Did I mess up? My friend swears thats the original drive and I have the correct key.
Thanks in advance, I'm about ready to just break down and buy a new one at this point. Its frustrating.

Are you sure you've not mistakenly put the old one back in?
If it was a key issue, you would still get 'Play DVD' but getting open tray points to a drive/cable problem.

it was brand new. Still possible I suppose. But will someone please confirm I did the flash correct? I'm picking up another xbox tonight, not sure anythings wrong with it, but it is free so I'm not complaining.
Like I said, if there was a problem with the key you'd still be able to read a game as a DVD-Video. If the firmware didn't flash then the drive wouldn't respond.
Fire up the drive with just power and eject it - you'd probably want a connectivity kit tho. Pop a disc in the drive and close the tray. Then LISTEN to the drive. Even without being connected to a console, it should happily spin up. If it's not doing this then the drive is at fault. Frankly this is the first thing you should do to test a drive before messing around with firmware
