Alright, my friend has 2 Xbox’s that now just sit in his closet, and I am considering buying one off of him to use to mod. The thing is tho, they were both in the closet for a reason.
One of them, has Samsung Disk Drive and Seagate Hard Drive.
This XBox has the old blinking problem. I turn it on, it sits idle for about 2 seconds, then it blinks green once, waits a second, and repeatedly blinks Red to Green with no display or sound on the T.V.
The second of which, has Phillips disk drive and a Western Digital Hard Drive.
Now this XBox will turn on and give me a main menu, but it will not read any disks at all, and it is rather noisey all around. When you press the eject button, it often times takes 2 tries, and when it does open, it appears to struggle, and then it makes a grinding noise and when it retracts, it grinds even more.
Please help me ASAP on a solution to at least have one XBox when I’m done. I was considering swapping the disk drives but I know it can’t be that easy and there would have to be some kind of formating or driver installing. If anyone with an answer could contact me on AIM, Yahoo or MSN, please do so.
