I have a translucent green beta Xbox that plays the beta games sent to me from MS fine. However when I try to play a rented, or store bought Xbox game with this machine I get a DVD playback error. I've been told that the beta machines will only play beta games, and not the regular released games.
Is there anything that can be done to this machine to make it play regular games?
Any help is appreciated.

If it's as simple as getting it modded, then I will gladly pay someone to mod the machine for me. If there is any other way I would still be interested.

Might want to give font/audio exploits a try.

Your bios looks for the xbe's to be signed with the debug key. So you must sign your xbe's with the debug key, and then they will run. Or you cna use a modchip with a hacked bios.

I was a Win95/98 beta tester, and they had a program where select tester could apply for the Xbox beta at that time.
So I think I'll try and locate someone in Canada to mod my Xbox, hopefully it will be fine then.
Thank you.
