Help! Error 9
Posted 19 July 2006 - 08:09 PM
I know that the ribon cable is fine and so is the hard drive, so it has to be something on the motherboard, i tried touching up the solder points for the ata conector, but still no luck.
If this helps anyone, it is modded with an X3 and has a 250gb hdd with no dvd drive (with the case that i modded, it wouldn't fit)
Please help >_<
xbox version 1.4

Your Xbox motherboard is having trouble communicating with the Hard Drive. Check cables, this is probably due to an ATA controller on the motherboard and not due to the hard drive itself. (my personal experience, try replacing the hard drive and see how it goes) My recommendation for most is to replace the Motherboard and Hard drive as a pair.

how do i unlock the 250 gb hard drive that i had in my other xbox?
I was smart and backed up all of my eeprom files to a memcard that i can read on my softmod xbox
i just have no idea really how to use those to unlock my hard drive, lol
and is the code that locks the hard drive the hdd key or the hdd password?

the only problem with that is that with my current mobo (1.0 or 1.1) there are two chips next to each other that look like the eeprom and i can't tell which one to replace.
any advice would greatly be apriciated ^ _ ^
