I won't bore anyone with the standard, introductory post, other than to say thank you to everyone on this and other forum who has helped me with my xbox repair and softmod instructions.

I ordered the parts for an hdd upgrade, amazon was so backed up I ordered most of the parts from newegg.  I will probably have them Saturday (hopefully).

The good thing is that after I replaced the drive belt for the second time in the optical drive, this time it appears the optical drive eject is working fully.  My best guess is that I stretched the belt too much when installing the belt the first time, so the replacement was still too loose.  I am glad there was two in the package purchased from eBay.

Which sata to ide card did you buy?

I have one card which is 100% flop.  

I have another card which works but now the files seems a little corrupted, as in unable to delete certain files and directory's.  

Im pretty sure I formatted correctly, I split the 2tb between F and G and 64 clusters, then formatted.

Anyhow im still messing around and it took like 3 days to ftp the stuff I wanted to the hdd.  

do you have a link to the item on ebay?  I cleaned up a few drives but one is still needing a push before it goes back in.

Good luck with it all.

I bought the startech one on amazon.  Here is the link:

I did some things wrong the first time.  At first, I don't think I expanded the f drive, so most of the drive was vacant.  I redid the copy from chimp the second time, but it all went into the F partition vs F & G.

I would up installing an app from the softmod extras disk called XBPartitioner 1.3, then I choses a recommended setting (back for helps explains the controls) to create an F & G partition.  Next I went into nkpatcher, and chose Hard drive: Populate Partitions: and chose both F: & G:  (I think this game me the standard folders for those drives back.)

I just set this up last night, so will check to see if there is any issues, but I think I did it correctly.

      Yesterday I ftp'd Conker Live and Reloaded to my Xbox v.1.0 , however the game doesn't boot up, instead it displays a message saying: "there is a problem with your disc, it may be damaged or dirty". I tried patching the game with ACL in DVD2Xbox but nothing happens, I still get the same error. Is there something more I'm not taking in account? 🙁
