I have had another xbox go down with disc reading problems and have ordered a replacement.
I used the slax method to get the drive into mode B, however I recieve a not responding error when 'spinning up disc...'. I assume this is because I'm having reading errors anyway?
Either way, the drive is in mode B as the ejecting takes 2 presses, etc and the drive shows up in Windows.
To replace the drive, I obviously need the key from it, so using C4EVA iExtreme v1.2 Stealth I ran flashix.bat and it only gets as far as dumping 2 files, key.bin (16 bytes) and was.bin (256kb) before saying the following...
The system cannot excecute the specified program.
ERROR: Hitachi drive build was NOT detected!
Helpfully it then lists 4 possible problems, 3 of which I have eliminated. One of them is "Your x360 drive is not a working version", I hope this has nothing to do with my disc reading errors?
Basically, I'm not too bothered about reflashing the drive with iExtreme, i just want to know if the key.bin (16 bytes) and was.bin (256k) I have are enough to flash my new replacement drive?
Also, are there programs you can use to validate these files?
