Samsung Drive, Original / New, Won't Read Any Disc
Posted 13 August 2004 - 01:56 AM
The drive shows no sign of wear and worked flawlessly a week ago, even after I flashed the TSOP.
A replacement drive works fine, so obviously the drive has developed some kind of problem.
It spins up and spins down, evox says "Init" while this is going on, then says "no disc".
If this is new, and a replacement works fine, based on what happens, can anyone suggest what I should look for if I take this drive apart? THANKS!

This drive does not do anything at least software-wise, the drive does all the normal steps in spining and reading back and forth, checking the disc, but the XBOX does not see the disc and does not even attempt to read it.

I have a new xbox with a faulty samsung 605b, the xbox has hardly been used
can a 616q/e laser assembly be fitted to one of these?
the only difference I can seem to find is the pcb layout and the firmware memory size on a 616q is 256k compared to 128k on a 616t/f

Well, try to clean the lens with a cotton bud dipped in some isopropnol. A laser assy from 616e won't work! If you have one or can get one why not mod it. It makes superb drive which will eat any other drive for the xbox. See my tut hosted on www.xbox100.com/tutorials/turbochargesammy.pdf.

This is what I noticed after taking the top and bottom cover off:
The laser assembly drops when the tray is ejected.
When the tray closes, the magnetic head of the laser assembly sticks to the metal top cover. This lifts the laser closer to the disc so it can read it.
However, when my tray closes, the magnetic head is not catching to the top cover. Therefore, the laser is too far away to read the disc. (I'm talking about a few millimeters too far away) I have searched this forum forever now but nobody seems to have a solution to this problem, yet alot of people have this problem.
edit/ that is an awesome tutorial you wrote for the 616e, i'll be saving that for later.
