Xbox 360 HDD fun! - Page 2

post #11 of 18
Google up HDDHackr.
Code:
Version History
-----------------
(v1.24)
* Fixed issue with LBA 28/48-bit address comparison
* Confirmed HddHacker supports hard drives manufactured 2010
- WD Scorpio Blue Series BPVT
- WD AV-25 Series BUDT
You need any of the Scorpio disks (BPVT, BEVT~) All the WD 2.5 Scorpio disks works.

Put your original Xbox 360 HDD into a SATA port, get the program, follows with MS-DOS and how to make your USB bootable.
Boot up in MS-DOS.

Cmds
1. hddhackr D A0 HDDSS.BIN - Dumps the Xbox 360 HDD format.
2. Shutdown, switch to your WD HDD, use the same port. (Have all other hard disks disconnected, as A0 is the primary SATA port.)
3. Boot up MS-DOS again.
4.hddhackr R A0 UNDO.BIN - Makes a backup of your WD HDD firmware.
5. hddhackr C A0 - Creates 3 partitions on your drive 0-1-2 (0 contains mostly everything, partition number 1 allows you to play Xbox classic games, partition 2 saves some data here and there..)
6. hddhackr F A0 - HDDSS.BIN (from your original Xbox drive) or use UNDO.BIN if you wish to revert it.

When it's counting down to reboot, be prepared to remove your WD HDD ASAP! Else it may become corrupt.

Put your new 250GB WD (only supports up to 250GB now I think.) launch the Xbox 360; you'll have a "certified" Microsoft hard disk on 250GB.

Takes you 20 minutes, and definitely worth it instead of buying it from the store for like $100.

Hugs,
Merlena

You can get a WD Scorpio drive, up to 250 (320 now?) GB and flash it with the same boot sectors as a 360 drive and make it work.

This is true, there are many guides on websites like xbox-scene.com. The program is called HDDhackr I think it is. It will take a certain drive (WD Scorpio seems to work) and format it. Its not that big of a deal and Microsoft really does not care that much.
