You can get the key from what ever f/w you currently have on the drive. Just dump the f/w and extract the key like you would if it where original f/w

If you can't read the f/w off the drive and need to replace it then I think you’re screwed.

just go through tutorials on XS. you dont need a spinning disc to dump your FW. just use the mtkflash program at dos to dump it.

He has a Hitachi drive... mtkflash is only for Samsung.

Just read the pinned topics and tutorials.. it will describe how to extract your key.

a common problem of the v78 is that a plastic piece part of the assembly (on top in fact) that makes the DVD spin is quite fragile. It will often break, leaving the drive in what seem to be good condition except the dvd never spin.

You will need to disassemble the drive and glue, the two or three parts in which it broke, back together.

It will most probably work for a while after, but plse take a copy of your KEY and print one as well (hd dies, get reformatted...)

you can also check Xbox360 / Hardware General

if it is not mechanical (the round plastic piece on top broken), then I can only see to find someone to desolder the chip and extract the fw with a programmer.

Just for my own knowledge... why does the drive need to spin to extract firmware??

I am not as familiar with Hitachi since I own a Samsung.

Then maybe you need to read some pinned topics and tutorials. wink.gif

The v78 has to spin up a disc to extract the key using FW-ToolBox, which is the only thing that can dump/flash the v78 without removing the chip and using an external programmer. If it were a v59 or lower you could get the FW off it with just the C4EVA .bat files that come with the FW and get a backup of the FW that way to get the key, but since it's a v78 ya have to do it a certain way and unfortunately that way involves spinning up a disc.

@ CGLUE - Have you seen if the motor is bound up at all? or tried another laser? The Motor controller IC on these Hitachi drives seems to be failing a bit too and that could be the cause as well, which means either replacing it from one from anther drive, since it's impossible to find, or desoldering the FW chip for sure.
