    How to put xbox360 iso onto your external hard drive for a Jtagged console

    Ok, so i got my first jtag to run. I'm trying to find out how to put an xbox360 backup onto my external hard drive to play games with the jtag. anyways i read a BUNCH of tutorials which don't really go into detail and.... in other words didn't show me anything at all... so i formatted my HDD to fat32. now i dont know what else to do after that? can someone point me to a GOOD tutorial.. not a bad one.. a GOOD one. and if i find a way to put an iso onto an external hard drive. will the update on the game do anything to me? some games have updates on them. i dont know if there's a way to take it off. thanks

    Fat32 only supports max 4gb per file . to play your iso you have to convert them to GOD, you can google "iso2GOD" and download it. Convert then load them in.

    If you are using an external HDD, then this is how you will need to organise your games. With external HDDs you cannot use NTFS, you need to use HPFS+ or FAT32. HPFS+ is for Macs, and its hard to work with if you have a PC so most people just use FAT32.
    To format a large HDD, you will need a application like this here as windows will not do it.
    After formatted the HDD structure for the games Forza, and Gears of War would be as follows:
    HDD:\Games\Forza\
    and
    HDD:\Games\GOW\

    You can name the last folder whatever you want, put it would be a good idea to name is the same as the game, so that you know where everything is.



    You can make this game format in 2 ways. with the Disc (original or backup) you can rip it directly from Xex Menu. Just plug in your HDD, navigate to the folder you have made, and choose the option "Copy Disc". If you have a multi disc game you can rip the second disc in the same folder, and just overwrite the files.
    If you have an ISO on your PC and you want to convert that, then
    1. download Xbox Backup Creator.
    2. Open up and application and click the "image tools" tab.
    3. Click "Image Broswer"
    4. Click File in the top left hand corner and Open Image file.
    5. Navigate to your ISO and open it
    6. You will see the contents of the ISO in the window. Right click the ISO in the LEFT pane and click "extract"
    7. Then choose the location to dump all the files to. A good idea wouldbe directly onto your external HDD!

    To choose the game you can either use XEX menu, another app like Freestyle Dash, or you can launch them from the normal 360 menu if you convert quickboot icons.

    this is not true. it needs to be formatted to "fat32"

    And?
    I have a jtag sat here and i can guarantee you now that the external HDD is formatted to FAT32

    thats 1 reason you need to extract the iso, so it's not 1 big file, but loads of little 1's

    thanks a bunch. great explanation and small tutorial. so i got the games to work on the hard drive now. the only thing i notice now is that the games kinda run choppy. I'm assuming it does that due to the nature of the external hard drive running through USB and not running as fast as SATA? but if they're not supposed to run choppy like that please tell me what I'm doing wrong. thanks :]
