  1. Yesterday I ftp'd Conker Live and Reloaded to my Xbox v.1.0 , however the game doesn't boot up, instead it displays a message saying: "there is a problem with your disc, it may be damaged or dirty". I tried patching the game with ACL in DVD2Xbox but nothing happens, I still get the same error. Is there something more I'm not taking in account?
  2. Hi all, I have an X3 with a 1TB inside. I formatted and prepped it with the SLayers Hybrid installer. I am getting errors while trying to delete from it, write to it. Certainly the F and G partitions. Ive tried to format it with Xbox Partitioner 1.3 and that shows drive G as "ER" instead of 64 (Clusters). The split is roughly 130G and 880G. It seems just be cartain sections of the disc that are effected, as I have just copied over 30GB no problem. ANy ideas on how to proceed?
  3. Is it possible on a softmoded Xbox put an HDD larger than 120GB? If it is, how? Is it the same process as for the 120GB? Thanks
  4. Is there a tool to achieve this? I'm upgrading the HDD in my Xbox, and after the initial formatting I would like to load it with data from another PC using a sata connection instead of transferring over the network. I understand the Xbox formatted drive is a format Windows does not natively like, but is there a tool or Linux equivalent so I can mount the drive outside of the Xbox? Thanks again,
  5. Hello, I've an OG xbox that I am gradually adding more and more mods to. So far I've softmodded it and also refreshed the thermal paste on the CPU and GPU. My next plan is to flash the TSOP using Hexen, and then replace the HDD. The question is, SSD or HDD? I'll be using a cheap eBay IDE to SATA adaptor, plus an 80 wire IDE cable. My choice is between a 120 GB SSD, or a 500 GB HDD. These are both pretty much the same price. Would there be any notable difference in using the SSD? I'm probably not going to load too many games, but want to essentially load up the 'best of' xbox and then fill the rest of the space with emulators. Thanks,
  6. Hi Guys So I wanted to share what I was recently able to do using xboxhdm23usb. So I softmodded my xbox, then what I did was null my hdd key. After that I backed up my eeprom and dropped it into the xboxhdm23usb folder. I then took out the hdd and connected it to an IDE to usb adapter and then used xboxhdm23usb to unlock the drive. (This was easy because I nulled the key). I then used a program called HDD raw copy tool and was able to make a complete image of the Xbox HDD. I then relocked the drive and put it back in the xbox (Working fine). I then connected up a spare drive and used HDD raw copy tool to clone the image i made back onto the new drive, then used xboxhdm23usb to lock it. I then popped that into the Xbox and it worked as well. I then used xbpartitioner to give the remaining space to the F Drive. The nice thing about this method, is that I now have an image back up of an xbox HDD with a nulled key. So I can easy clone it to a new drive and pop it into any xbox (Provided they nulled the key on that xbox as well). Let me know what you guys think.
  7. Hallo, I have a softmod xbox 1.6,and want to Upgrade HDD that is full with xbox gam.es emus, how can i do without formating the hdd. The hhd is from another xbox with Chip. Thank You, and sorry for My Bad english
  8. Hi Guys So I've searching around the internet to find an answer, hoping you guys can shed some light on it. I'm looking to upgrade my Xbox with a 3TB HDD. Now I know this will give the F and G partitions the make 1TB size each. Now I've been searching around and was wondering if you could give the remaining space to the E partition? According to this forum: https://www.xbmc4xbox.org.uk/forum/viewtopic.php?t=7353 Rocky5 said as long as your Xbox is soft or hard modded, the kernel will be patched to run any partition size, as long as you don't mess with the C partition. Someone has increased his E partition to 10GB and it worked, but I want to put it into the 500GB + range. Please let me know what you guys think?
  9. I have Original Xbox, I had it since it was released... recently I powered it up, HDD keeps on spinning like crazy and never stops. I got the green screen with "contact support". I pulled the HDD 20GB and tried to connect it to my desktop, the HDD spins with none stop, and the drive was not shown/recognized by my PC. I am not sure if I install a new IDE HDD would work/boot. I searched for Xbox OS/dashboard to download so that I can install on the new HDD, it seems that I only need to install the HDD, and the Xbox will load from the build-in eprom/chip. Please correct me if I understood wrong
  10. I don't see any reasons why it shouldn't but I was thinking about buying one
  11. On one of my xboxs the molex coord doesn't power up HDD's I've been able to get the Xbox running by powering the HDD by using the molex connector from another Xbox to power up the HDD. Any idea on how to fix this?
  12. Trying to upgrade my HDD to 1TB on a 1.4 soft modded Xbox. The 1TB drive is 2.5" when I clone the drive with chimp should I plug in the molex splitter to power the adapter or can I simply just use he adapter without a y molex splitter. Just tried to clone with chimp without the y molex splitter and said couldn't lock the hdd
  13. Hi, Love this forum and got a lot of great info from here. Recently I dusted of my good old softmod and gave this all a go again after many years. I was able to tsop the xbox and install a larger harddisk. My friends picked up on the idea of having a xbox with emustation and asked me to build one for them as well. So I ended up buying and working on 6 xboxes and harddrives that all went trough their own struggle to get the job done but hey, I made it. Thing is though, at some point I used chimp to format a 500gb WD and it locked it by the end of the session in one of the xboxes. this drive ended up not being used and now I want to use it again but I do not know what xbox it's from. Being all wel prepped I did read all the eeproms from al the xboxes trough simple serial eeprom reader. Extracted them straight of the board with no issues but the sidenote is I never did with this 500gb WD hdd installed. And this is where my confusion is, because what I understand is the eeprom is xbox specific. And the harddrive password is generated trough the hdd serial number and model based on the eeprom. (Please correct me if I'm wrong). So all the eeproms I have when I read them in live info beta 3 show me other harddrives. So I connected the harddrive to my ide port refreshed the disk managment, it pops up under disk# and I try to select it in live info without any luck. I tried running chimp in order to unlock the hdd in the slave disk options with all the available eeproms but had no luck. Basically, and I'm sorry this is a long read, I'm trying to find a way to backwards engineer my hdd locking code with the 6 eeproms I have available that all state a different make/brand/sn hdd. Thank you in advance Pascal
  14. Greetings from Greece and congrats for the valuable info shared in this site. This is my first post here although I' ve been reading a lot of threads and have TSOP flashed - modded several XBOXes in the past. Generaly i upgrade hard drives by installing 5400 rmp WD green ones which work great. So my question is simple. Is it ok if I install an 7200rpm 3.5 inch HDD? My biggest concern is the higher temps those HDD generate and how this affects the other internal components of the box.
  15. I have an unused 80GB 2.5" IDE HDD bought for an old laptop which died before I got around to fitting it. The problem or maybe not a problem is the 2.5" IDE to 3.5" IDE adapter. I've found what I think are suitable ones on Ebay/Amazon (F 2.5" with M 3.5" to connect to the IDE cable). But the thing I'm not sure about is the power supply. The ones I've found have a (F) Molex connector + cable but only wired with red and black cables. This I assume is 5v and ground ie. normal Molex power connections. Is this enough to power the 2.5" HDD? It should be but it got me thinking about why the Xbox HDD power supply has both 5v and 12v connections (red + ground and yellow + ground) if they're not both needed. If a standard 3.5" HDD in the Xbox needs more than 12v available perhaps a 2.5" HDD needs more than 5v too. Knowledgeable advice appreciated.
  16. So im working with a v1.0 xbox and I am trying to install the img from a 2tb Origins build. I have my original HDD softmodded and it is working fine. I was able to null the original HDD key and pull the EEPROM off and after successfully mounting the img to a new 2TB HDD was able to lock it with the pulled EEPROM with XBHDM. When I turn on the system with the new HDD it will show the xbox logo with "Microsoft" in white on the bottom, then it goes to a black screen. The LED stays green. Looking around I saw suggested that this meant that the softmod or .xbe was broken or that the shortcut linked to the needed .xbe didn't exist, so using XBHDM and Xplorer360 i was able to get into the new HDD and I was messing around with the config and .xbe files and got it to work at one point (kinda, and i'm not sure what exactly made it work, i know i know i should have taken better notes of what i was doing but this was a several day process and I had tried like 50+ different modifications/combinations). It would boot into a black screen as normal but when i opened up the disk drive the screen would flash and I would get another xbox logo splash screen without the Microsoft in white on the bottom, the LED would turn orange, and then it would boot up into the new dashboard/image. That worked fine for a few hours, even after disconnecting power and reconnecting. Then all of the sudden it stopped going to the new dashboard and img when opening the disk drive and the screen will stay black (i figured it may be an issue with taking a long time to load so i've let it sit there for 15min+ and nothing happens). I am at a complete loss, im somewhat tech savy but I have no idea how to even approach this fix. Any help would be much appreciated and I thank you in advance! Edit - I used the Splintercell save to softmod via USB, which worked fine to softmod with the old HDD. With the new HDD in it will not load any disks, be it the Splinter Cell game, Hexen Tools, or the Rocky5 Softmod Extras, and I cannot do anything but power off when its on the black screen.
  17. i get dirty disc error, any hdd fix or tutorial?
  18. Okay, so I really messed up. I recently got back two 1.6 Xboxes that I haven't had for ages, immediately set out to soft mod them. Looked up and used the Rocky5 kit, worked perfectly, got the first one up fine. But then when I went to FTP some files to it and noticed the Partitions were setup in a way that my file wouldn't fit. Found a partitioning tool called Xbpartitioner 1.3b or something like that, and without doing any research I transferred it to the Xbox to resize the HDD partition. This erased the Rocky5 dashboard and put up an UnleashedX dashboard. I hadn't access to DVDs, so wanted to install the Rocky5 Extra Disc to the Xbox and run it from there. Found some type of program that claimed to mount and run the Extras Disc, performed the upgrade, Xbox came back to an error message. (Error Message 13). Some Googling says that this appears to happen when the dashboard can't be loaded. I softmodded the other Xbox successfully using the same Rocky5 setup and it's working fine. I was hoping to clone the working Xbox drive over to bricked one, but Chimp is listing the drive as locked and I can't access the EEPROM key. I believe the Rocky5 mod backs up to the HDD in the E:\ Directory, but I also believe the partition may have erased it? I went out, got some DVDs and burned the Extras Disc. It doesn't run in the Bricked Xbox, but loads up fine in the new one. The bricked HDD no longer contains the Exploited Savegames I used to initiate the softmod. I can load Retail games, but booting the dashboard leads to the error message (Error 13). Also saw suggestions to insert an Xbox Live game like Halo 2. This did not work either, the game simply reloaded instead of returning to the Dashboard. So basically what can I do here? Should I be looking to get an IDE to USB converter, so that I can copy the Exploited Savegames onto the HDD and re-load the Softmod? Should I be trying to get the EEPROM backup of the E:\ Drive, assuming it wasn't formatted? Is there something else I can do? I've done lots of searching and haven't found anyone else as stupid as me.
  19. So im looking to put a bigger HDD in my Xbox, thinking of going with a 1TB 3.5 Sata WD Blue from Amazon https://www.amazon.co.uk/WD-TB-PC-Hard-Drive/dp/B0088PUEPK/ref=sr_1_3?crid=UZ86BA3UVMYA&keywords=1tb+sata+3.5+hard+drive&qid=1582495127&sprefix=1tb+sata%2Caps%2C161&sr=8-3 With this Sata adaptor https://www.amazon.co.uk/LEAGY-Parallel-DVD-ROM-Interface-Convert/dp/B07B75Q64F/ref=pd_sbs_147_4/260-7291144-6127719?_encoding=UTF8&pd_rd_i=B07B75Q64F&pd_rd_r=cf4df938-b886-4c79-aef5-39c01aa7ecf1&pd_rd_w=UjTRD&pd_rd_wg=wCccd&pf_rd_p=96cae456-8d7a-4bc1-91c7-9b20b4dfd7c9&pf_rd_r=HSKB83AFMNH4X3KVF2B4&psc=1&refRID=HSKB83AFMNH4X3KVF2B4 With this ATA 133 80 Pin IDE Cable. https://www.amazon.co.uk/Goobay-50670-Cable-Drives-Transfer/dp/B000TND1VI/ref=pd_sbs_147_2/260-7291144-6127719?_encoding=UTF8&pd_rd_i=B000TND1VI&pd_rd_r=3e57dd4b-7ab9-4452-9c55-d726462db76f&pd_rd_w=G0yqV&pd_rd_wg=c8KO0&pf_rd_p=96cae456-8d7a-4bc1-91c7-9b20b4dfd7c9&pf_rd_r=5M2TA3D5Q09SFV5WZEMG&psc=1&refRID=5M2TA3D5Q09SFV5WZEMG And good ? or can anybody advise me please of anything cheaper / better. Thanks al for looking and helping me.
  20. Hi Team, So i picked up a XBOX, but sadly the DVD drive is destroyed and so is the HDD. The mother board its self works fine. Is there anyway to get this up and running?
  21. Hello everyone. I've asked this question on FB, but would like to verify with this crowd here. I have softmodded an v1.6 using Rocky5 most recent version. I would like to swap to a 2TB SATA drive. I understand this can be done with a hot swap, cloning the original drive with chimp and then formatting with xb partitioner. Is this correct? Why does this work if the bios is supposed to need LBA-48 to see a large drive? Is it because each partition is small enough to not need LBA-48? Thanks in advance.
  22. Hello, i'm trying to finish up this Millennium Falcon mod i'm working on. I soldered a wire to the #39 pin to the negative leg of my led and the other leg of my led to the 12v and the 5v wires on my molex connector and light comes on but never blinks. It just stays on constant What am i doing wrong?

    Hdd Lock

    Evening guys, a friend of mine got his xbox fried and gave me a 640 gb hdd sata. The problem is that the hdd is lock. Is there a way to recover this hdd without the xbox it was mounted on?
  24. Hey, I should introduce myself.... I'm Noob sooo... I've modded my xbox (I guess its a softmod, but since I upgraded the hdd to a WD Blue 2TB I guess its a hardmod..) First I followed a tutorial to softmod my xbox to get unleashX, but after that I upgraded my xbox to rocky5's emustation. After downloaded tons of games and different emulators I gained to much balls and deleted wrong files.... nothing too bad, because the emustation still works, but I want to transfer files using my desktop instead of Ftp(filezilla). So I unlocked my hdd using configmagic (something like that) and now Im trying to connect it to my pc. My pc does detect the HDD, but the files won't show up.... I already tried using other programs, such as partybuffalo or xplorer360, but they do not detect any harddrive at all.... So in short: UnleashX to Rocky5 ftp is annoying, so want to directly transfer files Hdd is detected by PC, but doesnt show up Im using a USB HDD adapter and a WD Blue 2TB (images attached) Cheers
  25. So I TSOPed my Xbox and spent days building my setup, ripping games etc. I got a little too confident and tried to do a ram upgrade and trashed my motherboard. I’m planning to TSOP another Xbox and want to just stick this HDD in it so I can pick up where I left off before the fatal ram upgrade attempt. I’d like to think I had the foresight to keep the drive unlocked but I’m not sure if I did or not. Is there any guidance on how to best accomplish this?
