nobody has any insight on the situation? I still haven't tested the modchip with the multimeter, which I think is the reason it started fragging in the first place. The multimeter I have is ancient, my friend is gonna steal 1 from his work so I can try it then.
I have no clue about the IDE cables though, will certain types work better? I think its eaither bad IDE cables, my mobo is messed up, or my dvd drive is messed. As I saide before I think there might be 2 things wrong with the box bad modchip and now something with the dvd drive.
My box is an early 1.1 (it still had to be desoldered) with a philips drive.
