FATXplorer

FATXplorer works on Windows XP, Windows Vista, Windows 7, Windows 8, and Windows 8.1.

The latest version of FATXplorer is currently 2.5.2.14697, released on February 16, 2013.

FATXplorer is 100% portable. You can put it anywhere you want, even on a flash drive!

The seven day trial period starts when you first open FATXplorer. There is no way to stop the timer, so make sure you open it when you are ready!

Trial extension codes are offered if seven days is not enough time to fully evaluate all of the features. If you need an extension, contact FATXplorer support.

Xbox 360 Memory Unit Driver

Installation of this driver is essential for FATXplorer’s device detection engine to detect memory-units like the one pictured below.

NOTE: This driver is ONLY for memory-units, you can see a picture of one above. You don’t need to install this driver if you aren’t using that device.

    Hello Eaton. My drive is a genuine Seagate HDD, connected via SATA, Device Manager recognizes the drive and infact every other explorer have no problems opening the drive, except FATXplorer (shows not detected) i tried restarting the pc, the program, manually scanning – nothing.

    Is there a way to continue to use beta 2.5 for the paying customer? it’s really a great program

  • http://www.eaton-works.com Eaton

    I am aware that it expired, a beta 3 is planned but I have been so busy lately I haven’t had much time to get it out. I’ll try to get it out soon.

  • Matthew Barber

    Bought it a week ago, STILL loving it! Especially being able to sort and filter on all columns, this is a VERY powerful content management system. Can’t wait to see what you have planned for the future, as it’s already awesome.

    Thanks for your feedback! v2.5.3 is going to improve the Content View quite a bit. Keep an eye out for it. (-;

    HI Eaton,

    Is 2.5.3 coming soon? I really need its functionality. I am also having trouble running version 2.5.2 I know my windows are fully updated, and I have .net versions 3.5.1 and 4.5 installed. fatxplorer still doesnt open though. Any ideas?

  • http://www.eaton-works.com/ Eaton

    Hi Joey, is there a specific functionality that you need?

    FATXplorer does not require .NET 4.5. It is built on 4.0 to retain XP compatibility. Try installing this package: http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=17718

  • joey

    I mostly just need to be able to reformat the hard drive. My hard drive got corrupted, and the regular xbox reformat isn’t fixing the problem.

  • http://www.eaton-works.com/ Eaton

    Hm, if the console won’t format it successfully then FATXplorer might not either, but you are welcome to try.

    Send in a support request and I can send you a beta version to do this.

  • Tanner Scott

    Hey guys, I’m new to this, so i was wondering, when i open FATXplorer, it says start free trial, so i click on that and it just shuts off silently, with no indication that i did anything wrong. I have win 7 so it should work, correct?

  • http://www.eaton-works.com/ Eaton

    Hello, I believe you fixed this problem since we were talking over email.

  • Mephisto

    When is 2.5.3 going to be available?

  • http://www.eaton-works.com/ Eaton

    Still working on it, but I will be releasing a hotfix for Windows 8.1 compatibility if it doesn’t happen to be done by then.

  • Rodrigo p.

    I have a problem that when I try to start the program, it simply does not open, already installed all the necessary components, and still does not open when you click,

  • Miss Fizz

    So, i have it fully downloaded, but it only opens a bunch of files. I am using winrar to open it and nothing is working.

  • http://www.eaton-works.com/ Eaton

    Hi Miss Fizz, extract the entire package to a folder on your computer using WinRar, and double click on “FATXplorer.exe”.

  • Miss Fizz

    okay, thank you (:

  • Miss Fizz

    how do i view files from something on my xbox 360 hard drive?

  • http://www.eaton-works.com/ Eaton

    Go to the “Devices” tab, find your device in the list, and then you will have a few options to interact with it.

  • Miss Fizz

    okay, i need a file removed from my hard drive, and i cant do it via my console, the only options that the “devices” tab gives me, is “load usb data directory”, “load storage device backup”, “load/refresh devices”

  • http://www.eaton-works.com/ Eaton

    Hello, what file is it?
    And what transfer device are you using to connect your hard drive to your computer?

  • Miss Fizz

    It is a plugin via .xex for xbox neighborhood.
    and my device is a hard drive transfer cable

  • http://www.eaton-works.com/ Eaton

    Ok, let’s do some diagnostics.

    Create a file named “DDDiagnosticsFlag” (no extension) in the folder where the other FATXplorer files are. Then, load your devices again. You should see a file created named “DDDiagnostics.txt”. This will contain detailed diagnostic output, see what it says.

  • Miss Fizz

    should i try integrating the device first with FatXplorer?
    i cant seem to make the file

  • http://www.eaton-works.com/ Eaton

    Hello, so the device is showing up now?
    Yes, integrate into Windows and you will be be able to browse and delete that file easily.

  • Miss Fizz

    Yes, how long should the integration take?

  • http://www.eaton-works.com/ Eaton

    Should be pretty quick.

  • Miss Fizz

    okay, it has been taking over 10 minutes, im going to close it and try again.

  • http://www.eaton-works.com/ Eaton

    It definitely does not take that long.
    When you try again, go to My Computer and check and see if the disk shows up.
    I have seen this behavior happen with anti-virus software, do you have anything like that running?

  • Miss Fizz

    the disk doesn’t. If you mean my hard drive.
    and i have McAfee, should i uninstall it?

  • http://www.eaton-works.com/ Eaton

    If the integration takes longer than a minute, go to My Computer and check to see if a new drive has popped up. That will be your Xbox HDD mounted in Windows.

    Disable McAfee, it is probably causing this delay.

  • Miss Fizz

    Okay, i disabled and i reintegrated, and the disk showed up. Now can i just open it and look through all the files?

  • http://www.eaton-works.com/ Eaton

    Thanks for the report.

    Yup, you now have access to your drive and may delete your file and anything else you might need to do.

  • Miss Fizz

    Alright, thank you so much. You have been so much help, and I’m glad there is someone to actually help here! This site is amazing.

  • http://www.eaton-works.com/ Eaton

    Happy to help! Feel free to let me know if you have any other questions.

  • Miss Fizz

    I will, thank you.
    I just deleted the file :D

  • Kao

    Hey, Am I able to format my Official Xbox360 120GB HDD with this program instead of formatting it on my JTAG , and if I do will it work since it is being formatted into FATX because people formatting it into the wrong Format eg Fat32 is corrupting their HDD and it wont work for them no more on their xbox. Please reply?!?

  • http://www.eaton-works.com/ Eaton

    Hi Kao, yes, the HDD formatter is mainly designed so you can customize the cluster size. It specifically only works on HDDs that are already official.

  • john

  • http://www.eaton-works.com/ Eaton

    Hi John, please redownload FATXplorer. The USB console patcher closing abruptly is indicative of a damaged installation.
