    Do you really need your undo.bin? presuming you used the 500gb security sector i presume you will just leave the drive in your Xbox 360?

    I can't find the WD5000LPVT in my country.

    Does a WD5000LPVX will work? Thanks.

    WOW! I was about to order a 320GB WD Black HDD sometime this week. When my friend messaged me telling me about the 500GB HDDSS, So I ordered a 500GB WD Black HDD from Newegg yesterday. I'm really excited about this and to have the extra storage. Can't wait until it ships here.

    HI, I Just have done this and nothing is happening on the drive. Flashed; everything I would like to know what to do when i get error 16 but the words at the end are different "Reading HDD sector failed 16 failed! DRQ Error: 0x0802" This is a pain because i just done this with another one about 4 months ago. And now i have a friend that needed more room and i got him the drive as a birthday present. The only thing different i did was create a parttion first instead of flashing it right away. I am PISSED PLEASE HELP!!! and i can't find an undo.bin file, i deleted it by accident. Trying to find an recovery drive file. The drive is WD1200BEVS-08UST0.
    PLEASE HELP!!!! I WANT THIS TO WORK!!!!!
    WIll POST IMAGE LATER.


    Here is the image

    Have you set disabled AHCI or set the Sata operation mode to IDE / Legacy? you might be out of luck without your undo.bin unfortunately.

    However from your photo it doesn't look like the drive is been read at all, so i question if it even flashed it.

    response

    Yes all the setting are set as said, I have done this before but with a Scorpio blue series. I had the drive flashed with undo.bin before in the winrar undo file that u provided. Now i don't know how to flash it again, it came up with that error. IS THE WHOLE DRIVE CORRUPTED IN DOING THIS UNDO.BIN FILE.
    reply please

    Is it possible that if the whole drive is corrupted, it won't show the serial on HDDHACKR, as well as many other thing in the drive?
    Info about the drive is not showing up and i can't do anything of it, I know how to rewrite code so tell me what line to rewrite to get the hddss.bin to work.

    Nevermind i never seen that type of coding.

    I just checked with this other website and it said "FAQ

    Q. I get an error when I try to dump hddss.bin from a 120 gb HDD.
    A. This version can't dump from an elite drive yet. You'll have to dump sectors
    16-22 manually with a tool like winhex, save them as 'hddss.bin' and then continue
    like normal, with the hddhackr."

    If the drive was detected before you used hddhackr then you can try undoing the drive.
    Use this program to recover the undo file.
    Download Recuva 1.50.1036 - FileHippo.com

    If you are able to get the undo.bin then proceed to the instructions below.

    Thanks will try it, I though it was going to be lost.

    Nope the undo file on the usb i used doesn't show the undo.bin file i need, but thanks though, anymore ideas? Can I take the bin file from the HDD, is there a way to do that with rewriting its code? Like a program that does that.
    Was I suppose to look at the usb files to recover or HDD files?
    - Thanks for helping me on this situation.

    Enable deep scan and select the usb drive letter.

    ok will

    I have another question after this process is finished. After I thought the flashing was good, I saw it only reads 12gb of the HDD was recognized in the xbox. What could be the problem with the drive in that matter?

    I did a deep scan no undo file was found. Anything else or do i call WD to get a recovery file from them?

    You can try formatting the drive in the xbox if it shows a different capacity than the drive itself. This may or may not fix it.
    WD has no recovery files.

    Looks like the flash drive wasn't selected for booting. You will need to connect the flash drive with dos & hddhackr on it and connect the the hard drive internally. To select the usb drive for booting press the button for selecting boot device or you can change it in the bios.
    When you're done you can change the boot priority(if you changed it) after you have hacked the hard drive.
