    Just heads up Xbox is recalling power cords on Xbox made before Oct of 2003, they may get hot and cause a fire. All you have to do is go to this site http://replacements.webprogram.com/en-us/programoverview.asp or www.xbox.com which will take you to the link i gave you. You will need your manufacture date and serial number which are on the bottom of your xbox fill out the page and they will send a new version power cord to you .

    I already got mine. The recall letter came the same day I received the cord (kinda funny). The cord and it's packaging seem to make it soundd like it is in fact power supply that has the problem and not the cord itself. The replaement cord, which is for early xboxes only, has the same kind ground fault setup as modern hair dryer due, which is kind of odd. Needless to say, I haven't bothered to switch the cord out yet (it's on my non-LIVE xbox anyway :) ).
