Its an illegal activity (or can be) but probably would not be posted here. run a search for xbox-scene or digital-forums im sure you will find guides there.

How can I flash my xbox 360? it wont recognize the new dvd rom drive.


Disconnect all cables from the Xbox 360 and remove the faceplate from the front of the console. Lift the plastic tabs on the outer shell and remove the plastic casing from the machine. Unscrew the Torx size 7 screws and lift open the metal cover. Unplug both the power and SATA cables from the rear of the DVD drive and lift it out of the console. Replace it with the new DVD drive, and connect the power cable to the unit. Connect your SATA cable to the DVD drive and a free SATA port on your computer.Turn on your computer and open a web browser. Download JungleFlasher and run the program. As of September 2010, JungleFlasher is the most stable and up-to-date flashing program for Xbox 360, and it is also the only program capable of flashing Xbox 360 drives from within Windows (earlier programs used MS-DOS). Click "Flash .BIN to DVD" in the program's main menu and select your Xbox 360's DVD drive. The program will flash the new DVD drive for use with your Xbox 360 console.Turn off the computer once the flashing process is complete and disconnect your SATA cable from the DVD drive and your PC. Reconnect the Xbox 360 SATA cable to the new DVD drive, then close the metal cover on the console. Rescrew the Torx size 7 screws and replace the outer plastic shell on the Xbox 360. Return the faceplate to its original position then reconnect all external cables and accessories to the console. Power on the Xbox 360 and the replacement DVD drive will function normally.

Everytime i put a disc in my xbox it reads dvd. I got to keep ejecting it and closing it back to make it read the game . Pleasee!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! help me


Just to make certain it's not a burnt game on a modded/flashed xbox then more likely your optical dvd drive on the DVD player for the xbox 360 is going out. The lens and laser can be acting up inside and the only way to fix this is to replace the optical dvd drive. You can remove the optical drive and it has 4 screws. You carefully remove the chip inside and transfer to new xbox 360 optical drive which by the way has to be the exact same model to work properly. There are detailed instructions on youtube on how to remove and replace a xbox 360 dvd player.

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

Installed new Xbox DVD ROM, but cannot read games


The DVD drives must match the motherboard that it came with. Unless you go through a very complicated re-flashing process. If the motherboard and DVD drive do not match, it will not play 360 games

360 drive only reads dvds, not xbox 360 games, just says put in an xbox 360 console.


You need to flash the drive with the old drive's key; otherwise the your xbox motherboard will not allow that drive to access the gameplay engine and will not allow you to play games.

Xbox 360


you flushed it wrong, they told that if you replace your dvd drive without or wrong flush the system, the system will no longer accept that dvd drive. Unfortunately I dont know how to flush the xbox. You need to look for website that teach or know how to flush the xbox before you connect your new dvd drive.
