I just got an Xecuter 2.3B lite+ chip and installed it successfully. After this, I installed the Xecuter2 4983 bios ( 1x 1mb). The bios installation was successful and when i boot my xbox it says XECUTER2 underneath the xbox logo. I got EvoX 3935 and made the folder with the default.xbe and the evox.ini into a .xiso with ExtractXISO. After this I burned the image onto a dvd-r with nero 6. I was on a role, chip installed flawlessly, bios installed flawlessly.... what could go wrong smile.gif. Fate hit me and once i put the EvoX dash dvd in my drive it said that "XBOX can't recognize disc" (this was in the default ms bios). i tried 4 different times and made 4 really expensive coasters in the process.

please help a no0b ? sad.gif





PS i have a v 1.0 xbox with a thomson drive.

also, my xbox won't recognize a burned audio cd either (i tried some cd just to test it). shouldn't my bios allow my dvd drive to read all of that stuff

thomson drives are picky with media...especially cdr's...did you rename the dummy like abc.bin?

i just named it dummy.bin, would naming it abc do anything? by the way, i'm using dvd-r discs, not cd-r, so shouldn't it boot flawlessly?

dvd-r's should read just fine, even with a thomson, make sure you boot the xecuter bios if you want to read a burned disk (duh... laugh.gif )

what app did you use to create the iso (craxtion, qwix,...)?

i used qwix. also, i boot with my bios (i think, because the XECUTER2 label comes underneath the xbox dash when i boot my box). still, i tried 40+ times and disc wuldn't boot

I wouldnt get a philips drive, I had one in my crystal and even though it read CDR it would not read DVD-R so i swapped it for a samsung from another xbox. It reads all of my DVD-R fine, I have all my games backed up just in case, not run into a problem yet

try burning the iso with another app. i usually used nero6 but had problems with it a while back so since then, i've been using alcohol 120% and have never gotten and errors since. I have a thomson and use DVD+-R/RW and they work just fine.
