    you need the dvd drive key from the old one or to switch the board from the old drive. My guess is that the board in the drive is bad so that is no longer an option. the key is matched to the motherboard and is needed for the drive to work.
    The only hope you have if Im right about the board being bad is to jtag if its on an old enough dashboard or reset glitch hack it and get the key that way. nether one is easy if you cant solder and or are new to that stuff. Yours is glitch able if that is the original drive type(all HDMI models are). You will still need a new drive and it will need firmware flashed to it with the matching key or the drive will not work. If you leave it reset glitched its the same as jtaging and you will no longer be able to go on line but you can then run games from the hard drive. Setting all that up isn't noob friendly.
