    Hi everyone,
    I have a Samsung SM25 Disc Drive that is dying. It gives me Play DVD error and sometimes the disc is not regonized. I have cleaned the lenses and POT calibrated to 3Ohms with a multimeter. It has improved a bit but didn´t fix the problem 100%. I guess my laser is really playing up now.
    I have found a new SM28 disc drive for a good price and I was just wondering if I change only the PCB from the SM25 to the new SM28 is enough? Or do I have to spoof the drive?
    I heard that MS can spot a spoof drive and you can banned you from live. As I play a lot online I don´t want to risk to get banned.
    Can I just insert my MS25 key direct into the SM28 firmware instead of change the PCB and play?
    Thanking you in advance for any replies.

    just change the board, the drive is the same only the firmware on the board is different, if you change your board you are taking your firmware with it!
