    xbox chip

    I went to the computer fair yesterday and took my xbox along so I could get it chiped. I could have done it myself, but for the price they were charging it really wasnt worth the hastle.

    I got a 120 gig hard drive (ibm deskstar) for £52 to replace the ickle 10 gig the xbox comes with and paid someone £30 to install a chip, the hard drive and program it.

    Since then Ive "backed up" about 40 games. You just insert the disc and copy it to the hard drive! Best £83 Ive ever spent You can even FTP the xbox to your pc and upload games and software. Ive just been playing with a snes emulator, mario cart. Lol.

    It does a couple of other things too, plays DivX movies, mp3's, vcds, photo albums....pretty cool really.

    So if your thinking of having it done. I totaly recomend it.

    I've thought about it, but don't play enough games to make it worth the money.

    I just have mine chipped, my mate has the hard drive but he's unable to backup some of the newer games. Anyone know where to get some backups from as my supplier had a call from the old bill.

    The computer fair is held at "bowlers" every saturday in trafford park. Its part of the northern computer markets ring.

    http://www.computermarkets.co.uk/

    As for which chip did I buy..Well I dident. The original bios was writtten over instead of adding a second bios (a chip). When choosing a chip, you should ask more about the code thats written on it. As I said, the chip is just a second bios than holds your new hacked program code. Theres currently two leading versions of code, I belive mines called "M7" and theres another I think called executor, but I am really not sure. Basicaly the one I got was supposed to be more compatable with all the recent games, and so far Ive had no problem at all backing them up onto the new 120gig drive.
