Hello,

Just wondering if anybody else has encountered something similar. My hard drive is 250 gigabytes, xbox sees it as 23o gig but my issue is that my f drive where Ninja Premium (all packs 70ish gigs) and games (18 are 1-2 gigs, some are only 500megs) only occupy 12oish gigs, I see this by trying to delete it and then it shows me the size before confirming. I had f occupy all the leftover space with the partition tool when I copied my original drive but it just doesn't seem correct. I'd hate to redo everything, since ftp'ing takes forever. Are there any "hidden" files I should be looking for? If I do "start over" should I just do the regular formatting ie: f,g drives etc....? 

Thanks !!!!!!!

 

EDIT: Realized I posted in Hardware Mods. Could this be moved to general if not allowed. Thanks again..

The BIOS of the ogXbox only supported LBA28 access for a max 137GB unformatted HDDs.  Stock HDDs were either 8GB or 10GB drives with only the first 8GBs used.  Users of modified systems with an original 10GB drive could gain access to the remaining 2GBs (actual formatted space is less than the full 2GBs).

Updates to modified Xbox BIOSes enhanced the LBA support to pseudo LBA48 (actually only 32-bits are usable) for a maximum of 2TB. Use of the LBA48 enhanced access requires the use of the proper tools to correctly format the extended partition(s) of a new larger HDD namely XBPartitioner v1.3.  IIRC with it, the maximum size of a single partition is 1TB (927.78GB) when formatted to use 64KB clusters.

      Hey y’all,
      I softmodded og Xbox for 3 month ago and up untill today snes emulation was fine (nba jam, contra etc..), no problems and smooth.
      Today when I was playing contra iii the sound started lagging noticably -also the music and sounds scatter a bit or play twice instead of once. I tried rebooting and removing and replacing the rom.. 
      Does anyone know what the cause of this problem is? is it fixable?
      thank you so much if you’re willing to help.

      Hardmod is done on 1.6 but I still have the stock hard drive , should it be locked or is there something I need to do?  I have recently install kixxx emulator but have it in apps in the boot dash that hexen installed as I don't see how to put in emulators folder. Works fine just wrong location, how do I move into emulators folder? Still learning how this file system all works.
