    Backup everything to PC first.

    Your MS dash in Backup on Partition4

    Did you read "Restore xbox hdd to manufacturing codition" on my tut? Just do like that.

    Right its getting on my nerves now.... i did this..
    After you have xplorer360 to access xbox hdd, then you can tell partition 3 is C drive and partition 4 is E drive.

    So you want to make the xbox back to manufacturing condition, then follow this:

    Partition3:/Audio, Fonts, xboxdashdata, xodash, xboxdash.xbe, Xbox.xtf, Xboxbook.xtf

    Partiton4:/UDATA, TDATA

    Partition 0-2 is empty

    NOTE: UDATA and TDATA folders are EMPTY. Partition 3 has the complete clean working MS dash. I deleted the files in UDATA and TDATA because you said they are empty i made sure i had the same files as it said it had in the list above check it and its still not working have i done anything wqrong ?????????
    I STILL HAVE ALL THE FILES ON MY PC so if you can be kind and tell me what i need and dont it would save me money thanks

    is this what you have on xbox hdd right now?

    Partition3:/Audio, Fonts, xboxdashdata, xodash, xboxdash.xbe, Xbox.xtf, Xboxbook.xtf

    Partiton4:/UDATA, TDATA (2 folders are empty)

    Partition 0-2 is empty


    If YES and you still have error 21, then do hotswap again.
    Delete everything in Partition 3.
    Copy all files and folders in Backup/MS/ from PC to partition 3. So you will have like this

    Partition3:/Audio, Fonts, xboxdashdata, xodash, xboxdash.xbe, Xbox.xtf, Xboxbook.xtf

    Put xbox hdd back to Xbox. Reboot. It should work.

    If you follow exactly what I said, then your xbox will work.

    I had a lot of ppl successed to fix their xbox with my hotswap tutor.
