As far as I know there is no HDD diagnostics for the Xbox

If the drive is unlocked you could try seatools on a PC.

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

hi all new here and new to thee xbox modding, i have a tosp modded og xbox i wont to check the heath of my drive as ive noiced sum saves are not loading i have a 500GB segate sata drive in it i wont to make sure the drive is ok and it's not just a curuped file ?

take the drive out and connect it to your pc. DON'T FORMAT IT! run a free tool called crystal disk INFO(no crystal disk MARK) https://crystalmark.info/en/software/crystaldiskinfo/ and it will tell u the health of the drive and also tell u how many hours it has on it and all the start/stop cycles it has been thru. this tool will even work on a locked drive. there is also another tool called hard drive sentinel that u can use to get a slightly more detail diagnosis. u can try to clone the drive with chimp(look up youtube vids on how to do this) if it is failing.

I usually use UnleashX to see basic SMART info about a drive. I'll also look to see how many times it has been powered on in its life to get an idea of how old it is. If you're using a stock hard drive, just remember that some of them are coming up on 20 years old and hard drives don't live forever. If the drive works, then great. But backup important data you wouldn't want to lose to a PC.

      I'm trying to play Brute Force using the Cxbx-Reloaded emulator, I have the default.xbe file, but when I try to start the game, a popup window shows up and says 'Unable to determine default xbox backbuffer'. 1; What does it mean? and 2; How do I fix it.

      Hello everyone, just got myself another Xbox a couple weeks ago, 1.6 with a dead DVD Drive, $15 for console, cords, 2 S-Controllers (no breakaways 😢) and 2 games (FIFA 07 and Halo 3, lol)

      I stumbled upon my copy of Mechassault I had stashed  hopped online for a USB to XBOX adapter, and a Duke controller $20. Softmodded with Rocky5s installer!
      My DVD drive problem was solved by a friend who let me swap drives temporarily in exchange for modding his system.

      Rummaged through my old HDDs (no ide sadly, but!) I found a 2TB 3.5 drive lying about. Ordered a SATA to IDE adapter and an 80wire cable, now I have more games and emulators then I know what to do with anymore! lol

      Anyways, Thats the story of why I am here, to check out all the cool homebrew and troubleshoot anymore problems I stumble across in my journeys.

      Happy gaming guys, and long live the lil(Big?) black box!


      P.S. For anyone who might be familiar with my name, I was once a quite active member of the now dead isoZone. Hello especially to all of you that are still around the homebrew scene!
