    theres 2 ways to do this u can used the old key from the old drive by extracting it using an extractor ( if you know what your doing ) but it requires u to get a ck3 probe to extract the key files from the board . 2nd option by a new dvd drive .

This sounds like bad news . Send it back to the seller .
More than likely if you get white screen with an" insert 360 disk to play" then drives has been replaced improperly ( need to swap the
old Drives P.C. board to new drive ) Email the seller and get your
money back or a replacement that works .

@_@ Loco Xbox 360 Problem Guys I have no idea whats wrong with it. It's not playing any games. The laser reads CDs and DVDs flawlessly. The crazy part about it is that it DOES READ the games initially...


It seems your laser isn't reading the second layer on the games. Regular DVDs have only one layer of information, Xbox 360 games are "Dual Layered" meaning twice as much information in the same area. I would recommend buying a replacement laser from eBay and installing it yourself (as you already know how to take the Xbox apart)

All my discs dont work


Yes this is getting more and more common it happens because the sensors on the back of the DVD drive have overheated, to fix it you need to stop the heat build up.

To do this use a good guide or send it in.

All my discs dont work.


Does the screen eventually read "Open Tray"?
This is a very common error, you need a DVD drive replacement. Only an experienced person can do this, if you don't do it correctly you won't be able to play games again. If you'd like I can do the repair for you, contact me at jordan@jordanselectronics.com

Disc Reader not reading disc


You can try to Clean with dvd cleaning kits...if doesn´t work..the only way fix is to disassemble the 360 and force the dvd laser adjusting the micro pot...located under the laser unit..But you will loose warranty and I think that the best way is to send your game console to microsoft...what hurts is that $140,00 you can buy 02 or even 03 xbox drives on ebay. Choose the best way! Good Luck!

Put this in an xbox 360 console


Did you try using a cd lens cleaner in the XBox 360 dvd drive? Check the cds that they are not scratched, and you could have your son try the discs in another XBox 360.
