Yesterday I had Xport 360 working and such but now today Ive tried everything and it doesnt detect. It works on my computer but not on the programs and when I plug it in it says Device Installed even when I change USB spots too.

Tried Xport 360, Modio, Xplorer360, and FATXplorer

Also is it possible for a virus or malware to block it from getting detected?

Also my device components is Hitachi USB Device and the HDD works in the xbox 360

Forgot to add I got Windows Xp SP3

Here's what I do, I go to the device manager, go to "disc drives" and right click anywhere and click "Scan For Hardware Changes" a few times.

Always worked for me

It's a problem of your PC since all of those programs don't detect it. I'd recommend doing a clean install of your OS and trying again.

I am using Windows XP not Vista, I used all the USB Ports, The Programs were working two days ago too the only problem I think is there's a a virus in my computer that freezes my screen, slows my pc, cant open AVG + S&D, Sites always get redirected, and this.

This used to happen to me i had a virus and when it got removed it could detect my hdd. Try getting rid of the virus first and then check it out because thats what worked for me. :thumbup:

Try this website even if u dont have norton say that u think u have got a virus and cant load up norton and websites keep redirecting and maybe they can help they helped me and i didnt even have norton.

No viruses, my explorer keeps crashing, and my computer is freezing, also I got rid of malware defense since it happened when I got that malware. But it still doesnt work since it detects it and all but when I go into one of those programs it doesn't detect them.

Also do not say format my computer since I lost my operation system cd to format and there's a error to try to wipe out my pc

Quick question,do you have the current .net? it should be 3.5,if you do then I honestly don't know what to tell you,you also seem to be having computer issues,I'd take it to bestbuy or something and have them take a look at it,clean install a new operating system and see if there are any issues with the current hardware.

This happened to me. I thought I had a defective transfer cable, so I said screw it. I ended up having to restore my system (for a different reason) and it worked. This was due to a virus, too.
