If you have personally, or had someone else, modify the firmware on your console's DVD-ROM drive to play burnt games, you will need to restore the drive to its stock firmware and then finish the update through that. You can then reflash the DVD-ROM as desired to play any new games you wish.
If you have not modified your Xbox 360's DVD-ROM drive, then it is likely that your console either has a DVD-ROM that is failing, or it is simply having trouble putting the DVD-ROM into flash-ready mode to accept the update. To attempt to fix this error, eject the DVD-ROM tray and then pull the power cord out of the console, thus preventing it from automatically injecting the tray. Next, push the tray in about half way, with about a finger's width of room between the console's shell, and the apex of the curve in the hollow center of the DVD-ROM tray. Then, plug in the console and power it up while holding the tray in that position to prevent the console from injecting it automatically. Expect resistance, but it will eventually give up trying to move the tray. From there, you can release the tray and allow it to update as usual. Do not inject the tray by hand, let the console reset the tray on its own after it finishes updating. That should fix your problem if that was the specific problem causing the error. Either way, good luck, and I hope your error is resolved.
If you replaced the DVD-ROM drive yourself, some newer Xboxes do not recognize and/or function properly with older drives. I tried replacing a drive in an older Xbox with an older yet DVD-ROM drive, and it would not work. When replacing a DVD-ROM in an Xbox, it is advisable to use the same model drive, as the Xbox does strange things when you introduce different hardware. The url of a page is below that details the different drives that Xboxes use. See if your new drive is the same as the old one, and if not, that is almost certainly the issue.
cd's, dvd's,games,etc. if the regoin codes do not match up they will most likely not work. try looking at area codes on your xbox and cd (if it says the code) and see if they match up.
i hope i have helped, feel free to ask me any questions and let me know how it works out!!
There are only two connections, the SATA connection and the POWER connection.. maybe the power connection wiring info is what you are looking for? If you are thinking of replacing the dvd-rom drive in the unit I can tell you now that it's impossible unless you buy another one of the same make / model and "clone" it by flashing it with your firmware.
HI, the there is a balancer that is located inside the DVD ROM drive assembly(Spin Motor stabilizer). this has become unstable for some reason. this will result if disk scratches and game damage as well. unfortunately, this cannot be repaired without replacing the entire DVD ROM drive.
If it becomes unbearable, just simply replace the DVD ROM Drive.
I,ll assume this regarding the X-Box 360 ?
If you,ve replaced the Drive on a 360.
It will not work, due to the fact that the dvd rom drive, is paired to the motherboard. you can,t simply swap a faulty drive.
When the 360 boots, it,s looking for a Key On the dvd rom, before it will initialise it, and bootup.
I,d suggest looking on the net, regarding XBOX 360 drive flashing. if you still have your original drive, keep it. as your xbox won,t boot without it. you have to backup the drives key ( number ) And have it reflashed onto a replacement drive.
you could try a laser lens cleaner. Or possibly laser unit replacement.
