You use Chimp from the AID disc. Final Cloud has written a tutorial on how to use the app. Look for him and there is a link for the tut underneath his sig. It's pretty self explainatory and very simple to follow.

What I would do if I was you is format the large hdd out in a xbox with mod chip (I only say this because you have to change the formatting to 32 bit clusters and I'm not sure if chimp or xboxhdm can do that). Then get the eeprom off your xbox and lock the hdd with xboxhdm. Then stick it into your xbox. I'm assuming you have a mod chipped xbox because your profile says you have an everything mod.

Well with that much space you are only making more room for storage, it would only make sense to "save your games", or install your new mega storage drive reinstall using AID and whalla' you have MEGA STORAGE, with perfer-a-blly 10,000RPM?

10,000RPM for faster write and transfer speed. they DO make HDD's with that speed!

I think this is a point trying to be made to the attention of a Modder for a long over due awareness only for Performance Issues.

Darth, he already said it was for a softmod dude. Read the posts. And yes, Chimp can change cluster size. I did it with my 250GB HDD.

If you would have looked above I said that I'm assuming he has a mod chipped xbox.

im sorry for not being more clear hehe i got 1 xbox original with AID 4.10 80GB HDD upgraded with xboxhdm (with no chips) blue LEDS a scratch pad beside it and three pennies lmao Laughing Laughing

so a 750GB cant be upgraded by xboxhdm? because i upgraded my 80GB with it and it went soo fast CHIMP is semi-new to me

Darth, chill out man. I don't know what's to prove here, but yes I did read that and if you would have read in the first place you wouldn't have had to assume. Let it go man. I'm not trying to argue with you. I'm trying to help this guy. This is the second post that you have tried to blast me on.

Its all good JP. Some of us come here to help and get help and some of us come here to see whos better than the other. I'm here to help and get helped. I don't want to argue with anyone about anything.

I don't want to go to my room though. I'll behave. I promise. Laughing

With that out of the way, did you get your fix yet or no? The topic kind of strayed. Did you try Chimp?

np bro but see what i do on my mods or upgradesis i get all info needed and some extra and then i get the stuff later ill try to get the HDD like next week maybe tuesday dont know yet got to get my check in from work

l decided either a 320 or 500GB but i dont have the chimp stuff i just got xboxhdm boot disc dont think a 1.0TB is all that cool but sounds cool though

if xboxhdm can do a 500GB then ill use it if not could you get me the software for upgrading i hope it isnt hard to do lol

I've never used HDM so I cant call it. I'll look into it for you though and get back. Hopefully somebody who is familiar with it will step in. Let me see what the other guys have to say. It shouldn't be brain surgery or anything though. Most of this stuff is hands on. You do it once and it's yours forever.

You're right about the TB. That's way more space than you'll ever need. I have a 120GB and it's been more than a plenty for me. Maybe I'll upgrade one day, but I still have like 80% of it free.

That's weird. I'm off to work at 4:00 to cook at Texas Steakhouse. Have fun JP. I know what you have to put up with. Restuarants are crazy.
