hows it goin. i don't know if this is the right place to post this, but the forums at xbox-scene.com are down.
my modded xbox got hit by a power-surge last night and it hasn't turned on since. it was wierd because i had a tv, a cable modem, a reciever, a router, a cable box and my xbox all hooked up to the same splitter, and the lightening killed my tv and xbox and nothing else.
anyways, i'm trying to salvage the 200gb hard drive i had installed in the xbox, and set it up as a slave on my PC. i took it out of my xbox, and i hooked it into my computer like a normal hdd as a slave. in my BIOS, it detects the hard drive without any problems. however, in XP it doesn't show up.
anyways, i was just wondering if anyone knows what exactly i need to do to prepare this 200gb hdd for xp to read it. is it possible to set this hdd up on my pc without formating it? any help would be great.
also, if anyone has much experience with power surges i could use some advice. what are the chances my tv or xbox will be repairable? it was really wierd because none of the lights in my place went out, and everything else (including stuff hooked into the same outlet as the tv/xbox) kept running without any problems.
