I said to download only games you want to play. what's the likelihood you'll be playing 100+ games at the same time? I highly doubt that. I mean why do you have an rgh if you're just going to play discs? makes no sense.
I have an RGH to have options, especially playing XBLA material. Sorry I want a working DVD drive in my xbox. Why judge me for doing what I want to do and trying to fix my drive? THAT makes no sense!

We're trying our very best to help you but you're not making it easy.
You're so hell bent on getting that drive to work that you're blinded by the better alternatives.
Yes you have hundreds of games on disc, yes ripping that isn't really an option.
Did you ever think about disc rot? that will set in on recordable DVDs and when that happens, your discs will be toast and you've got no way to recover then other then to redownload and start from scratch.
godreborn and I have suggested everything we could suggest, no we're not judging you, we're simply giving you options of what you could do with your RGH.
Just bin the drive, dump a 2TB drive in there and get over it.
But hey, don't listen to me or godreborn or others, enjoy wasting your time and money which you could've used and spend on playing games on the thing instead :')

You want a real piece of advice? be open minded about alternatives suggestions.
Or you know, give up and bring the thing to a specialist, we couldn't care less.

You're not trying to help solve my issue, you're trying to circumvent the issue. For what feels like the millionth time, I want my DVD drive to function as it did before some mystical power broke it. I 100% understand there are alternatives that you all feel are superior. I just want a drive that reads my discs. I know it can be done, which is why I asked specifically 2 pages ago.

op, we're not trying to force you to do something. we're trying to give you some friendly advice. I'd strongly advise against doing something when you don't know what you're doing. you could make it to where no games play or mess the console up in some way. just play games from the hard drive. there's an uploader that has most of the popular titles for the system, so you can download an iso and use exiso or download a jtag rip of the games. I had over 500 360 games before the external hdd died somehow, and I wasn't about to try downloading all of them again. I just put games I might play on the system. when I was using discs, I never dumped them but maybe a couple. way too time-consuming.

btw, the fastest and easiest way imo is to use the default dash to make an nxe build of the games, then use nxe2god to make them god containers. you can swap discs by having the forwarders outside of the normal folder like this:

it will probably do that by default, but you also have to enable disc swapping in dashlaunch. FSD/Aurora may only be able to do jtag rips. I'm using FSD 2.0, and I've never been able to figure out how to swap god containers without using dashlaunch. it will swap jtag rips though, and they can be formatted the same way as the dashlaunch version (i.e. Disc 1, Disc 2, etc.).

the function is called "autoswap" in dashlaunch. enable it to true in the launch.ini. false is default, but I have no idea how to swap god containers with FSD (don't know if Aurora does it like dashlaunch). it doesn't work the way I mentioned, only if you enable this function and have it set up the way I do will god containers disc swap:

Just to close this out for my own reference since nobody else cares, I swapped the PCBs from the broken drive to the new drive. Then I updated the flash on the drive with my x360usb Pro 2 using jungleflasher. Finally I updated my RGH dashboard to the latest with XeBuild GUI and everything's working as it should. I can finally play my disc based games.

I thought you ignored me? I'm done trying to justify my original question to you, you clearly either can't read or don't care enough to understand what I'm asking. How many times do I have to say I'm looking to fix my drive? You keep pushing your agenda. Stop it. I solved my issue, hopefully it helps someone else in the future.

    that is a question i've been pondering for some time -- what is the normal running distance for a healthy human? there doesn't seem to be any objective answer. i would imagine a typical unfit person would only be able to go 50 meters or so before having to stop and catch their breath.

  • NoobletCheese @ NoobletCheese:
    during my regular 30 minute walks i'll jog as far as i can about 3 times before running out of breath. and after a couple of months im only up to around 200m, which is quite pathetic. i dont know what im supposed to do to improve this.

    on the other hand, muscular athletes can jog for ages, but i think its their muscle to weight ratio is much higher

    In my gym
    classes in high school, we had to run 1.6kms, or 1 mile. In the first few classes we'd have physical conditioning to reach that level. I was morbidly obese and took longer than most of my classmates
