If it is softmodded it probably won't see a hard drive when connected to a PC if you also don't unlock it or feed it an EEPROM with the keys in it. Once you have homebrew working again do try to get a copy of your EEPROM (it should be able to be decoded and get the serial on the sticker, do check as some dumpers might dump the virtual EEPROM).
If push comes to shove then you might be able to recreate the unlock thing used by certain approaches to modding the xbox -- it was noted the xbox hard drive is unlocked for a short period during boot so people used to unlock it in the xbox, stick it on a PC and then manipulate files as they needed. Don't go there first though.

At this point if an optical drive from that generation of consoles doesn't have a problem it is more of a surprise. Some versions of the xbox drive only worked with certain types of burned media so make sure it is it not that. Dust covered laser and dirty internals are the usual bets here, however bad laser is also an option.

If you want then there are options for USB loading of things. You will need a small USB drive (2 gigs or less, preferably 512 or 1 gig) and then it is also fussy. You make a USB adapter by cutting into the controller cable and wiring up a USB extension to it (same colour wires to same colour wires, assuming they are the standard. https://pinouts.ru/Slots/USB_pinout.shtml . Leave the yellow wire connected, it is mainly for things like lightguns if memory serves). Such things will also allow you to use an xbox controller on PC if you wanted and left the USB end attached.
I don't know what unleashx has as far as USB loading of programs but it should do something.

As for FTP not working then make sure the password was not changed for some reason, or that FTP was not disabled. If you go to the system option, then settings it should tell you what things are and allow you to enable it or reset the password. What FTP program are you using by the way?
