Anyone have any success/disaster stories about using chimp?
I'm going to try it out soon and I want to make sure I'm not going to ruin my xbox.
Thanks

P.S. Just to clarify, I'm using SID 3.1 and a Mac computer

Ok, here's question number one:

Just to make sure I'm understanding everything properly, this will allow me to replace my retail HDD with a bigger one and I don't need a second, chipped, xbox or a PC?!?

Yeah, I switched from the softmodded retail HD to a 300gig maxtor and just copied the files. Do you have the how to for chimp? You have to be like...perfect when it comes to switching the ide cables or you wont get the drive to detect (the bigger HD), I had to try over and over the second time I did it.

Just finished upgrading my HDD last night with Chimp and now my Xbox is rocking! Chimp was so easy and the hole process was pretty fast (at least, a lot faster then I thought it would be).
Thanks Pirrup!

I'e never heard of software actually damaging a drive. If it was ticking there would have to be physical damage to the drive so the drive arm is hitting the plate or the casing.

It's possible that it was just an unlucky coincidence.

Hi guys, I got 1.6 xbox. I tried using chimp to move my roms and backup xbox games from my old hd to a new one. Everytime I launch the chimp, the screen is blur and moving and then it only shows a blank green on screen. Is there anything that I do wrong here? Is there any other way to move my roms and backup games?

For 1.6 xbox you need to telnet into the xbox. If your not familiar with how to do that let us know and we can qalk you through it.

You would have to connect it to your network, and do this in window:

1. Click Start button
2. Click Run
3. Type "cmd"
4. Type "telnet <network address of xbox"

You should then see a menu with the same options you would see from the screen in a non-1.6 box.
