I have a new XBOX, Samgsung Drive, the box was manufatured in October of 2002.
I installed the X2L and removed the jumper for the v1.1 BIOS. Everything seemed to work great, I loaded Evox and I loaded NexGen (I decided that I would stick with Evox for now as I knew it well).
I FTP'd into the box and I formatted the F: Drive and had a wonderful afternoon. Then I tried to play a backup., it refused to boot.and the system remained at the Evox screen. So I tried another backup. No joy. Then I tried an original, it booted fine. To make a long story short, all my original games boot OK but NONE of my backups boot at all.
I used to have a 1.0 box with a Messiah-X and I know all these backups play fine.
I am stumped, as Evox is running, I can only assume the modchip is isntalled propery, but it definitly discriminates between backups and originals.
Any ideas? Is this something obvious?
(I am not going to used the "C" word though....)

Maybe they worked fine on your old box, but the new samsung might not like them...
I thought the samsung reads most anything....
Did you try booting from the game, or have evox boot, then start the dvd game?

Whoever said the Samsung drive was the one to get is an ASS....

As for me - nothing I have tried has been any use. I will have to see about getting another new XBOX.

my modded asian x-box with samsung drive (SGD-605) has no problem reading Ricoh DVD+R, but not too forgiving on the DVD+RW. perhaps u may want to try using other make of DVD+R.

i just backup a new game on DVD+R and this time I am using Verbatim (cheaper compared to Ricoh DVD+R)
fyi .. my setup
asian xbox v1.1
80gb WD harddisk (locked)
ALX2+ Modchip with X2 4973 Bios
HP DVD200e (USB2.0)
Burn @ 1X with UDF (No Joliet)

From what I've seen, the Samsungs read CD-R and CD-RW better, but are less effective at reading DVD-R and DVD+R.
I have a Thompson drive, and am perfectly happy with it; I have a DVD-R burner and have no need to boot CD-R.
