    For starters, when you turn it on, the X Box logo and sound no longer appear on the TV. I got all the covers off, and cycled it, no laser(?) light appearing to read the disc. It is getting power, or the tray would not open, and the little green light ring would not light up. I think the dard drive itsself crashed. I am NOT going to buy a 360. Too much cash that could go in the K5 or the Bird. Any ideas????

    yes, after it has been modded.

    then you can save games to the hard drive and play them from memory.
