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

Xbox 360 DVD Drive Not Reading Games Only DVD,CD after replacing the dvd rom


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.

I replaced my dvd rom drive and instead of asking to play game it says play dvd wont play game yet everything else seams to work fine


the dvd drive and motherboard are linked with a key, it sounds like you've just swapped drive's without swapping the board out of the drive thats why you're getting this error to fix it you must swap the drive boards aswell.just search youtube,you'll find plenty of detailed vids on how to do it.

How do you change out X BOX 360 DVD ROM


The easiest way is to buy another drive of the same make as your old one e.g if your drive is a samsung buy another samsung check for the make and model on the lid of the drive then swap the circuit board as this contains the firmware needed to match the 360 motherboard, other than that your looking at dvd key extraction done via a pc look on jungleflasher,com for a tutorial, or if your in the uk i can do this for £14 returned

Do i have to flash a new dvd rom drive if i replace it with an old brioken 1 on the xbox 360?


Not if you have the same model. Meaning if it's a Samsung, you replace it with a Samsung. Or a Liteon with a LiteOn.

All you have to do is take apart the drives and swap the circuit boards. They are on the bottom of the drive and it's not difficult.

If you need to buy a drive, I recommend http://parts.consolerepairguy.com They are about $30 there.

I repair them, so I'm sure about this.

Xbox 360 Pro : To Play This Disk Error


Unfortunately , a new xbox360 game cant be played in a normal xbox (not xbox 360)

The problem is that the new xbox is way different on the inside than the original xbox is. Because it is way more powerful, you can put an old xbox game into a 360, and it will work fine (most of the time), but if you try the reverse there is no way to make it work.

Bought a Replacement Samsung TS-H943 DVD-ROM Drive for Xbox 360


Hello. The pcb board is "married" to the motherboard with a certain firmware. If you didn't flash the new drive with the correct firmware it will not work. The best thing to do is just replace the laser if you have DVD drive problems. I hope you still have the old one! Good luck to you. Thanks!

CD/DVD ROM disappears


I would think either your IDE cable is faulty or the IDE connector on the motherboard, try swapping cables or use a double IDE cable on IDE 1 connector. You may have a faulty drive ide connection input in which case a new DVD Rom is the answer, only cheap nowadays.
