Fixing Error 16

Recommended Posts

I have an original xbox that has the dreaded error 16. I researched fixing this many years ago and at the time seemed like too much trouble. I'm wondering if there are any new methods that don't require a second HDD to swap back and forth? From my most resent research it sounds like there might be a way to bypass the issue to fix it using a dvd?

Any help would be appreciated!

Is your console modded?

If so, how: softmodded or hardmodded?

If the stock MS/Xbox dashboard is not already version 1.00.5960.01, you can load an Xbox Live enabled game with the same or later release date of Halo 2. Disconnect the Network cable, then go into the Xbox Live section of the game's menu.  It should start the dashboard updater.  Installation of the latest dashboard should fix the error 16 problem.

If your Xbox's stock dashboard is already v1.00.5960.01, the dashupdater will not run since you are already running the latest dashboard version.  The error 16 fix in this case is more complex.
