So here is the problem. I have a Duo X2 GS White Cromwell chip installed. I accidently flashed Bank0 with a 256k bios and so I am now trying to re-flash it. I originally flashed through http on Bank0. I am on Bank1 now and I am trying to make a CD to re-flash using Eurasia. However, now matter how I burn my CD, I can't get it to read.
I have a v1.4 xbox. I have tried both the Thomson DVD and the Philips DVD. I am using Memorex CD-RW media. I am using Nero 7 with the following settings:
-ISSO 9660 only
-Max. of 11 = 8 + 3 chars (Level 1)
-Super Link is unchecked
-4x writing speed
I have my bios called BIOS.BIN first in my window, and then a dummy file of a little over 100mb. I have tried putting the dummy file first, renaming the bios file to all lowercase, and switched up the DVD drives.
Nothing seems to work. Anyone know what I am doing wrong?

You need to explain better what you are doing, because your post makes it difficult to track. You say you misflashed Bank 0 but are still using Eurasia to try and flash via bank 1?
Bank 1 contains flashbios. the eurasia disc is not used when you flash from bank 1. Did you defo flash bank 0 or are you getting the banks mixed around.
Flashing from bank 1 requires a simple data disc (CDRW or DVD-R) with a dummy file named aabbcc.dat and your 512k bios named BIOS.BIN. Make sure nero is not adding an extra.bin on the end of the filename.

Chancer - you are right, I mis-typed. The banks are reversed. I misflashed the Flashbios bank with a 256k bios. I am now trying to boot the machine on Bank0, switch to Bank1, then put my new disc in and try to flash. However, it never reads my new disc.
How would I check to see if any extra data is being put on the CD? Should I use CD-RW? When I create the CD, should the dummy file come first, then BIOS.BIN?

If you are flashing from bank 0 you need to have 2 discs. The Eurasia iso on one disc then the bios disc is the second disc. The bios file on the second disc should be bios.bin (lower case).
