Will My Sandisk Cruzer 4gb Work To Softmod?


Recommended Posts

I couldn’t say for sure, you can try it but you might have better luck with a drive that is smaller.  I’ve had success with an old PNY that is 128mb, and I’ve also had some luck with a promotional 64mb drive I got a couple of years ago.  

I didn’t have much luck with hamburger shaped usb drive that was 1gb, or a memorex drive that was 256mb.

If you have a card reader and a smaller SD card you could try that.

Basically you have 2 hurdles: 1. The Xbox needs to recognize the drive and format it,  2. The Xplorer360 software needs to be able to copy the save files to the drive from the pc.

this is an old flash drive from back in 2012. it is a none "blade" version. it's just a straight sandisk cruzer 4gb.

Plug it in the Xbox if it wants to format it then yes it will work if it reports unrecognized memory card it won't work

And have a look at FATXplorer Beta  instead of Xplorer360

And in my view just fit a modchip and be done with it.

Soft modding is like masturbating, It gets the job done but it's nothing like the real thing.

If you have a hard modded Xbox you can use that to sent the game files to the memory card via FTP instead of xplorer360 or FATXplorer.  And if you have a MS Xbox memory card that is better to use as it's 100% compatible.

If you have memory card in the controller and the login to the Xbox via FTP it will show up as a extra drive and in my case it's H drive.

you can then send the game saves to it via FTP the same as copying games to the hard drive.

Or you can FTP the game saves to E drive and then use the MS Dashboard saves manager to save them to you memory card.

Either way works .

^ In theory yes, good method, but in my experience even flash drives which work 99% of the time for transferring anything to a Xbox have issues when being written to by a Xbox.

On PC with Xplorer360 I rarely get any problems writing to any of my most used 4GB Sandisk Cruzer Blade USB 2.0 flash drives (I have three). I rarely have any problems transferring that stuff to the Xbox. But doing the reverse - anything big with lost of small files or occasionally just a large game save I'm trying to backup to the flash drive the copy will fail, occasionally multiple times.

You have to shutdown and restart each time and then, as if my magic, it'll suddenly copy without any problem.

Go figure.

      Just completed softmodding an Xbox I picked up, 500gb Sata drive installed  and tomorrow hopefully Tsoping it. 

      It's been my favourite console since release and at 46 I should probably be doing other things than farting about modding a console but......here we are. 

      So, Hello (UK)

      Not sure what happened but on startup the screen froze on the boot menu with evo x insignia.
      now It tries to start twice and either dies or flashes red green with no screen output.
      Machine is hardmod with alldin xt plus chip using lpc board ver 1.6 stock hd
      Is this a dead hd or something else?          I thought it was a bad dvd drive ( sometimes it wouldn't eject) but am not sure.
      I was planning on a 2Tb upgrade but was enjoying learning FTP into xbox of games I wanted to play first knowing I was going to need more space.
      I hope I don't have to start from scratch .
