Okay Format the hard drive in windows quick format to NTFS.

Then run the program I sent you and quick format the hard drive as FAT32.

Then the hard drive will show up as the full amount. Just try it.

is it really only fat 32 that gets recognised by the jtag? i've been converting my backups with wx360 on a ntfs 1.5 tb external hdd ready for a jtag coming fri with 750gb internal drive. what i wanna do is copy from external to internal. but maybe later get another hdd but usb powered to sit on the top of jtag.what's the max usb powered hdd.anyone know.any recommendations?

ive heard you can just plug in the hdd to the xbox and let the xbox format it?

if this is the case won't i be able to ftp to by jtag to work round the prob?

Yes FAT32 is recognised by a jtag. NTFS is not.

You can FTP them across to your internal using XEXmenu or freestyle dash. :)

Your Original post says you wanted to format your Hard drive to FAT32 to put games on it for your jtag.

Have you did what I said with the program on your PC? If so your hard drive should now be FAT32 and at full capacity.

Use your xbox Hard drive for XEXmenu and freestyle dash etc.
