Ok I got my benq replacement I flashed it with ixtreme 1.61 and it reads and plays all my backups great no problems at all...

I finally flashed my other xbox with a sammy in it with ixtreme 1.61 it will hit and miss playing the backups. sometimes it will play them sometimes it wont...It's a new unit will play originals ok.....

could it be I need to reflash it again ?

I know the advice is not to flash for fear of banning but I don't play live and have no intention of doing so....I just play for my own pleasure and entertainment...


thanks for any ideas....

The flash is alright... it could be a multitude of things. 1 the samsung is pickier on dvd quality than your benq. 2 your laser is dirty/ dying. 3 your disc tray or laser is of track

Samsung's are the pickiest drives from what my experience is, followed by hitachi's (my hitachi never got a bad disk read, but i've heard people with picky drives), and then benq's (I've never gotten a bad disk read with a benq).

Your best bet is to get Verbatim disks from like newegg. Also I recommend you do not play on xbox live at the current time since you will be banned for having a flashed 360.

Haxalot88 thanks for the advice!!!

I don't play online (as of yet...lol) I'mjust now getting back intogaming since the days of PS1 and Genesis...lol
I purchased a new PS3 so if I do decide to play online I can use that...

I'm having fun discovering all these neat games....The graphics just blows me away....

I've learned a lot in the past week or so reading this site, There is a lot of people willing to help, and it's very informative....

thanks
