    Do you still have the original drive? The drives are console-bound by a unique key. If the drive key and the mainboard key don't match, the Xbox 360 doesn't play games.
    You should also consider using punctuation marks, your posts would be way more easy to read then.

    If you don't have the original drive anymore: RGH. But you need soldering skills and hardware that is as expensive as a used Xbox 360, so it kind of isn't worth it.

    If you still have the original drive and can power it up you can get the drive key and flash it to the new drive. Or you can swap the drive board, which in my oppinion is harder to do. When flashing the drive you can directly flash it with LT 3.0 in one step and make it play backups.

    Hmm, ok. I thought you meant Hard drives. I just flash minds and I noticed games either give me dark screen and go back xbl menu and "say play game" or boots to this "put in a xbox 360 game" screen. Thanks.
