    Hey Mac-Addicts,

    Is there a way to un-lock a xbox Hdd on the Mac..

    I got a fw ext case,if that'll help me on unlocking it..

    Tried the Disk Utility and XP format way it wont show up.. :confused: :confused:

    Will Disk Warrior or SuperDuper work on the xbox drive?

    Why do you want to unlock the XBox HDD? Do you mean lock an upgraded one?

    that sucks that it broke, not sure if it'll work for you, but I found a program online that would erase the hard drive, and just put all 0s or 1s on it and go over it a few times so theres no info on it at all thats accessible anymore

    Is the program Mac Compatible?

    I don't have the Hdd password nor the Version of software for the mod ..

    It had Eprom installed .. all this was done by a professional ..

    I googled for the information on 'un-locking' xbox drive but no firm details on my problem :confused: :confused:

    Edit:

    Im in Disk Utility do i want HFS+ if i want bootable drive?

    I just name the drive and erase the disk,that'll format it in HFS+?

    :confused: :confused:

    well just today i decided to put it back into the fw case and it showed up in Disk Utility..

    i guess this iMac G3 has a dead fw port #2 so i plugged it into #1 port and it showed up in Disk Utility


    (firewire port #2 is near the ethernet port on my iMac..) :eek:
