I know this is probably a last resort but I think I’ve tried everything else.
The main problem is it’s my mate’s younger brother's Xbox.
He knew I did my own ps2 so thought I was qualified to do this Xbox.
Right, I got a cheapmod from a mate for free so took it,
After reading loads of great info on this forum I started and soldered the mod into the v1.1 Xbox which has a Phillips dvd-rom.
Then I brunt Slayers auto install onto a cheap dvd-r and stuck it in.
It worked a treat. I installed the evox dashboard and all the included utils.
I then linked her to my pc and got flashfxp working. I put in the young boys 2 original games to back them up. The 1st fifa2004 I copied direct to my pc. Then for the 2nd I installed dvd2xbox and copied it to the HD 1st, then to the pc. I then used xiso to create the iso's and burned the backups onto Ritek 4x dvd-r's using the G04 dye at 1x.
Then just when I said to myself how easy this all was, I stuck in the backups and the booted ok, but take a long time to load the FMV @ the start of CMR04 will pause a bit and I can hear the laser working hard.
I then come back here and did a bit more searching. I then decided to upgrade the mod bios. So using that great slayer disk I upgraded to the 256k EvoX-m7 Eject Fix bois.
I then tried them again, but they were more or less the same. I would nearly go as far as saying they worked a bit better.
ps. I brunt the iso's using Nero and then tried record now max.
I also tried the cheaper dvd-r's that I used with the slayer auto install but they would not boot at all.
I tried films which were on traxdata but would not even recognize.
And dvd2xbox will not read any of them.
I also made sure that my Xbox time and date was right.
Sorry for the long winded question but its doing my head in and more so cause the mate's wee brother is doing it in too. =-)
So do I just need to tweak the dvd-rom pot?
I see the following link is for Thompson drives but will it be much different for the Phillips drive?

Any advice would be very much appreciated. :splease
