    I just recently purchased a Datel Xport for my Xbox 360 with the express intent of running chkdsk on my HDD. My 360 recently gave me the 3 red lights and I've already sent it off to MS to have it fixed. However, since then I've brought my HDD and the game F.E.A.R. over to a friend's house, and the game along with my friend's console were both behaving strangely.

    For that reason, I think it might be wise to run chkdsk on my HDD and check for corrupt files/bad sectors. Thus, I bought a Datel Xport, thinking that my computer would see the HDD as it does any external drive. For some reason, though, when I hook up the HDD through the Xport, my computer definitely responds and shows that a USB Mass Storage Device is hooked up, but I can only access it through the provided Datel software. The drive doesn't appear when I go to My Computer (i.e. it doesn't show up, therefore doesn't have a letter like E:, F: etc.). If the drive doesn't show up as such, I can't run chkdsk on it, can I?

    Windows is doing something sort of funny. In the product manual, it says that once I attach my HDD to the Xport, I should be prompted to install a driver. However, I never received any such prompt, because Windows has assumed that this is any old external hard drive and has used the generic "USBSTOR.SYS" driver. When I try to update the driver using the disc included with the Xport (as it instructs me to do), Windows simply says "the specified location does not contain information about your hardware." So, I'm basically stuck on how to forcibly install this driver that Windows seems to want to ignore. Thanks in advance for any help you can offer.
