If you have replaced the cd-rom drive with another on your console, first be sure you have the exact same model cd-rom drive. You do have to have firmware unless your clever. Your broken cd drive has like an oem number saved into the console so it will not work correctly unless you replace the code with a new one matching the new cd-rom drive. Another much easier way is taking the old cd-rom circuit board off your origional drive and putting it on the new drive. It will trick your xbox into thinking it has the same cd drive in it and with everything about your new drive working it should work great. Here is a link to a metacafe video of a guy who shows how to do it. Good luck

You can't just swap drives! to do that you need to do some very advanced ****! Like ripping firmware off it and what not

If you swap drives from another xbox 360 will not work unless its the same dvd drive thats why your 360 plays cd's and dvd's only !!1
