Any idea why my xbox won't read anything anymore? It just stopped reading discs. I swapped out the drive for a known working one and I have the same problem.

With a disc in it at boot it just goes past flubber and stays on the logo screen.
Booting without a disc it goes to EvolutionX just fine. Put a disc in and it won't recognize it; just says Unknown. Every once in a while it will say Game and if I try to 'launch dvd' it just hangs and nothing happens.

Any ideas why this is? Even better, how the #%$@ do I get it to work? smile.gif

Make sure that your Games and Cd's are in good condition. Also make sure that the yellow cable is snuggly fit to the motherboad.

Then clear your cache. (do a search if you have no idea on how to clear you cache)

I have the exact same issue, just started yesterday.
Samsung DVD...cleaned, checked cables.
Boots a game once in 100 times.

My question, can I replace with just about any DVD-rom I purchase, or do I need a
specific drive? Please specify.

The box is hard modded and has been working great for 2 years.

Thanks in advance.
