All dvd drives in an xbox360 are married to the motherboard. The new dvd drive needs to be flashed with the bin from the old drive in order for it to play games. We can do this for you if your interested email us xbox360fixer@verizon.net

I switched disk drive from 360 to 360 and now it wont play dvds someone please help!!


the issue is with in the swapping. The system inbedded a security code that is only identify by that single xbox360. In order for your system to recongize your disk drive in another xbox360 is if 1. the diskdrive is replica of the one swaped then only the chip under the drive is needed from that system or 2. flashing the disk drive. **BOTH ARE ILLEGAL**

you can manage either one by googling flashing xbox360 diskdrive ______ <--- the type of diskdrive you swaped out.

Hi guys I found out why the disk wont read in my system anyway


Interesting. Not all Xbox 360s use the same type DVD drive. There are at least 3 different brands - Benq, Samsung, and Hatachi. There are various ways of determining this, besides opening the Xbox 360. Based on the drive type, there are different versions of firmware(the software on the drive that communicates with the Xbox 360). Some firmware modifications Microsoft doesn't want consumers to know because it allows the playing of cloned dvds.

My xbox 360 wont read any disk, what do i do?


If you haven't already, try running a dvd cleaner through it a couple times. Usually clears it up for me.
Good luck. Please let me know how you made out, thanks.

Xbox 360 diskdrive


Im sorry to hear about that Markis, but they Xbox and the 360's drives are not interchangeable. For one the Xbox had this random multi pin connector, while the 360 has a SATA connector.
But dont despait just yet, IS your 360 still undre warranty? you can send it it to Microsoft and have them repair it. Just call 1-800-4MY-XBOX and send it in to them.

Xbox doesnt read disks


If you have a Hard Disk Drive or Memory attached to the console, turn the console off and remove the Hard Disk Drive (HDD) unit and any attached Memory Unit (MU), then switch on your console and try the disc again. If this seems to resolve the issue, turn off your console, attach the HDD and MU again, and then delete any saved games for the game that is causing problems.
Note If it is possible to do so, save the games to a separate MU.
To find out how to remove and connect the Hard Disk Drive from your console, see the following Microsoft Knowledge Base article:

New Xbox 360 disk drive doesn't play games


well my friend thats because each xbox 360 drive is unique for each console so it only works on the original console, to solve this you have to flash the firmware from the old drive and put it the new one, there are many sites explaining it just google it.
