  • Discs Can Read, But Won't Play
    So I'm having a bit of a problem and haven't been able to find a solution. The disc drive is able to read discs. It can see that the disc is a game, and I can open up the disc in file manager to view it's contents. But when I try to load the game, it absolutely refuses to load. Tried burned discs on a couple different DVD-R vendors, and even original game discs. It's a phillips disc drive. It could be the drive going bad, but then I wouldn't think it would be able to read the disc as a game and view the contents of it. I guess for some additional information, current have ind-bios...
  • Hot-Swapping an X2.6 With an Aladdin?
    Hi all, Just discovered the forum. Exited to be here! Hoping someone might have some wisdom to share with me. I recently had a bad flash on my x2.6 chip, both banks (running on a 1.6 Xbox) and so I'm hoping to hot swap it with a working Aladdin chip, which I ordered. Since everything is wired for the X2.6, would it be possible to hot swap from the Aladdin? Would I need to change anything to make it work with the Aladdin, or do anything special hardware-installation-wise? Would there be any complications with the flash? I was thinking of using Hexen 2019. Any insight appreciated. Thanks!
  • Any Tips for Cleaning Xbox?
    I picked up a particularly grotty and smelly xbox the other day - I bought it because I thought the case might be in mint condition underneath the layer of dirt and I was right. I washed the case with fairy liquid (dishwater detergent) and a microfibre cloth but although the plastic casing looks clean it isn't - I ran a baby wipe over a tiny section of the case and it was brown. Same result when I used a baby wipe on the inside of the case - brown residue inside the case as well. Is there any special paste I should make? Could I make a baking power and vinegar paste? The reason I'm...

  • XBox Smells Really Bad - How Do I Get Rid of the Smell?

  • Something Has Leaked - Any Ideas If This Motherboard Is Fixable?
    I opened an xbox that I picked up at the weekend last night. There was a problem with the disk drive as it kept opening an closing and wouldn't read a disk when it was held closed while the disk was spinning. I suspected a faulty drive but when I opened it I found that it was absolutely filthy inside and that something had leaked - I have attached pics - I think it's a 1.6 so I don't know what is leaking or if it is repairable - any help greatly appreciated. Thanks

  • How Much Do You Guys Think This XBox Is Worth?
    I'm debating selling this Xbox and I really don't want to be low-balled because I don't know the true value of it, so I was hoping you guys could help me. I know it's an Xecutor 3 Christmas Edition chip with a black pro switch, which I've heard is pretty rare; the 4th bank switch is missing the cover cap but I'm trying to find a replacement for it.
  • Halo 2 From Hdd Missing Menu Text, Crash
    I've copied the files from the Halo 2 disc to my chipped xbox via ftp. When starting the game there's no menu text (as if the font is missing). Selecting menu options at random starts the intro movie, which runs for a bit then crashes. The files are verified extracted and copied ok. Lots of other games transferred exactly the same way are working fine. It is a v1.6 with an xecuter 2 chip. I tried to run the ACL from dvd2xbox on the installed folder, but that seemed to hang and hadn't completed after 10 hours. There isn't a specific acl for Halo 2 installed as far as I...
  • Another One Bites the Dust
    I bought 10 used xboxes and I would love to resurrect them. Maybe you could help out as the most sites are down that contain proper information about the OGXBOX.

FTP'd game using qwix, also tried extracting the iso to PC then FTP'ing and it still wont work.Last thing I tried was I FTP'd a copy from my v1.1 softmodded Xbox which the game works fine on and it still wont work on the v1.0 box. When I try to load the game the screen goes blank for a few seconds then reloads the UnleashX dash. I've tried clearing the cache, tried changing the bios to evox m8+, etc nothing seems to work. I've tried a few other games and they work fine. any...

  • Tsop Flash or Mod Chip Install?
    I have the parts to do either a TSOP flash or a DUO X2 GS modship install. Not sure which one is the most beneficial. Also have a 2TB HDD I'll be putting in it for storing my disc images.
