Okay, after check all the forums and seamonkey's great website, I flashed my Matrix mod chip with evox d6.ejectfix, inserted it into my version 1.0? x-box (based on the numbers on the xbe info screen also manufacturered sept 11, 2002 - could be a problem ), made the boot disk on a cd-r, backed up c and e drives from the x-box to my computer, installed evolution beta ver. 1.8.3285 on the xbe c drive,copy nfs 2 to my desktop and back to my xbe, it worked! Burned a nfs 2 disk onto DVD+RW, it worked! Burned the same game to DVD+R (verbatum), didn't work! Checked a DVD+R movie that I know worked on an unmodded xbe and it didn't work. Also I cannot seem to run any other games off of the hard drive or off of DVD+RW or +R, I've tried Godzilla, Panzor Dragoon and Kung Fu Chaos (all newer games? hmmmm....)Evolution recognizes them as games and starts to load and then resets. I turn off the rest in game feature but still no start just a slow flicker between the evolution logo and the menu screen. I thought maybe these titles all included downloadable content so I disconnected network connections, still no luck. Tried running the earliest version of evolution, same problem. Still oddly enough, I can't even run an off the shelf DVD in the drive but I can run all my existing games. Help, Help, Help. What am I going to tell my wife when she wants to watch a movie, I've got too much invested to let it sit like this . . .
