Re: ATTENTION please stop with the XBOXHDM, it's pathetic

Please share then. Post something useful that may help other Xbox users.

Its one of the main reasons why people come to forums like this.

Re: xboxhdm23usb

I'm probably wasting my time asking but Is there any chance that you can share the method you finally used to resolve your problem?

Re: Album Track Order By Number Not Alphabetically

I didn't get answer to this at the time and I'd actually forgotten I'd asked this question here. But recently I've ripped a few more new CD albums to XBMC and again its irked me that there isn't an option to list the tracks in their original number order. Quite frankly the prospect of having to chan...

The guy has a bee in his bonnet and been banned from at least one other Xbox forum in the last couple of weeks for similar posts. I thought he'd calmed down so I was happy to make allowances and tried to be helpful but that last post was strike three for me. I just don't get posts like that because ...

Re: I need help (a soft modded 2TB HDD)

He has the eeprom already but I'm not sure what can be done with it just on PC when the Xbox is dead and the HDD locked meaning it cannot be hot-swapped. Windows won't recognise/give you access to the locked HDD so even if you use XBHDM USB you can't unlock it. At least that is what I believe is the...

Re: Softmod HELL Error code 6

As indicated I'm not a HeXEn expert or at least not as knowledgeable about it as some of the other guys here. What I'm not getting is how you ran HeXEn (from disc?) to build the new HDD if the HDD installed "had packed up". Some sort of hot swap technique? I think you need to described exa...

Re: Softmod HELL Error code 6

No, HeXEn or any other burned disc won't run on a a retail state HDD even if locked. You can not just put another new HDD in a softmodded Xbox and expect it to work. The softmod files are on the HDD and without them you have no softmod. Even if you copy them to the new HDD its still unlocked and so ...

Re: Replace DVD drive softmodded xbox

You can replace the Xbox DVD drive with a bit of physical/electrical modding but you'll lose all Xbox game playing capabilities. There is/was at least one old IDE DVD drive that, with updated firmware, could replace an original drive but you'll be lucky to find that now. The increasingly common advi...

Re: Modchip over softmod

Yes but I hope you understand that to fit a chip to the v1.6 you need to rebuild the LPC (Low Pin Count). Its a typically unhelpful name for the 16 hole connection mount on the MB which allows additional devices ie. a chip in this case to be attached, usually with a pin-header. With the v1.6 MB MS r...

Re: How to stop MS Dashboard from auto launching game in DVD Drive

AFAIK there is nothing you can do about that MS dash behaviour at least not with a softmod. I'm not sure about a TSOP though as you're replacing the MS Retail dash BIOS with a custom BIOS and it may be possible to edit the autoplay function on/off. It may be possible with a chip too. I'm also wonder...

Re: Only have f drive

Definitely yes. The FATX formatting only supports up to 1024GB using 64K clusters. If you don't reformat for equal F & G partitions of that maximum size the moment the content on your single F drive exceed that it will corrupt. Its practically guaranteed. Use XBPartioner v1.3 or Chimp to reforma...

Re: Multiple Sources for Games

It should depend only on what you've called the path in XBMC to each Games folder wherever it is. I'm guessing at some point you created two different sources so they show up as Games (the original source) and Games(1) when you created the second path as a different source. What you should have done...

Re: I need help with understanding what have been done with my OG XBOX

Too many questions to answer at one time:- 1). If XBMC dash says it is a v1.6 it is but clock cap replacement is recommended if the date is not being retained for a reasonable amount of time, say 12 hours unplugged. Of course if there is evidence of leakage or bulging then replace it and any other d...

Re: Xbox 2tb soft mod worked great - now boots to a black screen/orange Led (reads discs)

It may be possible to save some stuff from F but its safest just to reformat both the extended partitions correctly and start from scratch IMHO.

What size HDD are you using and how is it partitioned?

Were your extended drives ie. F & G properly formatted?

Re: Xbox 2tb soft mod worked great - now boots to a black screen/orange Led (reads discs)

Yes, that is always the thing to ask with 2TB HDD. It must be split equally between F and G so they're both <1TB and formatted to use the correct cluster size for up to 1TB partitions ie. 64K. If you exceeded the maximum HDD content for the cluster size being used by default 16K (up to 256GiB) then ...

Re: Burning HDD ready games to disc

There are a few games like that but they may still work with dual layer discs if your burner supports them and, more likely a cause of problems, your Xbox DVD drive 'likes' the particular type being used. For some reason, perhaps just the limited number of games this affects, there seems to have bee...

Try with a standard ethernet/CAT5 type cable rather than a cross-over.

Re: Burning HDD ready games to disc

I'd first recommend you install a larger HDD. It is almost pointless modding your Xbox, which I hope you understand is a prerequisite for playing downloaded games, and keeping the original 8GB HDD. However with 'HDD ready' downloads you want to burn to disc you need to unzip them first. Make sure th...
