Hello all,

i've upgraded the HDD to a 500 GB 7200 rpm SATA version..

all works fine, but when i want to upload games i get into trouble..
Unleash-X reports my F: drive as 480 GB

but XBMC wich i use as my default dashboard reports F; as 250 GB harddisk.
So when i upload my games directory of 320 GB when unleash is active, XBMC wont boot anymore

Any ideas ?

It sounds to me as if you may not have formatted the F:\ drive correctly and it is currently using 16K clusters which is good for up to 256GiB. As your HDD is 500GB and F:\, if using all available space, about 480GiB  that needs 32K cluster formatting.

So have you checked the extended partitions are correctly formatted using XBPartitioner v1.3? If you have an "ER" against partitions 6 (F) or 7(G) if used then that is likely the cause of the problem.

Do not under any circumstance try to transfer anything to that drive until you have confirmed it is correctly formatted because the reformatting necessary will effectively wipe it.

XBMC version is easily found: launch it and whilst on the start page (or almost any other) press R3 on the controller (right thumbstick down) to bring up the shutdown menu. One of the options there is (I) for INFO, click on that and the XBMC version will be shown at the bottom of the screen.

Some XBMC skins actually incorporate (I)INFO into the skin's own menus under System but wherever it is it shouldn't be too difficult to find.

      hi all, i have here an xbox with no harddisk of its own but i had the hdkey, so i built a basic microsoft unmodded dash and locked it with the key.
      it boots fine no problems at all, now what i want to do is put an 80 gig drive i have in it, and normally (at least before) i have run the softmod then used chimp to migrate to a bigger drive, but i was thinking can i just build an 80 gig softmod drive and lock it with its hardisk key?.
      that would save messing around with the softmod and swapping drives, i could just build a drive and bung it in, iv'e done it with hardmods before but they had unlocked drives,  i know softmods need locking but can i leave out the middle man.
      if i could take an 80 gig softmod hardisk image i have and lock it to this xbox it would save some time.

      Hi, so I decided to update my softmod using Rocky5 softmod update v1.1.7 all good apart from I'm only getting 45Gb on drive F and no drive G 🙄 it's a v1. 2 xbox with a 150Gb hard drive with Null Eprom.  What's the best plan off attack, can I just use xbpartitioner and format F and create a partition G. I don't mind loosing what's on the HD.  I have all the installer disks, any ideas please guys I would really appreciate your advice.
