    Are you talking about the old Xbox 1 or the Xbox 360? If Xbox 360, what two drives (brands) are you using?

    The dg-16d2s is a Lite-On drive (working).
    The vad6038 is a BenQ drive (non-working).

    Both drives have keys that match their original consoles. You now have a working Lite-On drive in a console that came with a BenQ, but the Lite-On's key doesn't match the "new" console's key.

    (using Jungle Flasher) You have to extract the key from the BenQ drive, then spoof that key to the Lite-On drive,so that it will work in the BenQ's console.

    Simplified: the drive & console keys must match.

    Read Jungle Flasher's tutorial.
