Connect a PC DVD-drive to XBOX
It's possible to connect a normal PC DVD-drive
to your X Box. This is very usefull if your XBOX
has a bad or damaged laser. A PC computer DVD-drive
will not only give better results for DVD-r/rw
and more importantly for copied CD-r/rw. PC DVD
drive on XBOX will play pretty much all brands
and load times will be shorter then when using
the official Xbox DVD-drive.
What you need is:
- A pc DVD-drive
- A normal PC powersplitter (4 Pin Power Connector
for 5.25 Drive , like used in normal PCs)
- An original xbox game (depends on dvddrive)
- A modded xbox console (you will need a mod-chip)
- Put your PC DVD-drive in slave-mode.
- Open the top of your xbox.
- Leave the Xbox DVD-drive in its slot.
(you can NOT just replace the drive , in order to make this work you will
need both drives).
- Put the PC DVD-drive on top of the Xbox DVD-drive.
- Disconnect the IDE cable on the Xbox DVD-drive
and connect it to the PC DVD-drive.
- Leave the 8wire yellow cable on the Xbox DVD-drive.
- Disconnect the Xbox HDD Powercable and connect
the power-splitter on it. Now connect one end
of the splitter back to the Xbox HDD and the
other end to the PC DVD-drive.
Your XBOX is now ready to read CD-RW/R and DVD-R/RW
from the PC DVD-drive.
Now How do you boot games with this configuration:
The are 2 method to boot games with a pc-dvddrive. I can't say which one will
work with your drive , so just try them both.
BOOT METHOD 1
Insert nothing in the xbox-drive.
Open the PC drive and insert disc.
Close the PC drive.
Reset Xbox. (reset button or "reboot xbox" in EvoX).
Game should launch , if not , try METHOD2.
BOOT METHOD 2
Eject the xbox drive (<-- Xbox drive!!)
Insert the CD-r/rw or DVD-r/rw disc in the PC drive (<-- PC drive !!)
Close the xbox drive with an original xbox game inside. (<-- Xbox drive!!)
For DVD movies you can do exactly the same.
1/ You can NOT play original discs this way , you will have to reconnect the
IDE-cable to the Xbox DVD-drive if you want to play an original games.
2/ You will have to keep your xbox open. Make sure you protect it from dust.
3/ It's unsure if this tricks works with ALL PC DVD-drives. It has been successfully
tested with LG8160B , Pioneer DVD- 105SZ , PIONEER DVD-106S , lite on 16x & SD-M1612
