hello all, i guess i'll have to be a noob today anyways...my xbox is dead now, it won't boot up. it gets the "your xbox needs service" warning and that's it.
it clicks loudly and at frist i thought the dvd drive was messed up, but no. i opened the xbox up, ran it open, and heard the sounds comming from the harddisk.
since there's only afew moving parts in the harddisk i knew it was the little arm in there (i even opened it up to make shure, and yes, the arm is moving back and forth).
well i want to know if i can do one of the below:
-can i repair that arm somehow so the harddrive works right again?
-can i buy a new harddrive and put the platters from the xbox drive into the new HD chassie(sp?)?
-or do i have no option but to buy some sort of mod chip and mod it to take a new harddrive?
thanks in advance, i want to play my xbox again...it's been weeks since it would actually boot at all:(
