Hi!
I have been through the forum a bit but can't find an answer.

I have a version 1.0 Xbox with Executer modchip and Evox installed.
I have replaced HDD with a WD 120 gig.

At some time my xbox decided not to accept discs anymore. I used a standard computer DVD Drive (Pioneer) wich ran externally and went well. And then it stopped working.
I bought a Thomson replacement lens on eBay and chnged it with no results.
I bought a "new" (refurbished) Thomson Drive on eBay, and still nothing works.

I can still upload files form a network connection, but my games are mostly on cds so I can't upload them onto my xbox.

Should I replace the motherboard? Is there anyway to extract the files from my game cds?

I'm very thankful for the help I have received from this community in the past.
Thanks for your help on this case !

Have you tried another ide cable?
As the xbox harddisk and the dvd drive are on the same ide port, it would suprise me that only the dvd drive isn't working anymore.

You can use a kreon flashed drive in a pc to read original game disks.

regards.

I suspected the port but the hdd works fine so I'd have the same reaction as you do.
I'll have to find an ide cable to test meanwhile I'll try reding discs from pc

How exactly do you "kreon flash" ??
I once was good at this stuff but my brain got newbie again

thanks for your help

ok I just figured out I have to flash the firmware with kreon

is that it ?

and will this work with my pioneer drive ? (DVD-116)
