Crash On 4-Button Return To Menu & Games Not Showing In Menu

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone!

Hoping to get a bit of help with two small issues. Using UnleashX with the green block theme, but having the same issues without regard to the skin selected.

First is that if I use the two triggers and the far left / far right buttons (back and something else) to return from a game to the main menu, the XBOX crashes with error 07. Power off and power on cycle sets thing right, but strange that it crashes just because I try to go back to the menu from inside a game.

Second is that loaded games don't automatically show up in the "XBOX Games" menu. For example, I've burned a disc over to the HDD and also copied one through FTP. In both instances, I had to go into the game through File Explorer, start the .xbe file, and then go back to the menu to see the game in the games list.

Any ideas?

Thanks everyone!

Blaine

Sounds like the hard drive is not setup correctly the only time that's happened to me is doing the in game reset (left and right trigger, back and black) from a install/setup DVD.

What hard drive model do you have installed? 

If it is a SATA hard drive and IDE-to-SATA adapter combo, are you using the stock 40-wire 40-pin IDE cable or an 80-wire 40-pin high-speed IDE/Ultra ATA cable?

UnleashX does not automagically add a new game to the menu list once you have added its content to the hard drive.  It only builds the menu when it starts up.

You have to restart UnleashX (reboot) or run the game and exit which restarts UnleashX.

Or, manually refresh the Game Menu.  Highlight it in the menu list (it is the selected menu item) then press the Start button and select Refresh List... in the pop-up menu that appears.

Hi! Been fighting these stupid sinus allergies for a few days, but back at it.

I was able to get UnleashX to see the newly added games by power off / power on cycling the Xbox. Good call, y'all! :) 

Still can't get the LTrig-Start-Blk-RTrg combo to behave right. Whether I exit from a game that way, or even reboot the Xbox through the menu system, still get the 07 error. I've attached a screenshot with the details of the hard drive. It's a WD Green 1TB SATA. Using this SATA-to-IDE Adapter from Amazon, which seems to be working great:

Something in the config must be off. Any ideas?

It still sounds like the hard disk is missing some files or not setup correctly.

Is it Hardmodded or softmodded

I have seen some talk about not using the WD Green drives for  Xbox's some thing to do with the parking of the heads and power saving.

Code 7 is for HDD timeout, it means either not spinning up in tie or not able to read.

I use the WD Blue or WD Black drives in my setup's

Most likely its a problem caused by the GREEN drive.  The GREEN features need to be disabled on the hard drive.  There were tools available from WD to disable the idle spin down feature of the GREEN drive.

Use a BLUE or better WD drive that doesn't spin down which then takes time to get ready after it does.  The Xbox does not handle that well as you've seen.

When the Xbox attempts to access the drive it is not ready thus the Xbox throws the error 7 message - HDD timeout.

That's pretty much  the same as what I said  in post 6.

Thanks everyone! Good call on the green drive. I'm going the 2TB route shortly and I'll be sure to use the WD Black or Blue route. The Green was a donor drive from a friend to allow me to get the HDD swap process mastered. It'll head over to a PS2 to live life there. It seems to perform just fine in the PS2 as I've installed a smaller but same Green series drive in one with a SATA adapter and it rolls right along. Yeah, I know PS2 is a four-letter word here, so I'm back on track on the OG.

Thanks!

Hi Blaine!

I think I`m at the same error as you have. UneashX, trying to IGR and it crashes. Then it struggles to spin up the HDD (new hdd, 1 TB Seagate ST31000525SV) so it gives up on the hdd and ends up flashing green. I get nothing on the screen though. I got the 80-wire IDE cable and the sata-IDE adapter. Everything else works perfectly except for the IGR.

 

Did you end up resolving yout issue?

Hi Noomi! Well, not really. I've just kind of accepted that it's part of the deal to power cycle and move forward. I've tried fresh installs on v1.0 and v1.4 consoles with several types of HDDs, including the modern WD Blue 2TB HDD, but each setup poses this same issue. It's not that power cycling to get back to UnleashX is a big deal, but it's more convenient to get there from the controller and probably a bit less wear and tear on the Xbox if it doesn't have to be power cycled. Not like they're getting any younger. You know, like me. :)

Hi again, Dave.

Just red a post in the facebook group where a guy with a 1.6 and Aladdin is had the exact same problem, and solved it!

 

Quote: "So after a year of trying to fix my error problem with shortcuts/boot discs/ numerous attempts by any means to fix this problem I found the fix. So my friend's Smithis And I were talking and I asked about the IGR setting in EVTool that lists 2 different settings. One setting is listed as "more compatible" the other labeled "quick". Everything I have read had told me sata HDD's have a hard time spinning up fast enough before the BIOS error's out. Smithis said to me "go ahead try the quick setting it can't hurt anything".

After flashing the Bios with quick IGR settings it freaking worked......IT WORKED. FINALLY!!!!!!!"

 

I have downloaded EVTool. How do i know which BIOS to get and to modify? And, when I have modified it, how do i put it in my xbox?

Hi Noomi

This is from my dropbox and it has the EV tool and the 2 types of bios files 

For the version 1.6 use the bios M8plus_16 and I normally untick all but the Xlogo and I use fan speed 30%

So far so good. .bin file ready, ftped it to hdd. I`ve only flashed from hexen disc before. If i go through EvoX for example, where is the menu option to flash the BIOS? I cant find it.

There is no option in the Evox program to flash the BIOS.

I mean the EVtools.

On the hexen disk there is a app called Xblast install and use that, Xblast will look for C:/bios folder if your flashing via HDD, Or you can flash via your network.

Hi all

Going to throw in my 2 cents, although they're probably not worth much:

The HDD-timeout-error is strange... I myself have 2x modded xboxes which each rock a 2TB WD Green drive, and IGR works fine no matter what (in game, from homebrew, menus, dash, after idling for long time, etc.).

Does somebody know the exact command that IGR (in game reset) triggers when executed? Maybe it's not an issue of the spinup time of the hdd but rather the command itself which points to another (probably wrong) directory to load the dash. In this case the xbox is not able to find the default dash and spits out an error. Maybe, only powercycling points to the right place?

 

Let me be clear: this is only a suspicion. I have little knowledge of these things... Maybe someone of you with more knowledge can bust this theory?

 

Greetings!

      Hi all

       
      I am a new member, so am not sure if this posting is in the correct place, but any help would be really appreciated.


       
      I bought a modded Xbox with XBMC/Coinops4 on it about 6-7 years ago and then stored it away without really trying it out. In all there are about 5,000 emulated arcade and console games present.


       
      I recently decided to start looking at it properly, and so far it seems to be working fine (on a HD ready LCD) except for the following issues/queries. Although not a technical person I have spent the last 2-3 weeks scouring the internet for information/answers to the below, but have not been able resolve/clarify them. 


       
      1) None of the NES games work, even though all their ROMS are present a folder named "F:\Emulation\Coinop4\Romsconsoles".


       
      e.g. The ABADOX.NES Rom is located in "F:\Emulation\Coinop4\Romsconsoles\NES_Abadox.zip".
      But whenever I try and run this game I get message "Error Opening D:\Romsconsoles\NES\NES_Abadox.zip ... No such file or directory  PRESS B"


       
      On reading this error message I appreciate that when selecting a NES game, the system appears to be looking in the wrong directory but how do I fix it ?


       
      2) After much internet searching I found out how to enable the 480p/720p settings by changing PAL to NSTC (and using component cables). On the 720p setting, the XMBC dashboard writing looks far clearer than it did when running in the default PAL 576i setting.
      However although all the emulated console/arcade games still look OK, they do not appear to be any sharper/clearer than when using the original PAL setting or when I just use just the 480p setting or even when I simply use a RGB cable. Am I missing something or does the 720p setting only apply to the dashboard and not the actual emulated arcade/console games? This question has really perplexed me !


       
      3) When running an Amiga game the system usually asks me to load a floppy disc. The Coinops Instruction Manual says that you should press the START button. However this does not work. Any ideas what I should do ? The same issue is also present for some X68000 games.

       
      Thanks in advance for any help/guidance.

      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? 🙁

      G'day all!
       
      i've recently got myself a soldering iron and am eager to TSOP my 1.1. I've not yet used the specific soldering iron (waiting for a practice kit to arrive in the mail) but i do have some experience with soldering so i generally know what i'm in for. The main issue is that the fear of messing something up and rendering the console useless is immense! I've barely used it as is so as to not wear out the hard drive, so it'd be a shame to have to bin it.
      What would be the correct method to join the required points. From many of the sources i've seen, the general strat (without using conductive ink or wire) seems to be
      apply solder to iron apply iron to points and move it around for no more than ~2 seconds pray that the points have been bridged is this correct? would it be a good idea to use flux on the points or would it not really do anything?
       
      Cheers!
