    Hi there, I have just replaced the Philips DVD drive in my Xbox 360. When I try to play a game I get the message "to play this disc, put it in an Xbox 360 console".

    thats because the key you need to have on the drive is on the old one, you cannot just swap drives, its a little more complicated than that.

    jungleflasher is by far the easiest. grab the key off the old drive and flash it to the new one. simple
