So after I finally replaced the HDD with 1TB one, I've been trying to rip the games I have to ISO files using DVD2Xbox. The issue is that after around 10% to 15% the process hangs and the drive starts making weird noises, at which point I just shut it down cause I was afraid maybe it was causing damage. Anyway this has happened with 3 different discs already and I did not see any visible scratches. Is my DVD drive dying? (The Xbox is revision 1.2, softmodded with Rocky5 and the drive is a Samsung). I thought about using a DVD cleaner disc, which some people said works great while others said it does more harm than good. Anyone has any experience with those? Also, I'm really not good with messing around with hardware. It was already difficult enough to replace the HDD (I actually managed to tear an IDE cable) so I'm not very enthusiastic about taking the DVD drive apart to manually clean the laser. I thought about maybe just replacing the drive altogether. I found this one on eBay: Samsung SD-616 IDE 16x DVD CD-ROM Drive (48xCD-ROM, 2001) | eBay The image says revision F, so I assume I can flash it with Xbox firmware and it'll work? Although I'm a bit concerned that some sellers have a large stock and not all of them might be the same revision. Anyone has any experience? Thanks and sorry for the noob questions.
This is happening on a stock console btw, I've read that the Microsoft logo appearing indicates an XBE has been found to launch so it's more likely to be something besides the HDD, there's no error code or change in LED color. I could put a chip in it and see what happens but maybe someone else who's seen this before could share their experience and save me some time.
Hi. I have the Xecuter3 mod with firmware version 3294 and a rev1.0 Xbox. I'm trying to install a big HDD (4TB) and have maged to get it recognised by using the Startech IDE to SATA converter. I've got it partitioned and setup successfully (using OGXbox installer tools), but, upon reboot, the HDD light on the front of the xbox (x3 firmware button mod) sticks on and the system doesn't boot to dash. I've tried different HDD's and both 40 / 80 pin cables and no difference. If I just install the 200GB IDE HDD I have, it works fine and boots fast. Any ideas as to what I am doing wrong? I have the switch on the back set to Cable Select and am currently using the 80 pin IDE cable. I've tried two of those with the same result. Cheers, BigDaddyCainer
SO when I turn it on, it starts and stops a few times before it finally gets going and then when it does I get no image or sound and the light just flashes red and green. At first I thought it was my IDE adapter on my new hard drive, but when I replaced the unnamed brand one with a startech it still did it. To be clear, my xbox DOES work if I keep fucking with the power button and I can play games normally (Have not extensively tested to see if it randomly shuts off or anything after a long period of time. Anyone know what the problem could be?
