Flashed Benq Ix1.6 Not Playing Backups
Posted 24 April 2011 - 01:10 PM
firstly thanks for all of the great write ups here for the 360, i had not messed around with it until recently (keeping my modded xbox1 alive) and the quality of write ups is great.
I have a RROD repaired Xbox 360 running dashboard 2.0.12611.0 with a BenQ drive that I have flashed with Dosflasher v0.8 to IX1.6 firmware but have not been able to play any backups.
Not that i think it matters but the backups have been burnt from linux onto both verbatium and Aeon DL discs (as some of the posts here seemed to hint these were the best media). When i place them into the 360 i just get the play DVD place this in an xbox360 console to play warning. One time it almost looked like it started to play the game (with the tell tale black screen fade in) but then ended up at the playDVD screen again.
I have searched around but cannot see anything about dashboard version stopping me from using backups. I was wondering if flashing using jungleflash might help? I liked dosflasher as i dont have windows installed on any of my machines (just use linux) so the usb boot meant i didnt have to mess with my normal OS.
I know you get lots of posts similar to this, but i have followed the guides and am slightly stuck with how to move forwards.

So i guess i have 2 problems as i see it from here - no or non matching dvd drive key -
nvidia sata windows pc that wont see the drive in windows and modcontrol dos usb flash drive that doesnt seem to give me options to create - dump - restore a dvd drive key.
Thanks for the help - patience with me. How do i go forward?
EDIT: Im thinking of grabbing a spare HDD and installing windows on the machine that i got the DOS usb disk working on - hopefully that will give me access to jungleflash - can i fix this thing from that point? Thanks

So plot thickens, retail games do the same! Not good!
Your drive key does not match. Did the console work before you messed with it? If so you had better hope you have a backup of your original firmware or drive key.

Is there anyway i can get it back working (no backup taken - stupidly)? Im not worried about XBOX live as i have another console upstairs for that, I would just like to get this one working on the bottom floor of my house.
Thanks for any help you can give - lesson learned with backup and not just using jungleflash i guess.
