Well, I managed to softmod one using Splinter Cell and a USB drive but now I come to do another I keep getting the message that my 'memory unit' isn't functioning and may be damaged (I've tried two USB flash drives now, including the one that worked on the first box!)

So I'm looking for either an Xbox memory card with the special Splinter Cell game save file on it or an ancient USB drive from this list:

Or anything else you might want to try and sell me to get the job done:)

Only looking to pay a couple of quid if it's some tiny old USB key but a bit more for memory card+file.

I have an old MP3 player and a USB stick that at some point i've used to do Xbox's

However I don't have a working Xbox at the moment so can't test them but I can guarantee that at one point they both worked for the purpose that you want them for.

As I can't test them i'd only be looking for P&P, let me know if you want to dig them out (I can test them with the PC and Action Replay)

why not crack it open and do the hotswap trick instead?
#3
I used one of those small SD cards that all digital cameras seem to be supplied with but noone actually uses because they're so small (32mb) with a SD card USB stick bought from ebay and it works with the xbox action replay software

You could just buy a game saves kit, mine was a fiver on ebay, then get a memory card.

Or you can dig about on your modded xbox. The saves required should be there still, unless you've deleted them, and then you can copy them over via memory card

Thanks very much - let me know the cost and where to send the money.

I was getting ready to do this with some old PC bits this afternoon just before I posted. I didn't want to take an in-use PC apart but I thought I had enough old bits about until I realised the motherboard I was using didn't have any onboard video and I didn't have a graphics card hanging about!

Once I'd posted here I did wonder whether I could just do that:) Hunting about online I couldn't find any mention but maybe that's because everybody else thinks it's too obvious to mention! Mind you, I don't have a memory card and they're not that cheap on eBay by the looks of it. If I can't do it any other way them I might try a trip to Gamestation and see what they've got.

That's a thought. I think I've seen the adapters pretty cheaply - another possibilty to bear in mind. Thanks!

Seems there's an xploder kit for sale... Then just get a memory card (but an official one, i wouldn't trust any others)

I wouldn't recommend the hot swap method

I don't think he'll still have it after two years to be fair

I've hot swapped 2 or 3 times, no problem, it's easy, ideally you should connect both chassis together with a piece of wire so that there if no differential in the earths, but if they're both plugged into the same socket then it shouldn't really be a problem. either way it's not hard just to stick a bit of wire to the case. and you don't really have to disassemble a pc, you just whip off the side, and connect an ide lead across. if you're like me, the side is never on my pc lol.

it was much less fathing about than doing the splinter cell exploit tho, (which is what i did with the first box i modified, because back then it was a new xbox, with warranty etc.), the tools now are simple and fast, just burn a bootable cd, and i think it's the NXE exploit now is it? Ican't remember, certainly i remember it was updated and easier that last time I did one.

Yes, ndure I think. I got as far as burning and testing the disc in a working PC. There was a time when I'd have had a PC apart at any excuse but now there'd be so much fuss from the rest of the family if normal internet service were disrupted I'd rather go for the exploit (given that I haven't quite got the spare video card.) I spent a good couple of hours last night tracking down some odd networking error that appeared from nowhere and disappeared when I just swapped a few cables and plugs about - no obvious rhyme or reason! I used to love mucking about with PC innards - now I just want the damned things to work reliably. I think I'm getting old:)
