Looking to sell my xbox, which has a problem where it will not recognise games, but appears to play CDs ok. The fan is a little loud, but I am expecting a replacement in the post shortly, and will be included.

It has been opened before (a couple of times), and has already had a replacement dvd drive. BUT, this drive was bought from ebay, and could be the reason I am having the problem!

It will come in the box, with power and component cables, but no controller or memory. This is sold as faulty!! Yes, it has been opened, but never modified to my knowledge!

So you thought it was a simple swap of drives.
i thought so, and think it probably still is, but I really am fed up with it, and this is a great excuse to get a ps3
you do realise the reason its not working is because you didnt flash the encryption key off the old drive onto the new one when you replaced it. it cant play games unless you do that... pm me if you want help. its quite complicated though
have u ever tryed to flash the original drive? has it had the x-clamps replaced? if no to both n u include the original drive also ill take it off you if ur not wanting to try to fix it,,,, as long as ur sure u have not wiped the dvd key of its original drive with a bad flash
For £25 it's a steal nevertheless to whoever buys it...

Considering the owner provides the original DVD drive aswell!

Could be a good investment, I would but... cba with hassle lol
have expired this until I can confirm that I can include the original drive, as it looks like it would be quite important!! Original drive never flashed, just replaced. As for x-clamps, I couldnt say for sure, as it hasnt been mine its entire life! As far as I know, it doesnt.
Ok, will come with 2 dvd drives, the original, which doesnt read discs, and a replacement which I havent extensively tested (see above). I believe it just needs a new drive to be fully functioning. Will be boxed, with a component cable and power lead only, as well as a replacement fan due to the one in there being a bit noisy! THis has been opened a few times, but I do not know if it has been fixed before, sorry. Also, I have noticed that the flap covering the USB ports is missing.

£25 inc
Just noticed this and want to clarify before I take it off you (yes, will take at asking price)
1) Original drive supplied which was in the XBOX when bought, did read games, but then stopped reading. This drive was never flashed or tampered with.
2) Replacement drive which was bought from eBay and doesn't read disks because you haven't spoofed the drive key?
3) Noisy fan and replacement fan included
4) Case is a bit damaged but not majorly so.
5) Buyer gets the console, power brick/cable, component cable

If it's yes to all of the above then I'd be happy to take for £25 delivered. Thanks.
Yes to the above. Can include a 3rd party VGA cable for no extra cost if you want, and can add a 20gb hard drive for an extra £10 and black wireless controller for an extra £12
Excellent, I'll take it then.
Don't need the cable but will take the controller if it's decent condition.

Take to PM?
Payment made and awaiting delivery :)
Bargain if you can acquire the original key from the original DVD, if not... I guess It'll make a good DVD player.
