So after finally resolving one problem of mine...I've stumbled across another.

I had an external drive which I had always help my game rips. I had mistakenly purchased an AC powered HDD, and was having problems with the box booting with the drive plugged in. Basically, it would stall on every other boot. I tried multiple attempts to fix the issue, including a new flash, but still had the problem. I finally just chalked it up to the external drive being powered and went out and purchased a USB powered HDD.

I transfered all my games from the AC powered HDD to the new USB powered HDD. With the older AC HDD, all my games would show up fine in FSD. I copied the entire contents of the AC HDD to the USB HDD making no changes in names and folders. After finally completing the transfer of content, I plugged in the new HDD, checked the path manager in FSD to make sure nothing changed, and went to the "Xbox 360 Games" section in FSD...

None of my games now show Sad

I deleted the old paths, and created a new one, just to make sure nothing went foul. I have also rebooted, and hard restarted the box and still no luck. All games still show up perfectly in XeXMenu and launch fine, just not showing up in FSD.

I've changed the scan depth to 10, and still nothing. I have no clue what's wrong and why they will no longer show up. I tried to rip a game that wasn't stored on my old HDD, and it WILL show up...but the other 200+ games that were on their prior...won't.

Any help would be appreciated. I honestly don't know what to do next. The drive is formatted correctly, because it displays fine, and can still launch games from XeXMenu. Me and external drives just apparently don't like each other Evil or Very Mad

Nope that doesn't sound stupid at all...thanks for the input!

Unfortunately, I had already checked all the tabs (Games, XBLA, Homebrew, Emulators) and they weren't there.

Actually solved the problem. I just deleted FSD and downloaded a new copy and BOOM...there were my games. Don't know what happened, but its working now, so I won't beat myself up asking why.

Thanks for your input + rep for you. Smile
