Default Enigmah installed...but still nothing works?

sponsored links

 
a guy i know recently installed an enigmah for me, but when i load up the copied games, it says "your xbox cannot read this disc, make sures its an xbox game, dvd movie, yadda yadda" im sure you've all seen this and if u havnt, it basically just tells you the disc isnt compatible with your xbox. its basically what happens when you put in a burned disc without a chip.

now i know the guy who put it in is a reliable guy, as he did a stealth ps1 chip, a neo2.2 for me way back, and a messiah. i first brought him a bad chip(distributer, also a very reliable guy said about 1-8 chips are bad). there's be an error messege when u load up the xbox with the first enigmah he installed, so he got me a new one free of charge. this one has no errors at all, double and triple checked. it reads originals just fine... but not back ups.

anyone have any idea what's wrong? i intend to call him back tommorrow or the day after..just curious as to see whats wrong with the damn thing. i tried loads of games...last one being f1 2001..burned at mode 1, 2048 with nero onto a nice pioneer dvd-r with a pioneer dvr-a03

any ideas? any help is appreciated

hi m8 a lot of people do have this problem but here a way to make sure
its ok
boot the xbox up no game in the machine
eject the dvd driver.
turn the machine off
now boot up the machine and put in a game u want to try.
and it should work then with no problems at all.
if you are still having the same problem it could be the dvdr u are using
but give that a try.
i had the same problem with some games and did this and it works
100% with any games.

^^^i'll go try that right now

weird thing just happened

in desperation, i found an oooold old copy of shrek from when xbox isos first were bring released, popped it in and it worked. it was a cd-rw dvd rip that i didnt even think i burned properly, and yet, the dvd-r of f1 2001 doesnt work still.

hi m8 just turn the xbox machine of with the drive open
if u turn it off at the switch or the button it
should not go back in
it might be the disk you are using that u can not use with your xbox
only certains one work with the machine.
