E64 weird error

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hi out on a bit of a limb here, don't know if anyone will have seen it but in my years of fixing xboxs i've never had an E64 error, appears to be something to do with the DVD drive, i've tried new SATA cables and power cables just incase, but im assuming the DVD drive is bricked, just wondering if anyone has come across this and worked out a fix, unlikely but worth an attempt!
Reason I ask is I have a pile of xboxs I finished fixing and was lending them to people who have had the misfortune to get a RRODing xbox or something similar, the rest of this batch worked fine but this one xbox after fixing RROD came out with an E64 error relating to DVD drive.
I also attempted to install a XCM dual fan unit to keep the console cooler, it appeared to be much hotter than the rest, this unit draws power from the DVD drive 12V power cable, is it possible this could brick the drive?

Either the DVD drive is bricked or it has the wrong firmware.

I have had my 360 fans running on the dvd power for over a year--- no problems

Its a first gen xbox, but with the heatsink microsoft fitted to try to stop RROD (essentially Ver1.1) the drive is a hitachi.
nsciucco yes I didn't think it'd be the fans, after all what could it do, could it be possible that it is a bad batch of a one though and it maybe caused a surge or something bricking the drive?


Edit : I forgot to add its a 2006 model I think, or at least thats what the x-clamps are stamped with, its as original as it gets, just the pro version (no internal memory like arcade)
