You cannot just replace the old dvd drive with a new one, you need to take the key from the old drive and then place it onto the new drive so it will work. all xbox 360 drives have a security key. If you still have your old drive then you may be ok and it may be that a technician can do the work for you. www.fixmyconsole.co.uk

Everyone i have the solution!!!! all you have to do is take apart the the original drive and unplug the circuit board, there are 4 ribbon cables be careful not to bend or tear them, then do the same to the new drive and switch the boards so the new drive has the security key and firmware of the old drive and voila youre back in business

Ok all you have to do is take the back cover off the old drive which is hardcoded to the 360 and remove the large green crcuit board and put it in the new drive and walla finished
