Hi everyone,

I have on original xbox v1.6 but the hard drive is broken , the program HDDRegenerator says the complete disk has bad sectors.

I have an new harddisk, but how can I read the eeprom without eeprom reader.
I have no materials for it, and I have no money for it.

I still go to school.

how can I unlock the broken harddisk to get the hdd info from liveinfo Beta 3 by joshihiro.

Gr Jeannot

PS: sorry if the english is bad/not good. I'm from the Netherlands

Does anyone know where you can buy a eeprom reader for the original xbox (not the 360)

I live in The Netherlands.
So if anyone knows where to buy one, tell me Please.

I have never heard of an Eeprom Reader. Can you sent your Xbox for repair. Is there an shop that repairs game console near your house?

Ok thanks for the information. I just search the net for eeprom reader and dozen of xbox links came up. Have you seen this link

The instructions seems very complex unless you know how to do it i won't recommend you as it may worsen the situation. All the best:)
