Xbox showing garbled text after sending over games.

Post by Hodge92 » Wed Nov 01, 2017 4:54 pm

Hey guys I have a Xbox v1.6b with a Aladdin XT Plus 2. And a 500GB SATA HDD. So my issue here is that I have currently got 66 games and CoinOps 8 on my HDD. This is the 3rd time that some games have started showing up like this and I have no idea why. I've changed the HDD yesterday as I thought that was the problem but that's not the case here. Am I hitting some kind of folder or game limit? Hopefully you guys can help me!

Did you format the 500GB drive correctly with XBPartitioner v1.3?

No I just used SlaYer's to format it. What would I benefit from using XBPartitioner?

It will use the correct cluster size, I take it you just used F takes all?

Partitions over 250GB and under 500GB must be 32kb cluster size.

Load XBP1.3 and check the cluster size for your partition.

Yes the rest just use the F partition. I took a photo of what XBPartitioner is saying about my HDD. Does this look right?

As is clear from the screenshot you have 458GB allocated to the F:\drive so it must be formatted as Rocky5 suggested unless you split it to F and G with less than 250GB in each.

Chimp 261812 is the more recently updated tool (better GUI) but either that or XBPartitioner v1.3 will do the job whatever choice you make.

So before I do this, will this stop the corruption of the games?

Yes, you are getting corruption because of the cluster size is wrong for that size of partition.


Reduce the size of the F partition using the left trigger, then press start followed by Y. Now increase the size again with the R trigger and press start then Y.
( highlight the extra partition 6 first before press L trigger )

That’s you done. Restart the Xbox and load XBP again and make sure it says 32 instead of ER.

Thank you Rocky, it say's 32 now instead of ER. Hopefully this fixes the cause!
