    If you own a xbox check the bottom for the manufacture date. If it is before October 23, 2003, you need a new cord. Apparently extended play time is causing them to melt sometimes burning people, carpet, and such. Microsoft will send you a new one at no cost. See www.xbox.com on the right hand side for details and to order a new cord. Mine was included in this recall....

    Hey!! I remember that happening to my Atari a bunch of years back! My brothers burnt out the colour chord, so everything was black and white from then on. LOL. It does take rather "extensive" use though... Some people just never learn.

    They say if you play a Microsoft CD backwards, you hear satanic messages. Thats nothing, cause if you play it forwards, it installs Windows.

    I don't have an XBox.
    Update: Parents convinced to allow me to keep greenhouse heated over winter. Most species will not be lost. Too lazy to update growlist.

    Got my cord today... Kinda strange. Has some built in cut off... Where if it "notices" a strange (too much?) draw it will trip and remove power so you got to reset it... Seams to me they are using this to fix a problem with the Xbox instead of recalling the xboxes. It had better not turn off when i'm in the middle of something......

    Yes, for some the boxes crash a ton and they can't get far into games [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_h_32.gif[/img]

    Sundoode, not the game crashing.... The xbox pulling to much power so the new cord cuts off the power...
    NepG, I did. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img] I recently changed the RCA plugs to a High Def adapter too... So I kept that also. So now I have the basic adapter and a power cord to take the xbox to friends houses easier. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img] but with it hooked up to high def video and optical 5.1 sound here... I'm NOT too sure I'd wanna take it somewhere else to play. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/confused.gif[/img] hehe
