    i got 5 xbox 360's from a friend who got them from a clean out only one motherboard was working. i put the only working dvd-rom in the box in it the xbox works but i can't figure out how to get the dvd-rom to read games. i tried to flash the firmware on the dvd-rom won't read on any of my 6 computers. the dvd-rom is a hitachi 46. does anyone know a way to get it to read games besides jtag... or rgh..i don't care about playing burned games. just want to play games normally. thanks

    Do you have the drive that originally came with the working motherboard?

    they was all apart in the box ..so no clue which is which..plus the drives was taken a part all but the hitachi. so i can't test them to see which one reads om the xbox 360....yes someone took the dvd-rom's a part..-_- i pieced 2 back together but they won't read..the trays just keep popping out on them.

    Then you're pretty much out of luck. The drive board and the mainboard are married by a code, meaning that you need the fitting drive for your board. You could try getting all the codes from the non-working drives and then spoof them to the Hitachi drive one by one and hope that the drive itself isn't defective, but that would be a total pain (and you don't know if you even have the fitting drive for your board). Other than that you can only RGH, but that would be a total overkill, if you only want the drive key. Nowadays fixing up Xbox 360s isn't worth it anymore, fully working ones are too cheap.

    Normally you don't. Could be that the driveboards are shot.
