DVD Wont Eject properly

Sound like you might have a bad DVD drive the only recourse might be just replace the DVD drive. If it won't open.. most often you can use a paper clip to open the drive. There is usually a small hole near the eject button on the DVD drive where you can insert a paper clip end to open the drive and pull out the DVD. After removing the DVD you can test if the drive eject or not correctly with nothing in it. If it doesn't, have the drive replaced.

My xbox 360 stopped game update due to fault in lighton drive replaced drive with replacement now all that show up is status code 3080-351f-2800-0f00-c000-0034 help

this is because the ORIGINAL dvd drive was swapped out by whoever modded it, or you had the dvd drive replaced, but it was replaced by a different dvd drive type.

the error code means that the dvd drive inside is not the original dvd drive. and that the console has been flagged.

the only way to fix this would be to have someone switch out the current dvd drive with a model that's the same as the one that was originally in it. after that the console would be able to update just fine.

Xbox 360 DVD Drive Not Reading Games Only DVD,CD after replacing the dvd rom

If you replaced the DVD-ROM drive yourself, some newer Xboxes do not recognize and/or function properly with older drives. I tried replacing a drive in an older Xbox with an older yet DVD-ROM drive, and it would not work. When replacing a DVD-ROM in an Xbox, it is advisable to use the same model drive, as the Xbox does strange things when you introduce different hardware. The url of a page is below that details the different drives that Xboxes use. See if your new drive is the same as the old one, and if not, that is almost certainly the issue.

Good Luck!

Plays dvd but not games

When you replaced the DVD drive did you swap the circuit board (on the bottom of the DVD drive when you open it up).

Every DVD drive is "paired" with the Xbox 360, so you need to open up the DVD drives, and swap the green circuit boards on the bottom of the DVD drives. Should work after this.

Can you replace the internal DVD drive for LG RC797T? This is the 2nd time the internal drive has failed; LG wants more than the unit is worth to repair.

If the DVD drive is installed in a desktop computer, you can replace it with any branded DVD drive.
If the DVD drive is in a laptop, then you are most likely restricted to one from the laptop manufacturer.

Dvd drive of my hp dv2000 is not working. it does not read dvd or a CD, and message pops up insert a CD or DVD. drivers are updated. in its hardware config. it says drive cannot be started. do need to...

There is a screw (tiny machine screw) that holds the entire DVD/CD assembly in place. Usually this screw is located by looking on the bottom of the laptop and has a little picture of a cd embossed in the plastic. Sometimes this screw is under a "lid" such as the cover for the RAM or HDD, depending on how your laptop is engineereed.

Find this screw, unscrew it, set it aside and them pull entire cd/dvd assembly from computer. Replace the cd/dvd drive into the slot you pulled it out firmly and quickly.

Turn on and test reading of CD/DVD.

If love is found, replace screw holding asembly, etc.
If no love, replace CD/DVD drive.

Other sources of love:

correct cd/dvd driver.
remove/replace cd/dvd driver
update cd/dvd driver
