Placing a Non Modded XBox's Hard Drive In a Hard Modded XBox.


Recommended Posts

My original xbox died 10 years ago and the drive has been sitting on the shelf ever since. I recently installed an Aladdin XT Plus2 chip in a 1.6 Xbox and I have hexen19 burned onto a DVD. How Do I replace the stock drive with the drive from my old u modded xbox?

The reason I want to use the old drive is that I want to transfer my save files off of it then place a new drive in the xbox, if this isn't possible, is there another way to transfer my files off the old drive. 

The drive is a Seagate not a WD.

If the old Xbox hard drive was locked to the old main board it won't work but it's not going to damage anything by trying it.

If you get error 6 then it's locked to the old Xbox and it's near impossible to unlock it..

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

      Got a 1.6 crystal in pretty great condition here with one serious problem - DVD drive (SDG-605) is dead, error 12.
      Tried swapping a known working DVD drive in and using exactly the same power+IDE cable+HDD it successfully boots to dash so it's definitely the SDG-605 causing the error.
      If anyone has any working DVD drives they are willing to part with, especially if they're in the UK, that would be great.
      Otherwise, it's going to be the eBay lottery, and I'm not feeling lucky. 🦖

      Hello there, I recently decided to give a second chance to my old Xbox, my parents bought it to me back in 2004 when I was 12 years old. it is a v1.0 and always has booted EvoX, even to this day, the problem is that I can't find any modchip or TSOP. Maybe it's my lack of expertise but I thought that EvoX only boot in a hardmoded machine, so where it is? And if there is no chip, how can it boot EvoX?
      I've already removed and cleaned the clock capacitor leak, no visible corrosion.
