Question about Microsoft Xbox 360 Console

1 Answer

Won't recognize and load games, only DVD's.

The video chip went out on our xbox 360. We put in a new(used) mother board and now when we put in a game disc the system won't read it. If we put in a DVD, it will play. It will also play demos downloaded to the Hard drive. It will not play previously downloaded games on the Hard Drive.

    I replaced the whole motherboard. I got it 2nd hand and it didn't come with any paperwork. The s/n on the boards were only about 1,000,000 numbers different so i don't know when they change the numbers.

    Thx for the help also. I guess problem is that I have a motherboard without a drive key(used mother board and they don't have the key). Is there anyway to find out what that key is? If not then would I have to replace the video chip on the old mother board? I can solder but it is is the chip under the heat sink, that is going to be a job removing the old one and putting the new one in. Thank for your help and crispy_ninja, too thx guys!

    Did you replace the whole chipset or just the motherboard? the problem might be the motherboard is newer than the other components in the 360 so there is a lost signal when booting up games.

I got a brand new 'lips' Xbox 360 game, put it


You might have a bad game if it is used. If it is not check to see if it plays other games without issues. Your Xbox might need to be repaired lets hope that isnt the case. You may also want to try it on a different console if at all possible. If all else fails you maybe need a new xbox if you are dying to play that game

Your Xbox 360 lens are most likely dirty. And your 360 probably has something like dust stopping it from scanning your games. I suggest blowing into your DVD drive carefully and gently. If it still doesn't work I recommend sending your Xbox 360 back to Microsoft for a new one if your under warranty. If you don't have a warranty you could clean you lens by your self. But opening your 360 to clean the lens could make it worse so do it at your own risk.

Benq dvd drives


Ok the problem is all xbox 360 motherboards come with preset keys like a password everyone is different. your origanal benq vad 6038 dvd drive also has the key programed into its sst chip on the pcb (Printed Circut Board) which allows it to work with that motherboard (another way of explaning this is it works the same way as a wireless network anyone can connect to it but you must input the correct password to be able to connect and use the internet)

There is a solution you need to extract the dvd key out of your old dvd drive and inject it into your new one. To do this you will need a few tools
Xbox opening Kit V2

CK3 Pro Connectivaty Kit

Via Sata Pci Card

Jungle Flasher Software.

Dosent recognize games


you can take it apart (and void the waranty) and resolder the connection between the drive and the Xbox reader or just send it in to microsoft.... if you still have the waranty (which you probably do) then they will fix it for free
