tried playing halo last night via system link, 2 xboxes, 1 modded 1 not modded. the modded box was playing a backup of halo from the hdd, the other box was playing from dvd drive. we had 7 guys playing and the game kept freezing. we then tried using an original disc in both xboxs and the same thing happened. when we swapped out the modded box for a non modded box everything ran smoothly.
Anybody have any ideas why the game frooze while the modded box was in use? it's a v1 box with a matrix modchip and tommy disc drive, an 80g 7200rpm maxtor hdd unlocked in an external drive caddy so that i can easily swap my hdds.
the modded box plays single player and split screen halo fine, it just freezes using system link.
