    How does one find out what version of XBOX they have?
    I bought mine new a week ago and it has a date of 6/22/02
    And what if the difference between the two versions?
    thanks

    The new ones have Live already loaded on them.

    Is that it. Just the Live software loaded on the harddrive?
    Does version 1.1 have quieter Fans?

    If it was made before August of 2002, it is version 1.0. If it was made in august, it could be either. If it was made after august, it is 1.1.

    So which version is better? Did version 1.0 have a lot of Dirty Disk errors?
    Does ver 1.1 have better drives and quieter fans?
    I guess what Im asking is should I exchange mine for version 1.1, I Just bought it a week ago and it has a date of 6/22/02 so its probally ver 1.0
    Is there anyway of telling which version it is on the outside of the box?

    Ken, from what I've been reading lately, exchange it. The X-box's made before August 2002 have a finincky dvd drive that is causing dirty disc errors (DDE's). I phoned 1-800-4MYXBOX and spoke to a csr. I am sending mine in under warranty for repair/replacement of the dvd drive. Mine was made July, 2002. It was purchased in early December and has been out of the box for maybe 35-40 days. Pretty brutal to have total game freeze-ups and skipping for a product that new. On a good note, the upgrade seems to be curing the problem.

    Cheers,

    Steve

    Went down to Frys Electronics and looked at the Xbox's
    and if you flip the Box over there is a cut out and it has the Manufacture date. Fry's were dated 12/02/02.
    Which is version 1.1
    Which I think have XBOX Live Installed ,os tweaks and Different Drives.
