Hi Mrkingston,

Sorry to tell you whats up. The XBOX 360 console has a keycode match between the DVD drive and the Motherboard. What you need to do is remove the drive and swap your original Circuit board with the chinese drive and reinstall the chinese drive. The chinese drive can in no way operate unless it is first flashed with the original drives Keycode. Microsoft security issue.

just put the original board in your chinese drive and it should work.

Microsoft will not allow you to transfer any online content from on 360 to another. Its part of their anti-sharing efforts. You should be able to transfer all game saves, Gamerscore, and other media however.

When i put a game in it says unplayable disc

This could just be a dirty lens, try a cd or dvd cleaning disk, and check your games are in tip top condition the 360 hates damaged discs, otherwise you may have a faulty spindle magnet or the laser could be on its way, the spindle is cheap and easy to fix (does it eject the discs) if so it's more than likely your spindle. if its your lens then a new dvd drive can be bought for around £20 online. If its under warranty just send it back
