hello,
I'm sure this is int he wrong section but i could not find where else it would go. here is what happened. My sons friend brought his broken xbox over after some playing around figured out the dvd drive was dead. so i thought i have an old pc dvd burner i wonder if it would work in my moded xbox. went and got it plugged it in my box and i go a good sing as the xbox booted from the disc i inserted i put the disc in before xbmc was up and it went right in.

so i took my xbox dvd drive and put it in his box and it worked so he was happy and i was happy. now the problem (wich most of you might already know) is that if i put a disc in the xbox after xbmc is loaded it will not play or do anything with it. if the game disc in is while the xbox is starting then it will start perfectly. can i do anything to make xbmc load discs from this dvd drive? it is a sony dvd burner. not sure the exact model right off but i can find out.

hope that makes sense to everyone any help would be appreciated.

There is only certain computer drives that can read xbox discs because the xbox games are in their own special format. The easiest fix would be to just buy a new xbox DVD drive off ebay and swap it in.

well you see i have no more original xbox games..traded them in for ps3 games so i'm not concerned about reading original game discs only copies. the problem here is that once XBMC is booted i cann't access any discs i put in. if i put the game disc in then reboot the xbox the game will start instead of xbmc.

Makes it sound like you play copy's of games you don't own and that is piracy bro. Shocked

But since the HQ has so much appreciation for its VIP's and there support i would bet you meant you ether don't play xbox games any more or that you just play copy's of the few games you got left. Wink

Enjoy the site and congrats on the disk drive work around man. Very Happy
