I received my xDrive with the xFan add-on today.
I used the PDF linked in one of the stickies here in the forum to install everything (xDrive_Plus_install.pdf).

When i power on my xbox, the center led flashes immediately, like the drive is about to eject. To make it stop i have to eject the drive (in the xdrive) and close the drive again. I can use the drive as usual after doing so.

I have checked and rechecked my installation several times. I cant find anything wrong the wires. I have connected the drive directly to the xbox just to get the drive out of the equation and it works as it should.

Any suggestions?

English is not my native language. Just ask if anything is unclear.

So.. seems to be something wrong with the unit then... i will try to get a replacement from the store... I'm quite disappointed. Not what i was expecting from a TX-product. Seems like a few other is having problems with xDrive too.. unanswered questions in this part of the forum.

Well, the replacement works. :)

I use the drive with external power brick.

Might I ask where you are getting your products from?
I dont know about these fellows but i am having a similar issue and i got it from acid mods. The guy called today acting like i was an idiot and i explained to him the issue and he still acted like i was the problem. I will give them credit they are shipping me a new unit asap, but he said they were quality checked two times before they were sent out. I doubt it. I think this is an awesome concept just a little disappointed in the quality you are getting for the money spent. I will update as soon as the new unit gets here and let you know how it goes.

You will find the odd one is faulty from a batch, but there is always your warranty so be confident in that.

What I have found is some users are being a little too heavy handed with the cables - saying that i will mention to Xecuter that the design probably needs firming up a little around a couple of the connectors.

Ive used one myself on an old overheating jtag machine and it still works flawlessly.

i had the same problem so i went back carefully and rechecked all the wiring .. did a few diagnostics and tried again same problem i was gettin the ring of death .. so i looked over at the power brick and it was bright red im like oowoww theres the problem right there i guess having an internal fan that i got from radio shack along side the rest of equipment jus was too much so i found an out ac adapter that fit 100-240v i think and walla its works flawlessly love it soo happy i bought it thank teamexecuter

This problem is caused by the black cable not making a proper connection to the little adhesiv junction board...

I know it's an old topic but it might help others who stumble across it...

I take my last comment back, mine was working fine for a couple of weeks & then it started doing it again...

I hooked the drive directly to the mobo missing out all the stuff in-between using Ck3 socket to power & eject the drive & its still giving me the green flashing eject button.... my problem must be with the drive's external housing...

I've replaced a couple of the little plugs & trimmed a couple of little bits on the external housing in my quest to getting this thing to run properly, I don't think Ck3.co.uk would honour the warranty because of this :( anybody else got any ideas?...
