Error code 7

Recommended Posts

I have recently acquired an original xbox and to start off with it seemed fine, a short while later the game I was playing crashed and it showed an error screen. Now when I try to start it up, before it gets to the home screen the xbox starts making a funny noise and the green light starts flashing red. The error screen now appears with error code 7. I discovered from watching YouTube videos that means there is a problem with the harddrive. Taking the console apart and turning it on confirms the noise is coming from the harddrive. I understand that you can not swap the harddrive in the original xbox without modding it. I can not find any information on what to do next to get it working. Is it fixable? Please help.

Thank you

The easy way is fit a modchip then you can replace the HDD and use a install disk to set up the new drive.

The other way is to make a eeprom reader to get the hard dive key then to can use PC based program to make a new had drive.

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