  • XOsvp Purchase Issues
    So I paid to preorder an XOSVP like 7 months ago and never heard a word from Darren. I emailed him about a month later with no response. I just emailed him again like 4 days ago with no response. Has anyone dealt with this guy or does anyone have any advice on how to handle the situation?

  • Can Bad Caps Lead To Gpu/Cpu Damage?
    the 3 main caps behind the heatsinks, can they cause damage? i recently saw 3 of those caps have around 8,000uf(they're suppose to be 3300uf) and i'm wondering if that can damage a processor? it's making me wonder if i should recap some xbox's just to prevent damage.
  • Noisy Harddrive Gta San Andreas XBox
    Hi, I just downloaded GTA San Andreas to Xbox and ftped it over to the xbox. When playing it the hd makes noise all the time? No problems in the game but it is usual with so much sound? I tried Call of Duty on the Xbox and it does not make any noise when playing.
  • Disable Dvd Drive On Hard Modded XBox?
    Quick question I am finding difficult to search online. Like most, I mainly play games directly from the hard drive, but do occasionally like to play my games on disc. I am wondering if there is an application out there that gives you the option of disabling the dvd drive on startup? I want to keep my dvd drive alive for as long as possible, and I cringe everytime I boot the Xbox and the laser searches for a disc that isn't there. It seems I am just degrading the lifetime of the drive that way. If I can disable the drive when I am not using it, I bet I would be able to squeeze more...
  • Softmod Question
    Hi everyone, first sorry for my English but I'll try to do my best. I got a problem with softmoding my Xbox. I followed step by step all the instructions from tutorials to softmod my box and I'm in front of a problem I feel the only one who it happens. I'm in possession of a usb key 2Go and a usb/controller cable. I format it on my pc in fat, get in my box, got the error message then recognised by the box as memory card 2a, back in the pc using xplorer 360 to get the umod files in, and when back to the box, still recognising it as an empty memory card... Got another usb...
  • Psx-Pi-Smbshare Ftp Issues
    I'm trying to forward and FTP session to my xbox using a raspberrry pi running psx-pi-smbshare. I've followed all the instructions given on the github readme. Has anyone had any success with this?
  • Weird Problem With Capacitors
    i'm not well versed on how to interpret the readings on capacitors but my understanding is that the uf should go down as the cap is wearing out. i pulled a couple of 3300uf caps off of a board and they are both reading over 8000uf in my esr meter. i tried some new caps to be certain that the meter is reading correctly and it is. why would the uf go up on an old cap?
  • Ftp'ing Games To XBox Takes So Long.

  • Date Settings Reset Problem
    Hi, I soft-modded my Xbox (1.6) some years ago (I think 5) with SID 12. The soft-mod main dashboard is UnleashX. I moved it (the 3 files) from E:\ to E:\Apps and installed XBMC4XBOX in E:\ making it as my main dash (with a shorcut.xbe). On the HW side I replaced the IDE cable with a 80 wires one and installed a SATA III 2,5" Barracuda HDD (connected with the Sabrent ide to sata board. HDD blocked with a 2,5" to 3,5" mount) I installed a lot of Xbox games and emulators, never had a single problem but this one: Since the beginning it keeps resetting the time...
  • What Version XBox?
    I just received an Xbox I bought from eBay really cheap which I was planning to use as spares. ive just cracked it open, and wow. So clean. Hardly any dust, no pitting of steel, Capacitor leaks (I’ll still remove clock anyways). i May even switch my main drive etc over to this one and softmod it Is this a 1.2? Date on sticker says 2003-08-15. Shame it’s a Thompson drive, but it still works.
  • This Was the Problem
    I bought a cheap sata to ide adaptor to do a 2tb install, after completion I was getting crazy long wait times for the xbox to even load it was such a disappointment . Buy cheap buy twice! I have a startech one now and it works fine completely night and day. This forum has helped me loads already thank you.
  • I Think I Choose the Wrong Hdd
    i got a 3tb seagate barracuda 5400rpm drive for my xbox. after loading it with games it became pretty sluggish to load things. games ran great when they finally loaded, though. i wanted something quiet and i know the 7200rpm wd drives can be noisey. has anyone else tried both a 5400rpm and 7200rpm to see what the difference is with speed and noise?
  • Is There a Way To Defrag the Hdd?
    the seek time is a little longer than i'd like it to be. is there a way to defrag the hdd to speed up the seek time?
  • Problem When Updating UnleashX
    Hello everyone here, I recently got an original XBox which seems to be soft modded with an UnleashX 0.38 release. I tried updating it to V0.39 using FTP creating an Old folder where I copied all the already present file in the /E/dashboard folder. Afer uploading the files I tried rebooting the XBox and I'm getting the MS animation and then a black screen and Unleash never loads. My question is : is it possible to somehow acess the drive and copy back the old files in place in order to unlock the situation ? How would you do that ? Thanks in advance

  • Slayer 2.7 Install Suggestions ?
    So I got Slayer 2.7 properly running on a DVD-R, but I don't know where to start from . I know some options can ruin the HDD or the XBox so I would need to know what is the correct installation procedure. I have a 120Gb HDD (a compatible Maxtor, according to this list Xbox Hard Drive Compatibility Chart ) that is connected instead of the previous one (that works fine with Evox already running), but I literally don't know what to do once the functions list of the installer appears on screen. For example, I don't know about Kernel compatibility, if the HDD is to be considered as RETAIL...
  • Ftp Speed Advice
    Hello, I'm looking for some advice around improving my FTP speeds. I'm using WinSCP and both my Xbox and PC are connected to my router via Ethernet cables. I'm using XBMC4Gamers as my main dash but am loading into UnleashedX for FTP since I've read it should be faster. From what I've seen speeds approaching 10MB/s (even slightly above) should be common... Still, when transferring to the console I'm currently lucky to get speeds of over 1MB/s - they're usually much lower and often only around 250KB/s. For some reason transferring from the Xbox to my PC gives much faster speeds at around...
  • Should I Replace All the Big Caps On My Modded 1.4?
