Hi, 1st post here. I recently burned a downloaded ISO of Assassin's Creed 2. I burned this ISO to a DVD+R DL in the same manner as I did with another wave 4 game (GTA Episodes). Earlier today, GTA worked fine using the activate.iso disc on my ixtreme 1.6 Samsung s28 drive. However, upon using the activate.iso disc to try to boot Assassin's Creed 2, the dashboard said, "open tray" on the disc's icon. I tried again and was presented with "cannot read the disc, clean the disc with a damp cloth etc.". After this, I tried to boot GTA again. This time, GTA had the same "open tray" error. I tried a few more times with no luck. After this, I tried turning off the Xbox 360, unplugging the power, restarting the 360 and running an original game disc. I booted into the main menu of this game, then exited to the dashboard. I then tested GTA again, and this time it started. I tried Assassin's Creed 2 again, and the icon said "open tray" again. I tried this again with GTA and the problem had returned. I have since tried disconnecting the xbox 360 from power and using an original game disc to "revive" the drive again, but this is no longer working.
Is there something I'm missing here? Has anybody else experienced these symptoms? Does this mean that my drive has failed, or that it needs a reflash, or is there some way to reset the drive from the non-bit-check mode? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Xbox has Samsung s28 drive with iXtreme 1.6 firmware.
My Activate.ISO disc was working to boot a wave 4 game previously.
Xbox is no longer booting backups with activate.iso.
I have no wave 1-3 backups to test wtih.
Xbox can still boot original games.
