    you ight need to format it. find the format option, the password is xbox. then select f drive and format it. then you should be able to see your free space. also how big is your hard drive

    Theres usually between 2-4 gigs of a F: partition on a stock drive.

    I'm beginning to wonder if krj15489 has ever seen a modded xbox.

    The drive is laid out in the following partitions and sizes.

    C: 600Mb

    E: around 4 gigs

    F: Whatever is left after taking out...

    X: 759Mb
    Y: 759Mb
    Z: 759Mb

    Add it up.. Even on the smallest stock xbox drives it leaves a little space for an F: partition.

    I don't trust the unleash tools to format partitions. I use the xwizard disk.. the format menu is simple, and it also has a way to create a F: partition if for some reason one hasn't been made by the installer. You need to look in your dash settings and see if there is a switch for "use F:"

    Here you are Steve.. follow it to the letter (better still, print it out so you have a reference while doing it) and everything will go just fine.

    Be very careful with the lock/unlock tools. It's better to try to leave your original drive in a locked state and just put it to one side in the anti-static packaging as a full backup in case of emergency.

    Your tdata and udata folders on E: contain all your game saves and custom soundtracks. Back them up to your pc..

    Enjoy!!..
