    I have a 120GB 360 phat HDD, the security sectors for it got wiped some how and I'm trying to restore it to work with the 360 slim I now have.

    The 120GB SS that's floating around on the net is for a fujitsu hard drive, so wouldn't suit my purpose.

    I've tried taking the 250gb SS which is made for a Hitachi, and hybridize it with the 120gb fujitsu image, but this obviously didn't help.

    Does ANYONE happen to have a copy of the Hitachi 120GB 360 phat HDD's security sectors? I'd even take a full on disk image and try burning the whole thing to the drive if anyone had the disk image for the whole thing

    It... shouldn't matter what make the hard drive is as long as it's a compatible hard drive.

    That's why with the X360 USB Pro V2 you can flash a WD hdd to a Hitachi with the HDSS320.bin. I did exactly that and it works flawlessly.

    Just make a backup of your drive's security sector first.

    What are you flashing it with?

    Doesn't matter much indeed.

    Just flash it to sector 16 and try booting it in the 360 ;]

    FATXplorer and hexworkshop, I could never find a copy of X360 USB Pro v2.......but the security sector was lost ages ago and the WD I had was broken beyond repair, the 360 no longer recognizes the 120gb hitachi as a valid hard drive and nothing I do makes it work correctly again, the only way I can assume to fix this, is with the original 120gb hitachi SS

    X360 USB v2 is a hardware device.


    Have you correctly flashed the SS to sector 16?
    Make sure it's there.

    I've been over that one and it doesn't help, other then the borked WD blue scorpio i had (which as I said was damaged beyond repair), it will not recognize the hard drive again for whatever reason, if it did, I wouldn't be here. I can even locate a youtube video with someone who has the exact same make and model hard drive as I have

    BThen the only option is to get a second hand 120 GB or a 250GB one.

    Their relatively cheap these days.

    Computer isn't recognizing it, or the 360 isn't?

    Haven't used FATXplorer, I use Party Buffalo Drive Explorer, but are the partitions on the drive still there? If not, make them with HDDHackr?

    Edit - And just to be clear, you DID try flashing the 120GB HDSS.bin to the drive, disregarding the fact that it's the wrong brand, right?

    I made the partitions with FATXplorer, and I can re add them whenever I want, the 360 just refuses to see the drive

    Not gonna be able to do too much with that then :/ I mean, you could always use it as a 32GB USB storage device on the 360, but nothing past that...

    The problem doesn't seem to be resolved, it still seems to rely on WD Hard drives and nothing else, and I'm really not up to tearing my laptop apart AGAIN just to have it tell me that
