I have another problem! This time it is with my friends xbox. He was running an old version of XBMC and I wanted to transfer some files over to his computer using the autodetect feature. However because I had a newer version of XBMC it couldn't see any of my files.
So I decided to upgrade his XBMC, so I used the in-game reset to reset it to the unleashx dash. But when it booted up again it went into a black screen. I switched it on and off and once the xbox logo disappears it just goes into a black screen.
I thought that this would be no problem and I could just run splinter cell and reinstall the softmod but it does the same thing. The only help I can give here is that the orange light is on which means (I think) that the softmod is running, I had thought that splinter cell would override the softmod dash and go straight into the game (as it usually does) but this time it seems to be stuck on the softmod.
I have tried searching for the IP address of the xbox (using a router and looking for detected devices from 192.168.0.x - 192.168.2.x but no joy).
So tldr: Xbox black screens after xbox logo, cannot/wont read discs, cannot ftp... what I do now?
I thought about switching DVD drives with my other xbox or should I think about taking out the hard drive and doing some stuff there, where should I go from here?
Replies appreciated. Thanks!
