Och Aye Laddy ! I have some Scottish and Welsh friends back where I used to live.... great m8's and loooovvvvveeee a beer or 30

Hey on another note....

I put the Seagate 160 gig HD into my PC as a Slave on my Primary IDE and it is not readable... that I understand because it is XBox formatted.... but I ran some low level Seagate software which u hav to boot from a CD and I thought it would at least tell me the drive was full or partially used.... because it has heaps of mods, games etc. on it in 6 different partitions.... but the Seagate software which is for Partitioning etc. says the drive is totally unprepared and empty...

Is that what it should say ?
Is there some software I can use to look at whats on the HD while it is hooked into my PC ?

Thx
blanes

There is some software m8, but it's a pain in the *** to use and VERY buggy. All PC software will see the drive as blank. As you gathered, it's because it's formatted with the XFS (Xbox File System).

To be honest, it's not worth bothering trying to get your PC to read it. Just hang on until you can boot it. Be a better suprise that way anyways!

Oh, and as for the beer thing, we're not that bad. It's not 'always' 30 at a time... could be 40 if we're recovering from a hang over!

The switch should be alright m8. Should it stop working though, you know it's worked a little loose. I've not personally used a 2.2 so I can't advise on if there should be a definate lock. Don't worry about it, if it works worry about it when it doesn't!
