Issues with XboxHDM USB


#1. Post Posted: 02-10-2019, 01:44 AM
I have tried a few times to hook up my 1tb hard drive to run it on XboxHDM USB and for some reason every time it just will not recognize the hard drive at all. I am curious if anyone else has ran into this issue I really want to get this hdd installed and load all the games onto it. Any help is appreciated thanks.

Found this online, hope it helps

Most things should work for prepping the HDD, but locking requires a compatible adaptor, there are quite a few. But hubs and enclosures probably won’t work. ( the latest build of smartmontools supports more chipsets, but it’s not been modified to do the RC4 eeprom key decryption )

I only use 2.5” drives in my Xbox and I have two adaptors, one generic Chinese one and the Xbox 360 transfer kit. ( the original grey one ) both work for cloning and locking of all my HDDs.

I've done questionable things.

Some of the USB-to-SATA adapters require that an additional option is included to work.  For my adapter, I had to add "-d sat" to all the lines in the batch files that run smartctl.exe (e.g., smartctl.exe -d sat ...remainder of command line...).

Find the USB vendorID:productID value (I use usbview.exe,
link
to RAR archive) for your adapter. Then, check the
smartmontools compatibility list
for your vendorID:productID for additional options that may be required for it to work properly.

The extracted
usbview.exe is VirusTotal
confirmed to be virus free.
