Repair HDs with damaged sectors?

Post by Telek » Thu May 26, 2005 10:20 pm

I have a pair of xboxen here with bad sectors on their HDDs. Is there any way to mask this with fatx as bad so that they don't get used, or a fsck program for fatx?

wow where do you get 120GB HDDs for $40?

I know it's easier to replace, but I'm just curious about repair. The owner of the box just wants to get it back working again like normal, doesn't want mod or anything else.

bad sectors can typically be fixed by low leveling the drive (zeroing the drive)

do this:
backup your data
pull the hard drive
put it in a pc
downoad Ultimate Boot CD from http://www.ultimatebootcd.com/
use a disk whiping software to zero the drive
you can then use a program to test the drive found on the same disk, if it passes slap it back in the xbox, format and put your data back



atleast that is what i would do heh
