First off, my xbox specs (for those who don't know):
Xecuter 3CE Modchip (latest Xecuter bios)
Xecuter control panel
WD 500GB PATA HD (WD5000AAKB) [Current HD being used]
Maxtor DiamondMax10 250GB PATA133 HD (6L250R0) [Previous HD used]
Samsung DVD drive (SDG-605)
XBMC (semi-latest version, not able to load bios to FTP/update, useless at this point with this issue)
This is a recap, fresh, new post on the issues I have been having with my xbox for quite awhile now. The issues I am having (electrical gremlins or something) is the treacherous Error Code 07 (Solid red hard drive light). Here is a list on when the error appears:
Power on-->Flubber animation-->stops here-->doesn't show Xecuter logo-->after a few seconds, shows error
Power on-->Flubber animation-->Shows Xecuter logo-->stops here-->after a few seconds, shows error
Holding white button for bios menu-->first two instances stated above, bios doesn't load (sometimes it does)
Power on-->Flubber animation-->Shows Xecuter logo-->XBMC loads-->random lock-up (during session with XBMC and during game play)
Rarely can I ever get the xbox to boot up right, less run fine.
Something I would like to add, xboxmods2977 had stated during in someone else's post:
"Just a little insight. I had the same problem with a regular PATA HD and it was because my resistance (POT) was not set correctly on the positive side of my HD light. It could also be a power supply issue. I hope this helps anyone. By the way, I would shoot for the cable select setting."
I have contacted him on that, but I haven't got a reply yet. Does anyone know the details on what he is talking about, other the the power supply issue? Please explain it
(somewhat in Dummy terms
). I am hoping it is not the power supply. SICKdimension won't have his Xbox ATX Converter for awhile.
Things I have tried:
1. Different IDE Cables
2. Different DVD drives
2. Same issue with both hard drives
3. 500GB HD has been formatted/partitioned using 32kb clusters
