A little about Xbox Original
Date of issue
Xbox - game console, developed and manufactured by Microsoft. For the first time went on sale on November 15, 2001. This is the first independent performance of Microsoft on the game console market after a project to develop a version of the Windows CE operating system for the game prefixer DreamCast. Microsoft Xbox directly competed with Sony PlayStation 2 and Nintendo Gamecube. The heir to Xbox was the xbox 360 prefix and later Xbox One. Initially, the console had the name DirectXbox to emphasize the use of the DirectX API console. When the console was first announced, the name did not like the companies that bought the right to sell. With the help of an Internet survey among users, 20 options for the new name were formed, among whom "Xbox" won.

operating system
An operating system for the Xbox game console is a very much changeable Windows 2000. During adaptation to the game console in Windows 2000, a lot of code has been changed (in the part responsible for working with file systems), so the operating system of this game console cannot be called belonging to the ruler Microsoft Windows. Specialists call it "Xbox OS". [3] However, a member of the Garry Trinder console developer team in its post in the appropriate blog, briefly gave an explanation that the Xbox operating system was developed "from scratch" and only some APIs from Win32 are introduced into it.

Xbox has become a popular gaming prefix containing a hard disk used mainly to save the state of the Games and for files loaded from the Xbox LIVE service. This made unnecessary use of memory cards. Most games also used a temporary caching disk to accelerate the game download. Some games also support such a function as "Custom Soundtracks" - the user can install in the game playing its music files stored on a hard disk, instead of standard, built into the game. Although Xbox is based on a PC architecture and running under the trimmed version of the Windows 2000 core version, the console has a number of differences, including optimization to use for games, as well as restrictions made to ensure that the user cannot use the prefix invertible methods. The same scheme (PC as a basis and trimmed windows) was used in the entertainment system Tandy Vis.

Original Xbox Recording Manual, using ImgBurn.
You have houses chipped or soft mounted Microsoft Xbox Original. You downloaded the image of the game from this subsection. However, do not know how to record the game, what would she play on your favorite console? Do not worry, now I will be painted in detail one of the options for recording the game image. To do this, we use the universal ImgBurn program.

Depending on the size of the gaming image data, you must select the discs of the desired format - CD / DVD / DVD DL +/- R (DVDRW use is extremely not recommended, their use will reduce the drive resource at times), depending on the manufacturer of your console drive manufacturer. Dicks are worth buying high-quality not to plant a laser head. I recommend using Verbatim and TDK brand blanks.

After downloading and installing the ImgBurn program, we launch it.

1. Click the option "Write Image File To Disk" (write file image on a blank).
2. We are looking for and choose a game file-image on your computer.
3. Set the 4x recording speed, then press the option slightly below and to the left, which will lead to the recording start.
We are waiting for the end of the record, after which we happily play with friends.

The adapter is best to check immediately by arrival, and I had a marriage case, I had a good reviews, the time to open the dispute was naturally passed!

A convincing request, if you have any info, which in your opinion will be useful, write in the beginning of the message the mark "Add to the header"!

Hello, please tell me, recorded a disc on a blank, inserted into the box, instead of the game, MEDIA CENTER starts (I tried other images - it works, DVD-R). She lived through Poweriso, all according to the instructions, the boxing itself is chipped + softmode (as far as I remember the seller stated it). I tried via FTP, it gives an error to the folder transmission error there (I tried other games, some are calmly transmitted, some failure on folders (at the same time two games may have the same folder names (Movie for example), but at the same time one game passes<Another failure. What can be wrong ?

Rep: (98)
* Kinozal187. , Something is all in a bunch. Chip is hardmode, program hacking this softmode. Start with the caps. The blanks are definitely not needed, this is a very old and not a favorable topic, it is better to take care of the elderly drive. Find out whether the chip is, and if there is, then:
1 Install the clear and friendly dashboard,
2 Replace hard disk to more capacious
3 Try the stable FTP server / client,
4 Play from a hard disk.
Many moments have already been discussed in this small branch, do not be lazy to read.

Hello everyone, bought the other day Xbox not really familiarized with the topic, now something is completely confused, so I ask for help:

The last owner told little about the prefix, so everything that I know - launches pirate discs, the menu without a disk looks like this: gray background, the inscription EvolutionX is spinning, version 3935 on the right is written down, left below, I understand the boxing model - 1.0, There are only two items in the menu - Launch Disk and Settings. I wanted to try to throw the game to hard, hit a couple of instructions and hung at this moment: I connect to the FTP to the console, then I must edit Evox.ini on the disk with, but I have a disk with empty at all ... Tell me what I have installed And what should be installed to be visible on with these Dashboard files? What other infa is needed? If somewhere in the instructions there are my case to poke your finger, I'll figure it out, I think.

* Wladaf, Too many words! A couple of photos would be much more effective! Now about the case, you need to record the installation disk with the programs, there are links in the header. Then with the help of it to install dashboard, you think, then configure FTP and pour games. Further, the disk change to the more capacious, it is if desired of course! But, initially you need to know what you, chip or softmoda! If the chip (it can be seen by breaking the console, as an option, if you have a suddenly alladin, then from the left end of the console, through the grid, the red light should burn at startup), then everything is simple, the instructions are in the header! If the sofhatomode is more complicated, and most importantly, it is more importantly, the links are also in the header.

* digma19,
Thanks for the answer, but I did not understand, at what "stage" is my Xbox now? If I need to install Dashboard, then what is it on it? I already have EvolutionX and a working FTP, isn't it?

* wladaf If you have a softmode, then carefully with manipulations. Hard disk replace a little more difficult. It was in the branch.
If chip, then you don't have to steam. Writedisc, Put the train more and with blanks put an interesting dashboard. Download games and play.
Look in the settings of Dasha which disc is now, or scattering.

And thank you for the answer, I generally understood what to do, but I am interested in the theoretical side of the question:
What is there on the console? Dashboard is not standard, is it EvolutionX? If so, why there is nothing on the disk with? During softmode, it should be? Does this mean that I have hardmod? If I have EvolutionX, then why should I put another dashboard? In general, I want not just to do according to the instructions, but to understand a little what happens

* wladaf , first: learn chip or softmode. Second: View hard disk. Based on this, we will act further act.

* wladaf You have a ready console! But at the moment, because of the cropped Dasha, it is only suitable for playing from disks. New Dash, full, will give you more opportunities, first, this is a normal FTP.

Rep: (0)
* digma19,
Understood thanks. Although I don't really understand if I have a softmode and there is some kind of Dash, although "cropped", then it must lie somewhere, and the disk with empty, I did not find it on the disk, F is also empty.

* Narcosis-doom
I recorded hexen, launched, in the Dashborad menu, they warned me that they were only suitable for such sofamples, and I don't know what I have in general, so I put a softmode from the disk (maybe this error was?). I rebooted without a disc, I saw a standard dashboard, started from the disk again, put the Unleashx dashboard for his softmode, rebooted - a standard dashboard again. Something went wrong?

By the way, Hexen shows that I have a boxer version 1.6

P.S. And I also want to take the HDD Samsung IDE to 80GB and the Molex brancher, is it physically enough to replace the disk?

Found, thanks!

Rep: (13)
* Wladaf, The question is the first, why did you put the softmoda if he had already stood? The question is the second, did you study the manuals in detail before installing anything? At the moment, if pirate disks read, it's good! If you installed a new Dash, custom, you have to do so that it would be loaded by default, otherwise you will always have a native menu! For IDE discs, splitters are not needed, just put it instead of my native!

Rep: (0)
* digma19,
I wrote why I put the softmoda - because in Hexen there was a warning that the dashboard worked correctly, it is necessary that one of the two softmodes are stood, which are described there, and I did not have any idea or not, so I put it from the disk. And the splitter when software is needed to transfer data to a new disk, isn't it? I do not have a PC from which you can save the second disk
