I got a weird problem with an xbox slim. A friend of mine has a slim xbox which originally had the 0225 drive in it. He tried to do the kamikazee hack but it ruined the board. Luckily he first got the key before trying.
He ordered a replacement pcb online. The store sent him a message later on that the PCB was out of stock and if he wanted a replacement 9504 drive. He called me if it was ok to get that drive instead of the replacement PCB. I did a google search and thought it should work just fine.
We took the old 225 firmware, created a 3.0 version of that and flashed that to the 9504 drive.
Now the following is the case. Some of the games (only tried with a couple of xgd3 games, checked with abgx 1.06, burned on verbatim) ... Some play... others won't (unrecognized disc) ... This can't be a firmware problem is it?
Can i solve this by replacing the laser?
Thanks in advance.
