Never got my chance to mess with original Xbox modding, but might I ask why you need a specific flash drive?
as the flash drive has to be formatted to FatX it must be a comparable USB because otherwise the xbox can not read it and format it for you

I was hoping to get nostalgic and use an old action replay setup to softmod my box again, but everyone I know can no longer find theirs so I may have to use this new method.

Just in case anyone was curious, you can still get a used og Xbox for only $20-$40.

Perhaps Windows 8 is what the issue is. I have been able to do this on Windows 7 and XP. Are you using the version of Xplorer360 I included in the download? Newer versions of Xplorer won't work well usually.

I'd say the easiest way to softmod the xbox without the exploitable games is to hotswap the hdd while the console is booting up (unplug the ribbon cable at the right time so it unlocks it) then just load the softmod onto the hdd with a pc (using Ndure I believe).

unless that HDD is already locked to another system then your way will not work
