Hi. The problem with your drive is that you need to flash it, this happens when you switch out the drive of your console for another one (obviously). You see, each xbox 360's motherboard comes with it's own unique key and each key is married to the dvd drive, without this key your new dvd drive won't work. If you replaced the old drive with a new one of the same model all you need to do is open the old dvd drive, remove the circuit board and replace it in the new one. you can follow this link for visual instructions on how to do that http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G5hdC2kx4-Y ....... now if you replaced it with a different model of drive say a hitachi for a samsung you will need to flash the new drive, which really isn't for novices but with proper instructions I'm sure you can get it done, follow this tutorial, you'll have to register on the site first to see the tutorial, don't worry it's free to register..http://xbox360iso.com/showthread.php?t=95039 .

Have a good one!

My xbox dont play games it just plays dvds how do i fix it


1. Make sure your game discs are all clean, free of scratches, etc.

2. Test multiple games to ensure that it isn't isolated to just one or two discs

3. Unplug your 360, wait a few minutes, plug it back in, and attempt it again (full power cycles sometimes help these strange issues.)

4. Ensure you have the latest firmware upgrade (you'll need to connect the 360 to the Internet to download the latest upgrade.)

Also, if your 360 is modified in any way, this could affect your ability to play game discs, depending on the settings and the type of modification.

If above given steps do not work, kindly send yor Xbox 360 to MS support, and do not try to flash your drive at home, it would void your warranty

Bought new dvd drive benq 6038


LOL well 9 months later, I'll answer your question. EVERY Xbox360 dvd drive is "married"to it's motherboard. The communication between the drive and motherboard is encrypted with a key (aka- DVD-key) IF you don't flash the dvd-key from the original drive to the replacement then there is no way the Xbox will ever be able to play anythngg other than music and dvds. You NEED the correct key to encrypt/decrypt the 360 games so the motherboard can understand it.

Disc drive for xbox 360 isnt working properly


You have to put the key from the old drive into the new one. The Key is the board under the laser. It is specific to your xbox.

Cant play games due to "put disc into a xbox 360 console"?


This problem is caused by your disc drive.... A new disc drive bought off of ebay, generally costs about 50 bucks, including the shipping and handling..... You will need to open your xbox to get the model number... yes, it does matter... Once you get the new disc drive... you need to open up the old disc drive... and you will see a memory chip inside and you will need to be VERY careful not to rip any of the parts it is connected to... once you have the chip out... you will need to take the chip out of the new disc drive, and replace it with the chip from your old disc drive... (each xbox 360 has its own unique memory, which can only otherwise be installed by flashing it through a sata computer which much more complicated than it really should be).... once you put the old chip into the new disc drive... put everything back together... for a tutorial on opening an xbox 360 and also fixing disc drive in your 360... i recommend youtube,,, and the person's name i recommend is "fixyourownxbox" These videos are definitely helpful, and saved me mucho dinero $ :D.... Good luck... if you have anymore questions, dont be afraid to ask... i would be more than happy to answer them

Xbox 360: disk drive


Your system is fine, the disk is a different story. By moving your Xbox 360 the drive does some funky things. The disk probably has some deep grooves around the egde. In future, dont move the 360 or backup your xbox 360 games with http://www.everything4360.com Support Rich
