I have now found a guy offering to retrieve the dvd key from the CPU and give me the key, for a fee of course. He won't disclose how he does it, but is a reputable source.
Here is my question and Scenario...
Received a couple of boxes with DVD drives, but they clearly were not keyed right or not even the original drive for those boxes. Great, here I am stuck with this scrap box now! I read the F/W on the drives and found "FF" in the key - JF says this is a bad thing, and maybe thats why they dont work? Not so fast, I have read about the infectus chip but unfortunately linux is not my thing no matter how hard I try. Unable to locate original key I went to the net. I found a guy claiming to be the first and only to offer his solution to this problem. He said I can send in the console without the dvd drive, and he will return it with my Cpu key, dvd key etc... The guy has a rating of up over 750+ with 100% satisfaction.
I will not post a link to him unless a moderator says it is ok. Anyway my question is, Once I have the Dvd Key can I plug it into any drive? Keep in mind I do not have the original drives (at least they don't seem like it - obviously i would try to flash it to the drive it came with first) but lets say it theoretically had a hitachi 47d, the guy gives me the key and i slap into a samsung... will this drive work as long as the key is correct or do I need to know what make of drive was originally in the system?
Don't let the posts # fool you, it's been a while and as often as I tried to reset the password on my other account, i think M$ blocks the email from you guys on purpose because it never shows up in the inbox
thoughts or concerns? and can I post this guys Advertisement that I found?
