Hdd Failure Or Dash Errors?
Posted 11 November 2009 - 08:10 AM
Details : Early version xbox, thompson drive etc. Modchip (unknown) does dual boot by holding power for 3 secs. 120gb seagate hdd.
Was working all good, this is two years ago now, unplugged it one day to take round to mates place, didn't hook it up, hooked the thing back up at home and from then on it hangs at the EVOX/microsoft screen. booting to the ms dash will give an error 21. All of the dash info was in order, and working fine the night before.
Because of the modchip I assume the drive is unlocked. I've tried Xplorer360, winhex and a bunch of others but can't read the drive. I've tried booting with a Slayer CD-R, but no joy. My next step is to try to burn to DVD-R and try that.
My router sees the xbox even though its hung on the dash and appears to give it an ip but I can't connect to it. If I can FTP to it and pull of all the data I'll the throw the box out the window straight after.

I ask cause if it on pins it could have come unseated or the D0 point isnt in contact.
It does sound, from the brief description, like a HDD error.
Open the Xbox and clean as it probably needs it,
check the HDD cable is seated to the board and HDD firmly.
Locking the drive should be irrelivant for modchips.
Check the power chord to the drive, sometimes a firm press on the power adapter helps.
Do you have the HDD set as Cable Select with its jumper ?
