    does this mean i need to resolder because i cannot find anything else wrong with it


    It tests LPT address:0378 then 0278 then 03BC then pops up that error in the CMD prompt

    1: Make sure your xbox is never turned on, you have to read/write nand with xbox turned off,but power cord plugged in

    2: Make sure you do not plug the LPT port all the way in, mess around with how far you put the cord in.

    3: If doing the first 2 steps does not work, check solder points, then retry.

    Your cable is probably too long. Or you need usb.

    You only need one ground..the diagrams give 2 options to solder to, but there are a lot of places you can use.

    I'm getting the same error and I'm 100% sure everything is fine. I triple checked everything under a microscope and multi metered everything. Theres no shorts or loss solder. I blew the whole thing out with a compressor before I tired. I get an error on every block. I've looked every where and no one knows anything about this. Any help?
