick intro:
      I bought the OG Xbox on Launch day and played it for years before falling out of the gaming world altogether.  I recently got back into retro gaming mostly using RPi based systems but stumbled across this site and discovered that my beloved Xbox in the attic could be used for such amazing things!  Thanks to all of you contributors that gave me a reason to dust it off and mod the crap out of it!

      I have a sofftmodded ver. 1.6 that was modded with an old flash drive I have with s.i.d. 5 on it. It works great and I don't want to format and lose all the movies,music,games etc. however i would like to null the hard drive to future proof it in case this hard drive dies so I can move to a large 2tb drive at that time .Is that possible?

      Got sent a board from an eBay seller that is FRAGGING out of the box. Many loose capacitors and I fear more underlying problems.
      I need a v1.0 or v1.1 board, as all I have lying around are single ATX power supplies.
      TSOP flashed preferred, but if not, then EEPROM extracted, if possible.
      Please PM.
