This Was the Problem

Recommended Posts

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.

I don't have any problem with this one, but I always change capacitors by panasonic caps, and check twice all solders.

This adapter only use 5V even if the 12V is conected

I have 2 of the same and both work fine.

But the first of them had a solder bridge on the controler chip which i have fixed.

Maybe you have se same problem and maybe it could help to resolder the joints on the resisors and caps and power like i did on both of mine. The original used solder is horrible.

But i also have to admit that i bought both as amazon deal for 5 euros each so for me it was worth the hassle. ;)

I have several of them  in use and I have only had one faulty in the last 3 years and that did not work at all.

I have had more problems with the IDE leads than the adapters.

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

      I finally got the parts for internal mounting of the OGx360, but i am not sure what to do with the reciever. Anyone got good ideas for where to put it internally, and in that case, how to get to the sync button easily?
      Is external mount best?

      Hey, I'm having an issue where I cannot load Ninja massive directly. I have the program files in my G drive and in any tutorial I've watched, when you go into emulators and click on ninja it loads right up, but Ive tried from XMBC, and unleash dashboards, and no go. only way for me to load is to go to file explorer and launch directly from the default.xbe. I tried to "point" to the file within XMBC, but cannot locate that particular file from there, only in file explorer. any suggestions?
