How to use the SINTECH XBOX SERIES X S NVME ADAPTER

I recently purchased one of the SINTECH Xbox Series X/S NVME adapters in an attempt to use a less expensive alternative for NVME storage on my XBOX.

This is the item:

XBOX NVME ADAPTER

It took about 10 days for the adapter to transit to the USA.

You will also need a specific NVME 2030 hard drive.

WD CH SN530 (1tb unformatted, ~867gb formatted).  I bought mine on eBay for $110 w/free shipping.

Here is the correct procedure to get the NVME to work.

  1. insert the WD CH SN530 into your NVME PC.
  2. using a “real” partition management software (or via windows command line), delete ALL partitions from the drive.  My factory drive had a small partition then a large partition.  The small partition did not show up under Windows Disk management, thus why I had to use partition software to delete the partitions.
  3. Convert the disk to MBR.
    1. in windows disk management, right click the drive name (in the far left column), and choose convert disk to MBR.
  4. Format the disk NFTS
  5. remove the NVME from your PC
  6. insert into the SINTECH adapter.
  7. plug the adapter board into your XBOX
  8. the drive will recognize.  Format it as a game storage device (NOT MEDIA).
  9. Have fun!
