F drive only showing 123 gig of your memory ?

if you have Aid 3.10 disk use it to format a G drive then you will find the rest in there.... ( make shure you only format a G DRIVE and nothing else)

If that dosent answer your question then give more info mate..

Did you prepare the drive useing the same menu...? (go down the menu and prepare the G drive)
It will put all the folders that you need there (games, music,apps ect.
cos you need to put your games in a games folder for them to show up mate...

cos i did what i told you and have 46 games in my g drive and can see and play them all with no probs..

Hi I have the same problem only part of my 250 gig hdd is showing up. I used the disk like mentioned above and on the disk menu it shows me having a g drive and 112 658 MB's free so I am guessing that its correct but when I boot up in XBMC and go to file explorer nothing, also flash xp and various other filemanagers to see if they showed a g drive but nothing. Could it be my bios because I have a V1.6b xbox and couldn't figure out how to flash my bios to M8+ I guess. I had followed someone's direction and tried and I got the led cycling through the colors and had to format hdd and reinstall everything from scratch so I have been nervous and was hoping that this way would work (using v3.10 I mean) thanks for help in advance.

What program did you use to format the drive..? (Xboxhdm)

And when you formated G drive with the Aid disk did you prepare it too with "prepare G drive" in the same menu...

I don't know much about that Dash (never used that b4) Im using XBMC and that works fine...

not quit shure what you can do to make it to reconize the G drive....
sorry Confused

But when you save your games to HDD you are putting them in the G games folder and not just in G Drive...
