    I've never used firmware toolbox but I can help you with Jungle Flasher. Do you have all the tools to connect and flash the drive? Such as the VIA card and CK3?

Xbox 360 will not read disc


You need to either clean the laser or replace the dvd-rom drive.
Both of these cases involve opening up the console and voiding any warranty Microsoft offer.
First you need to determine if its not reading a certain type of disc, or not reading any disc at all, if iys not reading any disc at all, it may have grime or dirt on the laser causing the problem.
You can clean the laser with a clean cue-tip or cotton swab, by opening the console, removing the dvd-rom drive and then opening the dvd-rom drive case to expose the laser.
If after cleaning the laser it still does not read discs, you need to replace the dvd-rom drive. I hope this helps. Good luck.

My x box will play cd's and dvd's but not games. do you know what i can do to fix that. when i put in a game it says to put disc in an x box 360 console.


Here's how:

1. Carefully open the Xbox by removing the torx screws and then releasing the clips that hold the case together. The clips and molding pieces all come off easily; pry them open carefully.

2. Load the flash firmware disc into the DVD drive and power off the Xbox.
3. Disconnect the DVD drive from the SATA cable and note the brand of drive used in your Xbox. Currently Microsoft uses Hitachi, Phillips and Toshiba DVD drives in the Xbox 360. Only the Toshiba and Hitachi drives have firmware updates.

4. Connect the DVD drive to your PC with a cross-wired SATA cable interfaced to a compatible SATA port. Confirm that the video cable is connected to the Xbox so that it won't turn off during the flash process.

5. Hold the two loose wires of the cross-wired cable together and press the "Start" button on the Xbox. Separate the wires immediately when the green light begins to flash on the front of the Xbox. The light will begin to flash quickly and the drive will begin to spin as it enters mode "B."

6. Turn the PC on and allow it to fully boot from the DVD drive. If Windows appears to fail the boot, eject the DVD and it will finish booting. You've successfully flashed the drive.
7. Reassemble the Xbox and enjoy playing the backup of your favorite game. Sources: http://www.ehow.com/how_2316522_flash-xbox-dvd-drive.html

Bought a Replacement Samsung TS-H943 DVD-ROM Drive for Xbox 360


Hello. The pcb board is "married" to the motherboard with a certain firmware. If you didn't flash the new drive with the correct firmware it will not work. The best thing to do is just replace the laser if you have DVD drive problems. I hope you still have the old one! Good luck to you. Thanks!

Xbox 360 says to play disc put it in an xbox 360 console


The box isn't loading the decoder softwarer for the Disc. The Xbox discs are encoded HD DVD-ROM discs, and the box needs to recognize them so it can load the decoder software. It probably says "play dvd" on the xbox dashboard right?

Xbox 360


hello

First point is you need to extract the firmware from the old original (very important) drive which involves opening up the xbox 360. there are many guides online which show how to do this. Try www.360mods.com and select tutorials where there are nice video tutorials which you can pause and do at your own pace on almost anything xbox 360 related. To explain this in full detail here would take an eternity and i find that video tutorials work best. I know that I'm sending you to another site but trust me that site is a goldmine of information and well put together too.

Should mention that within thisa firmware lies the dvd key if you follow the video tutorials and successfully extract the dvd key then i suggest you make many copies of this key called (orig.bin) if you lose it then your xbox 360 £200 odd pound machine becomes a very expensive dvd player.
