Hi. i had ix1.51 on my benq drive vad-6038. so i made a backup of the ix1.51 firmware and the drive key. i wanted to update to 1.6 but when i did i got error E66 so i flashed back to ix1.51. when i flashed back it read the original and the backup. but when i turned the xbox 360 off then on it wouldnt play the games. it just say reading->open tray. now the drive dont read the original and the backups. i flashed it with jungle flasher and the status came up as write verified ok. but now its not reading games and only reading dvd. do i need to get a new drive and if i do would it come with the original firmware of the drive so i can back it up and flash to ix1.6. thanks in advance.

I had an issue like this after I flashed a BenQ drive. Was very picky on which games it would play and I would get the open tray error. I tried a POT calibration on the laser a couple of times but no luck. I eventually had to replace the laser.

thnks so the problem is with the laser. so i have to buy a new laser or what if i buy a new drive would it come with the firmware that plays the original xbox 360 games? and also i found out that my xbox firmware drive says OSIG: SATA DVD ROM 6243 instead of OSIG:PDBS VAD6038-6493OC like in the guide. do you knw why?

62430 is an older revision of the firmware and it must be spoofed like that. There has been some issue with Lite-ONs being flashed and the laser will be burned out. I'm not sure if that is the case here.

SOLVED
Leerage thanks for all your help friend. the problem was that the dvd drive was actually dirty from inside. so i opened it up and cleaned it. now it works like a charm. i wanted to update to 1.6 from 1.51 but i am sticking to 1.51 since i dont really know the diffence between 2. so i flashed it back to ix1.51 and now all the games are working fine both original and other ones. once again thanks for all your help. have a good day!Peace

1.6 is more secure than 1.51 on live and adds ripping features if you want to rip your own games.
