So I have an Xbox 360 with a Bad Model # VAD6038 XBOX / DVD Drive ( I hear this is common in older models) So here is what I have found out: Each individual console ( as far as I know) has an individual code imprinted on it that acts like a key. The key as it were is on the components housed inside the xbox. If you try and take the old drive out and put a new one in it will just say something along the lines of "Please insert xbox 360 Disk" . You have three options: Find another XBOX Drive that is the same model and switch the logic board out of the old Drive and put it in the new working drive. Second You can do a firmware swap in which you use a program like JungleFlasher to take the key from the first (Broken Drive) and back it up then put it on the Second drive . The reason I am here is because I tryed the first solution and accidently got on of the solder points to hot and now I cannot solder a wire back onto it correct trace. I looked up any possible other ways to fix my dead 360 and came up with one final solution but I have no clue how to implement it . The solution is that you take a "14mm tsop32 adapter" and a programmer and pull the old key off of the chip on the dead logic board and then proceed using jungleflasher to put the key unto the new drive. I dont really know anything about using a TSOP32 adapter or a programmer for that matter and need help figuring out what steps I need to take to figure out which steps I need to take to bring life back into this xbox. Any help would be greatly appreciated! Link to my horrible soldering accident where it will no longer hold solder. "http :// imgur .com/ O7BTN"
