Hey everyone, I got a lot of xbox's recently and I fixed them all and softmodded all of them except one.  The last one when using rocky5s method boots the game, let's me choose the save to start the softmod but then goes to the xbox dashboard and says it cant recognize the disc.  At first I thought maybe the DVD drive was bad so I swapped it with another, ended up trying 4 others, all did the same thing.  Any advice I'd really like to get this softmodded

Perhaps check the drive jumper on HDD and DVD,    I like to manually set them rather than have them on cable select.    ( had that go horribly wrong on a PC in the past )

Have you tried one of the older softmods. I can`t think of a reason why the Rocky5 softmod wouldn`t work, but who knows, maybe an older softmod will.  Worth a try.

You could but I have never seen a master/slave on a Xbox DVD drive.

Is the AV cable a component high-definition or standard definition cable?

A high-definition (component) cable has 5 RCA jacks: 3 for Red, Green, and Blue component video output and 2 - Red and White for analog stereo audio out.

A Standard definition cable has 3 RCA jacks: 1 - Yellow for composite video out and 2 - Red and White for analog stereo audio out.

What game exploit/installer is being used?

Any chance you accidentally used the Splinter Cell PAL ones when it is NTSC?

Logical follow on from that: are you sure the console is NTSC? It could have been softmodded previously and swapped to PAL for some reason and returned to retail state region changed. With SD cables the NTSC and PAL MS dashes can appear similar at first glance.

There can be some weird things happen if the Xbox has been previously softmodded and you use the same exploitable game with different exploit/installers files. It is possibly caused by leftovers in TDATA although there's never been any real testing to prove/disprove that theory. The solution suggested is to use another exploitable game instead. Any possibility you can try that?

Yeah both save files are on the hard drive.   Worked late today so didnt get a chance to try the older softmod yet.  I've tried using splinter cell and tont hawk pro skater 4 and both do the same thing

I had a problem with using Tony Hawk pro skater 4 that would not work with the Pal (in Australia here)game save but would work with the Region free game save.

What about the NTSC/PAL console/game region matter? Have checked that too?

Probably done this but make sure the two exploit/installer saves are from a fresh source and not copied in from another Xbox.

So I couldn't get any game exploits to work the system would kick out everytime.  The system wont even boot splinter cell at all anymore.  I tried to hotswap it to my laptop using an ide to USB adapter and xplorer360.  It read it and let me remove files but freezes everytime I try to put on the new

What version of MS dashboard is installed on the problematic console? 

Not that it should matter with Rocky5's softmod installation. 

Did you power cycle the console after copying the exploited game save and softmod installer save to the Xbox's hard drive before trying to boot the original game disc?

The ms dash is 5960.  I think the original time I tried I copied the files over and then had to turn it off cause the disc drive didnt work and swapped it with a working one to play the game

Sounds like a disc drive failure issue of some sort. If it is not even reading the SC game disc now that's an indication of a disc drive problem.

Is the problem repeated with other original games' discs?

I do not understand why you needed to hotswap the HDD either, that's risking damage to the HDD unnecessarily. Couldn't you delete the existing exploitable game saves on the Xbox itself?

Do you have any attached memory cards or flash drives? If so remove them. All you should be using is a SD cable to the TV and an official MS Xbox controller ie. Duke or Controller-S..

I've put I think 4 different DVD drives in it.  That I know work, i got 11 xbox's kicking around, it will play any game but splinter cell. Even tried 4 different copies of the game.  I'm using all the stuff that came with my xbox from when I was a kid even the Duke controller.  I've tried loading rocky5 softmod files multiple times and even tried an older softmod

It sounds like a zoning problem I had the same Tony Hawks 4 would load but the game save would not work.

Soft modding is like masturbating, It get's the job done but it's nothing like the real thing.

Sorry you may have mentioned this earlier but what about the region?

If your Xbox is PAL or NTSC that someone has switched to PAL but forgot to return to NTSC when they removed a previous softmod and you're using a NTSC SC disc or visa versa that could well explain all the problems described.

      i'm not well versed on how to interpret the readings on capacitors but my understanding is that the uf should go down as the cap is wearing out. i pulled a couple of 3300uf caps off of a board and they are both reading over 8000uf in my esr meter. i tried some new caps to be certain that the meter is reading correctly and it is. why would the uf go up on an old cap?

      Hi, I soft-modded my Xbox (1.6) some years ago (I think 5) with SID 12.
       
      The soft-mod main dashboard is UnleashX. I moved it (the 3 files) from E:\ to E:\Apps and installed XBMC4XBOX in E:\ making it as my main dash (with a shorcut.xbe).
      On the HW side I replaced the IDE cable with a 80 wires one and installed a SATA III 2,5" Barracuda HDD (connected with the Sabrent ide to sata board. HDD blocked with a 2,5" to 3,5" mount)
       
      I installed a lot of Xbox games and emulators, never had a single problem but this one:
      Since the beginning it keeps resetting the time zone (it happened very often). I always set it again, in all 3 dashboards (UnleashX, XBMC and the original Dash) but it keep resetting. I remember when updating to the last XBMC version, it seemed to reset less often, but i can't tell for sure.
       
      I was some good amount of months (maybe a year) without using the Xbox and when I came back to use it I noticed the problem is changed. Now it reset all the date settings to 1 January 2007 (ironically the time zone seems to keep the settings now).
       
      The Xbox is always connected to the A/C power. I think it's a software related problem, because it seems to reset depending on the date. I gave up on manually re-setting the correct date and leaved it as it was. It never reset anymore. It started on 1/1/2007. It's been a months now and date keeps going corectly (If I set the actual current date, after one or two rebooting at max, it resets).
       
      For curiosity I checked the last @Rocky5 installer to see what has changed in the last 5 years (I have a lot of installers, old stuff though). I noticed this note about main Features:
      Clock auto set to 01/01/2019 (No more clock loops)
      It can be something related to my problem??
       
      I want to specify that I'm really good with my old SID 12 softmod, everything works 100% perfectly aside the above mentioned issue and i'm not even sure it is related to the soft-mod or to the fact I moved UnleashX files or something else.
      So, there's a way to solve it, maybe changing some settings, replacing files?? Otherwise, if it's a issue not solvable on my old soft-mod, I could consider to update it with the new 1.1.7 installer (hoping to not damage anything).
       
      If you need more infos just ask, thank you and sorry for the bad english.

      I bought a cheap sata to ide adaptor to do a 2tb install, after completion I was getting crazy long wait times for the xbox to even load it was such a disappointment .  Buy cheap buy twice!  I have a startech one now and it works fine completely night and day.  
      This forum has helped me loads already thank you.
