Hi.

I just installed Spice mod chip in an x-box v1.0. The chip seems to be working fine; green light when I boot and the Xenium OS starts up. I was at 2.01 but I was succesfully able to flash to 2.3.

I also purchased a Maxtor 160 GB drive to install. I was going to use the hard drive option from within the Xenium OS, but I couldn't figure out how I was supposed to hook up the new drive while keeping the old drive in? I know you're supposed to use the DVD cable, but the power connector for the DVD drive didn't fit on the new maxtor drive (it was the same as the power connector on the stock drive)?? What would one use to power the new drive?

Anyway, I took out the old HD and put in the new one, installed the EvoX bios and booted AID 2.1 FINAL. On load, it recognized a new HD and formatted the drive.

It doesn't, however, look like the correct size to me. Here's the breakdown on the sizes each partition is giving me:

C 499.91 MB free
E 4,881.61 MB free
F 123,408.50 MB free
G 25,256.31 MB free

I'm new to this, and not completely sure about the partitions created. Are all 160 GB being used? If not, any suggestions on how I can correct this? I've tried preparing the f: partition again in AID 2.1 and then finalizing, but I still get the same.

Help!

TIA

that sounds right. the difference is the difference between bites and bytes. basically the manufacturers give you a bigger sounding number which is still technically true

Exactly, for example on my PC i have a 300GB hard disk but truly are 278GB because are not 300GB but 300.000.000.000 bytes and 1 bytes isn't 1000kb but 1024kb

hehe you got it a backwards Razz 1 KB = 1024 bytes not 1 byte = 1024 KB but anyways i was jsut lookign at the Western Digital FAQ and they explain it as the difference between a decimal gigabyte and a binary gigabyte. a decimal gigabyte = 1,000,000,000 bytes and a binary gigabyte = 1,073,741,824 bytes. So for a 200 gig hdd in binary gigabytes take a binary gig * 200 and you get 214,748,364,900 bytes so you get a 14,748,364,900 byte difference. an almost 15 gig difference between binary and decimal. what devious bastards eh? i still find it hard to beleive they get away with such deceptive practices.
