Changing Xbox 360 Motherboard.
Posted 02 September 2007 - 04:25 AM
Therefore, I bought a working motherboard from ebay which I was planning on putting into my xbox with my original dvd-drive. I now understand I need the dvd-drive key from the new motherboard and I need to apply this key to my original dvd-drive.
So the question is how can I do this?

It depends on what DVD drive model/version you have now (Hitachi v46, 59 etc., Samsung ms25, ms28), as well as what the model/version of the original one was too. If they are different you're going to have to spoof the FW of your drive as well as inject that key into the FW. Spoofing the FW has to be done because if the drives are different models it's likely to throw an error about it.

I have a broken 360 with my own dvd-drive.
I bought a new xbox 360 mobo from ebay and it comes with a dvd-drive key.
Now how can I imput the dvd-drive key onto MY dvd-drive?
I have a Hitachi v46 drive. And the key is for a samsung drive.
How can I flash the new key to my drive. Please can someone provide me with steps?

Tutorials for all of that are in the Newbie Chat and Technical DVD-ROM forums. If ya don't have a compatible SATA chipset you'll need to get that first off, it's all explained in the tutorial by Textbook and there are others that deal more specifically with going from one drive model to another, which is what you'll be doing.
