    Posting because i haven't seen this fix anywhere online. tldr at the bottom


    I had 100% thought that the issue was my router blocking ftp ( partly because shaw customer service told me that there routers dont support that )


    my xbox is a 1.0 tsop with an 80gb seagate barracuda, i had it setup as only f drive because its less that 130gb, when ftping as soon as i got roughly half way through a game transfer it would crash and my laptop would say " too many users" file zilla was set to 1 connection and the xbox was set to accept up to 10. when the transfers were failing the xbox would say 4 or 5 users. i only figured this out when trying to rip a game to my hard drive at 2gb it failed. so i figured it was a dead hard-drive ( seagate isnt the most reliable brand ) i figured one last shot i would reformat it, this time i went 50 50 f drive g drive setup, and that fixed every issue on my xbox, ftp works perfectly, ripping games goes off without a hitch. hope this helps someone


    tldr, if ftp isnt working and you only have it set to f drive try reformatting to f and g

    More like just reformat it cause its messed up for some reason, It having another partition doesn't really change anything.
    Also Seagate is fine, it was like a decade ago that a few shit drives where out yet people still haven't got over it.

    Recent seagates (about a year or 2) were also high failure rate.

    We have had a bunch fail on machines we shipped to customers a couple of years ago. If you check blaze backs failure rates from a couple of years ago you will see the same.

    Guess this is a "works on my machine" situation cause i have never in the many seagate drives i have had ever had a faulty one.

    I don't think that it's necessarily because of the drive letter change that it now works. Probably a configuration error to begin with. But hey, I'm glad you got it working. Try C-Xbox Tool as well.

    Yeah, don't get me wrong - we have more without issues than with. Just higher than usual failure rate on models a few years ago. Worth checking the blaze back report yearly
