Where can I get 616T Samsung model?
You can get one right here --> http://www.superpcma...il.cgi?sku=1205

Can I just replace my Thomson/Philips/Samsung with  a Thomson/Philips/Samsung from another Xbox without a modchip?
Yes you can do it without the modchip. Just unplug the old drive and put in a new one and you are ready to go!!!

Sorry if this sounds like a dumb question, but does this saying mean, that you do not need a modded Xbox to replace a DVD Drive, or that only a Unmodded Xbox you can just unplug and plug in the drive in with out any issues?

The DVD Drive has to be from an xbox or It needs to be a modified computer Drive...

The Xbox has a different power connector...

Computer has (IDE cable and 4 wire power cable)
Xbox has (IDE cable and 10 wire power/control cable)

Also Xbox DVD Drive does not have an eject botton and that is controlled by the Xbox using the Power/Control cable.

If i'm missing something, Please add or ask.

Ok, this is probably a stupid question but I can just use an auto installer, such as the Slayer EvoX 2.6 to install a new hdd?

here's my problem...i don't know where else to go with this

i had to get another xbox and i bought a new chip and i want to take the hdd (120 gb seagate drive) and move it over to the new one...but what happened was weird

when i put the drive in and boot normal i get error 21...i', sure theres something i have to do but i tried it anyway

now when i booted slayers exov bootdisk and apparently the xbox doesn't recognize the HDD...doesn't even show a HDD connected...i then put the old one back in and it read the drive no problem...so i set that up and got a new set of problems

i want to know if there is a way to get the drive from my original modded box to work in the new xbox...is there some way i can make it read the drive?

could this perhaps be a bios issue? (stats on my setup below)

now a second problem is trying to load things in evox on this new xbox...if i try to load XBMC for example it shows the loading screen then goes black and doesn't start...but i can run some games...i can't figure out why the hell it does the black screen...it does this for some backups and so far all original games and dvds...

i'm trying to elaborate as much as possible


here's the setup

XBOX 1.0
SpiderGX with evox M8 bios
samsung dvd drive (works perfect)
retail xbox drive that i don't want

the desired setup would be with the 120 gb drive hopefully not needing to be formatted...as i have tons of stuff on it that i don't have backed up

i hope someone gets back to me on this...

when the HDD was in the box did you lock it???

When you try to move it to the new box it cant unlockit and gives you this error...

If it was unlocked and you never locked it, try to unplug it and plug it in 4 to 5 times... This helps (posibly a bad connection) Double check all connections...



Anyone else has any ideas on this one...
I think everyone forgot about the Xbox and are now Playing with the X360...
Comes out tomorrow here...

if it was locked it will only work in the box it was locked in...

You have to insert it back into the box that it was in, unlock it and then move it to the new box...

Double check all connections, also if you can clean all connections so they have proper contact, otherwise it will act up on you and/or freeze on you...

i have an idea....if theres someway to get my computer to read the 120gb drive...if its even possible i can back it up....then wipe the drive and start over....

is it humanly possible?

i need this drive back but more importantly i need the files on it backed up.....i will not accept this as a lost cause...i just can't....i saved so much stuff on this drive to just give up on it...

the motherboard on the old xbox is killed....it just frags regardless of the chip being there or not...if there is some way to get it to work at least temporarily that should solve alot of problems.....

maybe add something in here about issues with fatx partitions greater than 256gb ( from what i've read ) as far as curruption goes and how to solve that by using xbpartitioner and partitioning with 32k clusters if such exists? Like a when to use and when not to use large f type of thing..
