I recently modded my old xbox v1.0 with the X3 CE chip with x_3294 bios and everything went great. I bought a new Hard drive a WD Caviar Blue 160 GB (WD1600JBRTL) and installed it with no prob the box read it and i used disk tools in the bios to format and partition the drive again everything worked fined. My box was up and running for about a week until i brought it over to a friends house and when i took it home the box would not read the hdd and i would get the most hated 07 error screen. I tryed taking the hdd out and installing in my comp with no prob and formated the drive again hoping that a fresh start was all that was needed. However the box will not read it and it makes a very faint clicking noise my original stock hdd works fine and the bios boots up no prob. I may have not locked the WD drive after i added some new movies that i recently backed up but i have used the xbox several times with the drive unlocked with no prob, is that the problem? ANY AND ALL INPUT GREATLY APPRECIATED
I have tryed several different hard drives in my box to no avail. the only hard drive that will work is the stock seagate hd. after trying everything i decided to try to power the hard drive with the spare power cord from my comp and just connect the ide cable from the xbox. At this point i do not know if it is good that it worked or bad because it appears that the xbox does not have enough power or the voltage regulators are damaged. ANY KNOWLEDGE PLEASE SHARE. FROM WHAT THE XBOX VOLTAGE OUTPUT SHOULD BE FOR THE HD OR POTENTIAL FIXES

If you just bought it new, visit the manufacturer's website and check the warranty status.
You may be able to have it exchanged for just the cost of shipping the broken hdd to them.

Specifically the Voltage, Wattage(if avail), Frequency(Hz), and Amps. SPECS SHOULD BE LOCATED ON THE ACTUAL WIRE ITSELF. THE END THAT PLUGS INTO XBOX USUALLY. THANX
