-Using the paperclip method to replace the dvd movie with the orignal game, which im pretty sure is working
because windows doesnt report any change in the disk.
-Start spinning the disk and hit "find magic number". Which at this point tells me my hotswap is too small.
I think your drive uncovered your plot to switch dvd on him .
Your swap with the emergency hole was detected and the dvd resynchronized on the x360 dvd, not good.
It is not all drive that allow you to use the emergency hole (pioneer are usually the best).
One way to know is that after the Spin Drive
In wxripper hit 'explore with wx360' :
-If the wx360 opens, close wx360 and 'Start Dump'
-If it does not open without an error, restart the process at the start because the swap did not work.
hope it helps,
