I purchased a used Xbox 360 (The case is the Halo 3 case w/HDMI, I don't know much else.from the list of the craig. No red ring, just wouldn't read disks (open tray error).
I purchased a new laser, swapped it out, no change. Returned the laser.
Purchased a "refurbished" Benq drive (same as the one that was in the xbox).
I swapped the PCB's from the DVD drives (from the old drive to the new drive).
I had the same issue. So I swapped the FPC from the laser to the PCB for the drive and
Now the xbox sees and plays DVD's just fine. But when I insert a store purchased game, it says play DVD..
If you let it load by itself it tells you to play the disk in an XBOX 360.
I'm lost and need some direction/help. I've googled until I'm ready to bang my head on the wall.
I am figuring that this is caused by someone screwing up a mod of the drive, but I'm not sure. I don't even know if the xbox is modded or not (I know it's been opened by previous owner(s).
Thanks in advance.
