Question about Microsoft Xbox 360 Console
I bought a new xbox 360 drive and installed it myself, now the game don't work on it. it says i need to install the disk into an xbox 360 system, then a bunch of chinese writing.
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.

Ok, traaav the problem with your drive is that you need to flash it, this happens when you switch out the drive of your console for another one (obviously). You see, each xbox 360's motherboard comes with it's own unique key and each key is married to the dvd drive, without this key your new dvd drive won't work. If you replaced the old drive with a new one of the same model all you need to do is open the old dvd drive, remove the circuit board and replace it in the new one. you can follow this link for visual instructions on how to do that http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G5hdC2kx4-Y ....... now if you replaced it with a different model of drive say a hitachi for a samsung you will need to flash the new drive, which really isn't for novices but with proper instructions I'm sure you can get it done, follow this tutorial, you'll have to register on the site first to see the tutorial, don't worry it's free to register..http://xbox360iso.com/showthread.php?t=95039 . I hope this helps your little problem.

I read on a site that after you install a new disk drive that you also need to install a application. on this site i read that on you simply have to put that file on a usb drive (Flash-drive or thumb drive). then install the app after you installed the hardware. im not to sure what site it was on but try to google it. try keywords like. Steps on installing xbox360 disk drives or software hacks for new disk drives.

Im not positive but i think you have either purchased the wrong type of dvd drive for your 360,or u have purchased a used one.they are keyed to the mother board of each 360 so you cant swap them with other used drives without flashing them.if you look on the bottom of the dvd assembly there is a little mother board,with a chip on it if you would have swapped that with the one on the new dvd rom before turning power on you should have been fine.im working on how to fix the problem.
good luck with your 360 : )

If your xbox keeps saying insert disk into an xbox360 there is no known way of fixing it! ive changed the circuit board in drive, i have attempted flashing it and i have put a new drive in and changed the serial key to the one from the existing drive,it still says the same thing,i think the problem is a chip on the mobo.the only way to solve it (sorry for saying this) is to send your xbox off to microsoft.its that or you can have a posh dvd/cd player,but you cant play no games on it.

Hey what i did was i got myself a lens cleaning disk from my local shop. the instructions usually tell you to put one drop on each brush. honestly that sucks! i put about 4-5 drops of their solution on each brush then i quickly put it into my 360 and played the disk, it did its job and my games once again work perfectly. i think this only works if you have a dirty lens though. so good luck everyone.
