Question about Microsoft Xbox Console
My xbox will play music cd's but it won't play any games, "cannot read disk", dirty or damaged, sometimes, it will play for an hour then stop, you can hear the eye going across the game but it just doesn't seem to click in the right spot to play. Please help,
This comming from a guy that has softed 3 of his 4 xboxs...dont unless you absolutely have to. i did mine right and they worked prefectly well until microsoft desided to kick all who softmod off live. when they did so i kept getting an annoying black and green screen that prevents use of the xbox. the problem can be fixed by going full hard mod on the box. tis a litte more expensive, but worth it becuase i found that hard mod chips are just way more fun :)

Softmoding is not fool proof. I know people who have soft modded their xbox to play back up games as well as save games to the hard drive. Some times it is worse. Do this with caution! Try www.xbox-scene.com for more help & info

Very common. there's even a law suit against MS regarding this problem, and a few dedicated websites. The problem is with the DVD drive. MS uses a few different manufacturers for the optical drive, and while the Samsung one for an exmaple is considered safe, some of the rest are buggy as hell. If you call MS they will offer to fix it for 50 - 100 $, which is offcourse BS, since it's a clear defect on their part. A way around it, is to softmod your XBOX to be able to play the games from the hard drive. This is likely to prevent you from playing live though. Here are a couple pf dedicated sites: http://www.sentientcreations.com/xbox-issues/ http://www.joystiq.com/2004/10/28/gamer-suing-microsoft-for-bad-xbox-drives/ Good luck
