Hdd Issue

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

 

I have an X3 with a 1TB inside. I formatted and prepped it with the SLayers Hybrid installer.

 

I am getting errors while trying to delete from it, write to it. Certainly the F and G partitions. Ive tried to format it with Xbox Partitioner 1.3 and that shows drive G as "ER" instead of 64 (Clusters). The split is roughly 130G and 880G. It seems just be cartain sections of the disc that are effected, as I have just copied over 30GB no problem.

 

ANy ideas on how to proceed?

Repartition the drive with XPartioner v1.3.   Decrease the size of the G partition by 1MB then increase it to the original size.  XBP doesn't always format the drive. And, you have to run the program again to get it to work. Any data written to the extended partitions will be wiped out. :(

Slayer's, HeXEn and other installer disks that use Evox or UnleashX to format the extended partitions on hard drives that required 32KB or 64KB clusters cannot do it.  I believe these replacement dashboards only support 16KB clusters; therefore, a partition's maximum size that will work properly is 256GBs.  If a partition is larger than that, you will see ER next to the partition's size in XBPartitioner.

Drives with extended partitions larger than 256GBs have to be formatted with XBPartitioner v1.3. (well not exactly, Chimp 261812 can properly allocate the space too when cloning the Xbox hard drive.)

Sometimes I find that I have to format newly resized partitions twice to get them to show up and work properly. I set the partitions up with XBPartitioner but still find that the partitions are marked with zero size in UnleashX. Use UnleashX to format such partitions, and then go into XBPartitioner again. To get XBPartitioner to give the option to reformat partitions marked ERR press the white button on your controller until "format current partition" is displayed rather than "write partition table" and then press start. Then the partitions should work properly in all dashboards.

Reducing the size worked. It is now all correclty addressed.

 

Thanks

      Hi guys,
      So a close friend's Please login or register to see this link. when he plugged it in last month so I decided to give him a spare 1.4 that I Please login or register to see this link. , put in a 2TB with all necessary parts. He purchased a Hyperkin HDMI and for some reason the there seems to be interference/noise (see pics)  on the 1.4 but not on my 1.1. Composite is fine on both. All the settings are the same on both og xboxes. Any suggestions?
      Thanks in advance...

      I'm not 100% sure where to put this, so I'll post it here. If it needs to be posted somewhere else, please let me know.
       
      I'm having this bizzare issue with Namco Museum (2001) where with some games, it will freeze upon, not entering, but exiting a game. This happens with Pole Position and Ms. Pacman. Not sure if it happens with Pac Attack or Pac Mania, I haven't unlocked those yet. For the affected games, it consistently freezes between pushing pause at the main menu of the loaded game, and after selecting exit from that pause menu. It locks the system to the point where it won't respond to the controller, but does allow for disc ejecting to the dashboard. The disc is a bit scratched, but it is in good condition, especially compared to my other games which have a LOT more damage than this copy, and have zero problems.
       
      My only idea as to what is going on here is those scratches somehow corrupted the protocol that the affected games use to exit to the main menu. Not sure if exiting mid game has the same effect.
      As I eluded to before, none of my other games have any issues loading or playing whatsoever. By that logic, I'm certain my disc drive works absolutely fine. It reads my other games and most of my CD's without any issues.
      Do you guys think I'm right in my assessment, or is there something else going on?
      I have filmed this issue and I will post it to my YouTube channel on about four days from this post, if all goes well. I will link it somehow if there's enough interest.

      I swapped in a 1TB HDD replacing my original 10GB drive.

      Is there any reason to hold on to the old hard drive at this point or can I safely recycle it?
