  1. So turns out its not the drive, as when i swapped the disc drive from my other XBOX i could replicate the issue with both drives. Opening the disc tray obviously interrupts some process and allows the XBOX to boot normally. Any more ideas?
  2. It is a Phillips drive! I'll swap the drive from my other Xbox tomorrow and see if that sorts it. Is the drive repairable if it is that that's causing the issue?
  3. Hi Everyone, I picked up another XBOX on eBay that was really clean never been opened. It has a strange issue though, if you power on it will take about 1-2 minutes to boot to the dashboard. If you power on and open the disc tray during the start-up animation it will boot straight away. I opened the XBOX and the clock capacitor had leaked so that got removed and 3 more capacitors had popped so they got replaced today. The motherboard has been completely cleaned. The disc drive works fine once powered up and games run no problem. Anyone had this issue? Is the disc drive on its way out? Thanks in advance
  4. I made it yesterday. Thought I would share with the community.
  5. Hi All, Just discovered softmodding while on a mission to preserve my back catalogue of original xbox games. I started using unleashX as I only really want the game functionality but wanted a clean xbox themed skin whilst showing some key system details. Figured since this forum had helped me get this far i would share the skin in case anyone wants to use it. Preview is a bit squashed since i made the theme for widescreen. all images are PNG and un-flattened so you can edit anything you want to change. Next step is to install a new HDD once all the pieces arrive. D24B.rar
