Before Modding My Xbox, Should I Return It?
Posted 27 February 2004 - 02:34 PM
After reading around, it seems this is a common problem w/Thompson drives. I just ordered my modchip, but I'm wondering if I shouldn't take it back to BestBuy first to get it replaced w/a unit w/out a Thompson drive before doing the mod.

And yes if the drive looks messed up return it first before modding.
I've seen a lot of new faulty X-Boxes... however they were replaced by older refurb boxes!

having to try a bunch of different disks to get one to work was not appealing to me

Host a Halo party, when someone isn't paying too much attention to their Xbox, open it up, take out their non-Thompson drive and replace it with yours. Then put that one in you Xbox!
Seriously though, if you have one friend who only casually uses their Xbox and has a non-Thompson, propose a switch. They may agree to it and it's not like they really lose out anyway.
Just an idea.

EDIT you may need to knock off the DVD drive check from your bios using xbtool though
Heck I believe you can replace it with another HD then
