Hdd Raw Copy and Unlocked 500gb Xbox Drive

Recommended Posts

Hi - I have an unlocked SATA 500GB xbox drive that is nearly full with games, emulators and the like.  I want to make a backup copy of the drive using Raw Copy - any advice or instructions on how to do this?  I have a PC with a spare HDD slot and and an external drive caddy.  Any advice greatly appreciated.  Thanks.

The easiest way to lock it would be to use xboxhdm23 on your pc with a sata to usb adapter, if you don't have the adapter i believe you can use an older version that doesn't support usb.

I have the SATA drive attached via USB in an external hard drive enclosure - is that the same thing?  Any  links on how to use and lock a drive in HDM23 - I googled it and couldn't find much

All you can do is run the xboxhd.bat file and when presented with the 5 options choose number 1 to see if your device has been detected. If it has you can use the option to lock the drive. You will need a copy of your eeprom in the root xboxhdm23 folder for this to work.

      Hello, guys
      Today I updated my softmoded Xbox with Rocky5 softmod and xbmx4gamers ...everything was ok, until I started to download artwork downloader which is over 600 mb and placed it in E:
      In the same time I uploaded a game with size of 4gb by mistake in E: again instead of F:
      So, now the xbox starts green animation and flashes like to start the dashboard, but continue on black screen.
      My only suggestion is that I consumed the entire E: and on that drive  is the xbmc4gamers folder, too....I dont know, but if the dashboard need some space on start maybe that cause the black screen...any ideas to help???
      Also, is it possible to connect the hdd to a pc and xplorer360 app to erace that game from E: and to make some space on that drive???
      Any help is welcome!
      Thank you in advance!!!

      Hi folks,
      I know what you're gonna say. And you're probably right... but...
      I've just dropped about £50 (inc delivery) on a ZALMAN ZM-VE200 SE...
      This is a hard drive caddy, USB powered, with eSATA data connection, that will spoof as an optical drive, and let you mount .iso files stored on an internal SATA drive.
      It was probably a waste of money, and my 2TB drive is perfectly happy... BUT I wanna give it a go!
      Hardmodded, running EvoX m8+ (with LBA48 and F&G).
      eSATA to sata (HDD gender not mobo gender) cable ordered.
      Gonna use a SATA to IDE adapter (with a SLAVE switch).
      Gonna try leaving the OGXbox DVD drive in place (with a Xbox disc in the drive, just disconnect the IDE), and connecting the IDE to the Zalman (via the eSATA to SATA, SATA to IDE SLAVE adapter - yuk!)
      I'm gonna power the SATA to IDE adapter via a molex splitter, and power the ZALMAN via an external USB brick.
      It probably won't work, but... it... might????????
      What's your thoughts anyone?
      Wish me luck - I'll report back in a couple of months when all the cables and crap arrive from China into brexit-bound UK and when I get a couple of hours away from real life to mess around with it all...
