Brand new member, please forgive me if I do something wrong here....  I tried searching, I swear!!!!!

I'm not a huge collector, but I got a big box of Xbox stuff from someone locally. I already have a modded and a stock OG Xbox, really bought his box for the controllers and games. He said he was in the military and bought his Xbox in Japan. I can't find any info online about it. Is it rare? Is it common? Are there any hardware differences?

 

Btw, yes I combed the rare hardware thread here and didn't find anything

 

Thanks in advance!

There are some rare boxes that were Japan only, is yours just a black one or is it a different colour? Post some pics and im sure someone here will be able to give you some more info :)

There is nothing different or special about Japanese consoles, no. Not unless it was a limited edition version, which it's not.

That Xbox is a 1.0 though, so it has a bad clock capacitor that needs to be removed ASAP before it destroys the motherboard.

that is a jap console, look at the power sticker 100v.

if you are going to use it anywhere but japan change the psu for your local variant.

U.S. models all state the AC power supply input level from 100V to 127V.

The original owner probably bought it at the BX where stationed in Japan.  US model.

There's a Japanese console listed on eBay right now being sold as non-working for parts / repair / mod.

      I am selling my version 1.6 Xbox in a transparent ghost case.  It has built in red cold cathodes, a Xerc XE, internally mounted microsoft dvd dongle, and 2TB hard drive.  On the hard drive are all NTSC released games, all of the exclusive NTSC-J games, and some of the exclusive PAL games.  Here is a video of the Xbox I am talking about

      hey guys!
      not sure if this is the right sub, but well...
      recently i was clearing out my basement and stumbled across an official XBox Promotional DVD (pics attached below). If I remember correctly, these DVDs were given out to people preordering the system in europe (although I'm not sure about this)...
      Anyway, the disc is packed with cool artsy dvd-menus, game-trailers, demos and other stuff like the official "life is short, play more"-commercial (you know which one), etc.
      I have no clue if this DVD is really rare, but I think it's worth asking and this is definitely the right place to ask. so, let me know if you know anything about this dvd.
      if it's rare and requested by the peeps here, i'm going to create an iso out of it.
       
      greetings and happy modding!

      Hello,
      My Brother and I Mod chipped  an xbox back in the day but I'm just now coming back to original xbox modding. So fair I have soft modded, Tsop flashed EVO F+G, installed a 80pin IDE with a 2TB SATA hard drive, used HEXEN 2019 to set up the new hard drive and partition the HDD with 64bit and splitting the F and G using the included defaults included in the disc partitioner, and am now having trouble FTPing the rest of the games. 
      It started well, I was able to move ruffly 250GB into my games folder in the F drive when the FTP program I am using failed. I was able to move the rest of the games in my "XBOX HDD ready (#-I) [20140930]" folder into the games folder in the G drive. A few games I tested wouldn't play (IE Conker Live and Reloaded) so deleted it and I tried making a "games 2" folder in the F drive and re sent Conker Live and Reloaded. It would not go.
       
      My goal for the system is to have the entire collection of OG xbox games, and maybe some emulators. I don't understand why my F drive seems to be limited to 250'ish GB when the Home screen says there is 676,539.13MB free.  Any help appreciated.  
       
      Also, I did try to get a 2TB HDD torrent downloaded from arcade punks that was all ready set to go but after a week in and less then 70GB I gave up, with no upload or download caps. If there is a reasonable torrent that has all the OGxbox games and is plug and play that may solve my problems.
