    So, you just got your Datel Transfer Kit/Xport in the mail today (memory cards own, sorry I don't like to unplug my hard drive every five minutes thankyouverymuch), plugged in your memory card, and get the error "Could not find a fatx drive to open!" in Xplorer 360 or perhaps Xport 360? Well, if you're running XP your problem is solved (sorry, didn't upgrade to vista yet, I'll sit tight 'til Windows 7.)

    To install your Xbox 360 memory card:



    • First, go to the start menu, right click My Computer and select properties, click the hardware tab, and then select Device Manager. Scroll down to 'Other devices' and click on the + symbol to expand it.

    • Right click on 'Memory Unit' and select 'Update Driver.' If asked whether you want to connect to Windows Update select 'No, not this time' and then select 'Next'. It will then ask you to 'Install from a list or specific location (Advanced).' Choose this.

    • After that is done, select 'Don't search, I will choose the driver to install.' This should launch the hardware update wizard. Scroll down to 'Universal Serial Bus Controllers' which appears near the bottom of the list.

    • On the next screen make sure that 'USB Mass Storage Device' is highlighted and select 'Next'. If an 'Update Driver Warning' appears select 'Yes.'

    • Windows will now install the driver. Once this is complete the new hardware wizard will appear again. Click cancel when this occurs. If you now scroll back up to 'Other devices' you will notice that 'Memory Unit' has been removed and 'MSFT Memory Unit USB Device' has appeared in it's place.

    • Now, right click on 'MSFT Memory Unit USB Device.' If asked whether you want to use Windows Update again select 'No, not this time,' and then on the next screen select 'Install from a list or specific location (Advanced).

    • After clicking 'Next' select 'Don't search. I will choose the driver to install.' You should now be back at the 'Hardware Update Wizard'. Near the top of the list should be the hardware type 'Disk drives', select this option and click 'Next.'

    • Check that 'Standard Disk Drives' is highlighted under manufacturer and 'Disc Drive' under model and then click 'Next.' If you get the 'Update Driver Warning' select 'Yes.'

    • You can then click finish and close 'Device Manager.' Your memory card reader is now installed.

    ***I DID NOT originally make this tutorial, I just adapted it for use on the forums with minimal editing. Found at 360gamesaves.com.***

    Hope this fixed your problem.
