    Default Xbox DVD Rom question

    Does anyone know if there is anyway to improve the reading of the xbox discs. Eventhough i use dvdr's, it still seems very poor at reading discs.

    I dont really want to change the drive so any other alternatives??

    box Laser Fix While modding a friends Xbox I noticed he had alot easier time reading different media than my machine. His machine was a resold refurbished machine from Microsoft so I wondered what M$ may have changed. When I opened it up I noticed a little modding of their own. Following what they did I managed to get my XBox to read media better than ever! The picture can be found here. Notice they removed a surface mount resister where the wire is and the resister used is a 10k resister. Also, AFTER you install the resister, break out your multimeter and set the pot on the laser to 1650. Worked for me, but I don't take responcibility for any damages cause by this news. More importantly, if your XBox can read cheap DVD-R and CD-RW just fine LEAVE IT ALONE

    tbh I would just sod the dvd drive altogether, fit an xecuter or evox homebrew and use a bigger hard disk.

    Im having the same trouble, especially with audio skipping, you can change the drive (i read some guy put a toshiba drive in it) however I am sure they said that it diddnt read originals after changing the drive

    Secondly theres the original upgrade of the ide cable that improves the transfer rate, that might help (sos if im talking crap just repeating what i read

    no it wont read originals if you change to a non xbox dvdrom drive. i dont think changing the cables will stop the audio skipping - thats if you mean playing audio cdrw's.

    if you mean in fmv in games then if youve a pal xbox try it in pal60 mode.
