    Well you need to do a few things.

    1. Extract your DVD key from your original drive

    2. Determine what kinda drive you have, both your old drive and the new replacement drive. (Hitachi, Samsung)

    3. Modify your flashing firmware with your original DVDkey then spoof the firmware to your original drive model

    4. Flash your new drive with your key+spoofed firmware and your good to go

    To spoof and replace the key you need - 360 Firmware Toolbox Ver3 - and for the flashing part I suggest you read over Textbooks guide on 360modDOTnet
