    I need some help/advice, i recently got a flashed xbox from XPGHAX and im having numerous troubles with it

    • Cant run games for longer that 5 minutes without recieving "Disk is unreadable" error unless i install the game
    • When trying to install/play some games i get an error saying the disk is too scratched even when the disk is mint not a mark on it, and if the game wont install i cant play it.
    • I get the "Disk is unreadable" error when its reading the game i put in the drive like 90% of the time
    Any ideas on what i can do to sort or even help this issue. thanks.

    Well the flash is not bad if it IS reading games. It sounds like the disc drive needs a pot tweak. Very common for modified drives. Heck even for stock drives.

    If a pot tweak fails, probably need a new laser.

    It's where you slowly increase/decrease the laser voltage by rotating the laser's knob (Ha ha, yeah *insert mega floppy dangler joke here*) in order to
    fix your dvd drive's reading or even for the sake of better reading times. A video by Alex below shows exactly how to perform this procedure.

    It's actually quite simple, just a case of screwing it into place :p

    I would recommend giving a pot tweak a try first.

    Then I suggest taking it up with HAX or you can send it to me (Based in Scotland) and I can fix it up for you.

    There are lots of tutorials too on youtube you can look at for taking the console apart and that way you can do it yourself.
