Hey folks! So recently I played with my TSOP flashed 2tb Xbox 1.0 and I have discovered two titles that have been giving me issue: Arctic Thunder: Won't get past the loading screen before entering a race Midtown Madness 3: Randomly freezes during races and missions (I can confirm this happening while booting from disc as well) Just FYI, clearing the cache didn't work for me. So here are the specific details of my hard drive in case people are wondering: Hitachi HUA722020ALA331 https://www.amazon.com/Hitachi-Ultrastar-HUA722020ALA331-Enterprise-Refurbished/dp/B01CM85C0K
A friend gave me a v1.0 board that was causing problems for him. I put it in a standard early case, attached everything and proceeded to test it. I wanted to update the BIOS (TSOP) so I attempted to run the Hexen DVD. The DVD tray would open, I placed the disk in the tray and pushed the button to close. The Unleash X menu continued to show "Open". I tried this with two known good working DVD drives - one a Samsung and the other a Hitachi.. I changed cables and PSU with no difference. I also checked to see if there were any bent pins for the DVD power cable. All good. I switched-out the power button/DVD drive button harness. No difference. Then I tried a good Thomson DVD drive. Everything worked flawlessly.. What is that all about? Is there a different command structure for the early v1.0 boards that limits which DVD drives will correctly operate with them?
