Hdd Upgrade Problems
Posted 03 September 2002 - 05:11 AM
I originally flashed my bios with an Xtender v1.1 bios, then I hooked up a dvd rom from my computer to the xbox to read the EvoX 1.8.458 disk (the xbox dvd drive wouldn't read my cd-r). Shortly after I upgraded the bios to the EvoX 2.2 bios. Everything has worked great for about 2 weeks.
I just went out and bought a 120 gig drive, copied everything off the old drive, and installed the new one. Now, when I hook up the dvd drive from my PC, the xbox does red/green/red/green when it worked fine as the primary DVD drive before. Because of this, I can't load EvoX 1.8.458 off the CD-r and I can't format the drive. I can't use the PC DVD drive with the new or original xbox hard drive. Does anyone know what I might be doing wrong? I haven't tried to reflash the bios with the Xtender bios, but I plan to try tomorrow. I don't know why the Xtender might let me use my DVD drive as the DVD drive when the EvoX bios will not...?? Either way, I need the EvoX bios to support large drives.
I have also tried the complex v1 (4627 kernal) and Evox v2.3 bios with no luck, red/green/red/green
Thanks in advance!

One thing that comes to mind is the master/slave/cable select jumpers on your PC DVD Rom drive and your new hard drive. One would think that the hard drive should be jumped for master and the DVD drive for slave, but I've seen cases (mostly on PCs) where it didn't work and the hard drive had to be cable select and the DVD drive slave. You can try playing with that.

Going to try the old method to hook the original hd up to computer and copy it to the new one there, then put it back in the box. All from this post:
I'll keep you posted if that works, I think this is quite strange.
Oh yeah, I've tried just about every combo of cs, mst, slave configs I can think of, nothing seems to work.. but the DVD drive is definitely functional.
