Re: Hardrive reading disks error

2 Things can cause this: 1) if its a MODDED drive then the firmware on the drive might need to be updated. 2) the firmware Key in the drive doesnt match the xbox console's key... ie. the drive has been swapped with a different one.

Xbox 360 Pro : To Play This Disk Error

Unfortunately , a new xbox360 game cant be played in a normal xbox (not xbox 360)

The problem is that the new xbox is way different on the inside than the original xbox is. Because it is way more powerful, you can put an old xbox game into a 360, and it will work fine (most of the time), but if you try the reverse there is no way to make it work.
