Hey all

I recently purchased a console on ebay, and all was well....when i got it, it found it had a benq drive, but definitely not the original.....anyway, the drive will playback, dvd's, and music cd's....but won't play any backup up or original games...the seller advised me after i received the console that the original drive died because of him inverting the power, so he swapped it out with a known good benq drive without doing any modding spoofing etc...

Is their any hope for me?....im guessing NO since i would need to get the original firmware key at the least.

Thanks in reply

No hope,

Depending how much you payed ask for money back or keep the dvd drive and use it with your computer to make backups.
Then buy a new arcade and mod it.

You could see if the seller has the original drive, possibility to extract the key is there
