Yesterday was the first time i've tried saving one of my games to the HD. Everything went fine (after a handful of attempts because my dvd reader sucks) with doom3, hitman2, and red faction2. So i went to try them out today, pressed play on doom and it looks like it froze on the evox loading screen. tried it a second/3rd time with the same result. also tried with hitman2. this time it got passed the evox loading screen and went to a black screen, but froze there. last i tried redfaction2 and that played fine. I'm really still a noob to modded xbox's, so if anyone knows what might cause a prob. like this please let me know, i'm very frustrated seeing as i just got it, thanks a lot!!!!

:edit: i'm trying to burn doom3 again now without deleting the other one to see if it plays that way, i'll let u know how it work out

trying to save black now... farthest i've gotten into saving it was 23% and it just stops on me and says it's on the HDD. but when i go to play it, the dirty disk error comes up, like that DDE screen is all it saved. i took the casing apart on the xbox to listen to the dvdrom, and it's making a lot of beeping noises (which i figured was ok) and it honestly sounds like it's spinning the disks slightly off balance. I can hear a kind of whiring, whobbling noise coming from it. i guess i'm back at my original problem of needing a new dvd drive.... too bad the people i bought it from on ebay won't respong to my emails.... grr.gif

1) use DVD2XBOX to rip your games

2) read the first PINNED topic in Game backup Forums for fixes.

3) might want to get a better dash than, Evox

4) clean the DVD DRIVE

thanks for the reply! unfortunatly i haven't yet messed with going from my laptop to my xbox, so i'm kinda stuck w/ evox right now. what's wrong w/ it? i'm lookin at dvd2xbox now, but my reader just keeps skippin so i guess i'm screwed w/ that app too... i'd love to take apart the dvd drive and clean it, but it's 2 months old and the tards that sold it to me put a sticker on the seam where it comes apart saying "warranty void if opened". now i gotta wait on these jackoffs to get back to me w/ return info before i can play these 2 games i just bought today. will read up on that backup info, thanks again

:edit: i ejected BLACK because of that skipping noise when i went into dvd2xbox and put it back in. where it says DVD: it said video 11MB. doesn't seem right to me already. pressed a and it just froze, not sure why, tried it again, froze.... this fuckin sucks, any suggestions besides throwin it out the window?
