Oh okay, thanks for clarifying
Some posts earlier made it seem like I could change the bat and use IDE on motherboard.

Also just thought I would mention that the Rosewill RX35 IDE enclosure is not compatible. I had to dig up an old AGPtek adapter to get it to work.

Thanks for the help,

First off, thank you so much for this!

Second off, I'm having an issue... I'm trying to unlock my old xbox hard drive to either A) get my old saves off of it or B) replace the eeprom with the eeprom for my new xbox. Issue is I don't have the eeprom for the old xbox hard drive. But it's a Western Digital so I want to try that WDCWDC password.

So I'm trying to get to somewhere were I can access ATAPWD . I am using JRocky's version with the menus and after I launch xboxhd it keeps taking me to this menu where I can't select the "4) --Boot to DOS with HD unlock tools--" option that every forum post I've found is directing me too. Any ideas what I am doing wrong here? Thanks again!

I did just that on a 500GB USB external drive. It stuck on this screen for the past 15 minutes. Any ideas?

Mine took about 45 minutes to finish that

Hi all, ...
However, when I choose option 2. Launch Xboxhdm it brings me to a screen that displays:

Menu = Launch xboxhdm
1. PHYSICALDRIVE1 - WDC WD50 00AAJB-00YRAO USB Device
or press "Enter" to go back.
Enter Choice:

If I hit enter I'm brought back to the main menu, if I hit 1 then enter I'm brought back to the main menu...

I'm sure it's probably something super simple I'm missing here ... any tips?...
I had the same problem. I got past it by not copying my C and E drive files to the folders. I only used the C files that were provided with the unofficial beta 3 package.

I need to know how to get files off A drive. I need my eeprom.bin from an unlocked drive and I can see it on the drive from the browser thing. But idk how to copy it to another drive so I can remake A drive and upgrade it to a bigger hdd. It also won't let me relock the drive as it says it can't find the eeprom.bin. But I assure u it's on the drive that i'm trying to lock...not in the programs files. Basically how do I copy something from qemu the virtual machine thing to my host machine.

Can I transfer games to an Xbox formatted HDD using this utility?

That's actually a good question. I tried figuring that out myself but couldn't get it. I'm sure it's possible somehow. I tried modifying the launch parameters when xboxhdm calls qemu and tried making a virtual drive/partition of a folder on my PC and mounting that as a path within xboxhdm but I couldn't get it to work.

Perhaps Rocky or ldotsfan can chime in on that.

I was under th impression it is not a good idea if the drive is beyond a specific size or cluster size, so most only use it for setting up softmods etc...

eaton zevare is on the final stages of making fatxplorer work on the original xbox and in thim it will be the fastest method to transfer games etc...

Damn that is good news. I wanna set up another 2TB drive, and FTP transferring is slow in comparison to directly writing to the HDD via SATA or USB 3.0 (I get about qqmbps tops with FTP via FlashFXP).

I hope severe releases that fatxplorer with OG Xbox compatibility soon!

Anyone knows how to get to the "unlockhd" command?

I have a linux xbox CD which had this function to unlock password protected disks, but that doesn't work with USB IDE.

I tried this xboxhdm23usb and cannot get to "unlockhd". The unlock function in this tool uses smartctl.exe and searches for eeprom.bin. But I'm trying to unlock an HDD with just password. Is that possible?

you can unlock with just a password you could get a dummy eeprom dump and pop in your hdd key? or just use a pc tool?
