    A year and a half ago i flashed my lite-on drive. I managed to get the flash right but ever since then the console has constantly flashed green and the drive keeps ejecting. It will not read anything. I have tried reflashing different firmwares,stock etc. I have tried pressing outtro several time. I have checked all the wires. I have made sure the drive is fully closed. I have checked the position of the laser. Recently to rule out the drive i bought a new drive that i got preflashed with my drive key. The problem was exactly the same.

    This is what happens (someone elses video)

    So my last option is this fix i found.
    ImageShack® - Online Photo and Video Hosting
    Can anyone give me a hand to see if this is the right fix given the symptoms?

    Out of all I could find online, people were saying to replace the drive, but then others with the same issue were saying it was probably a motherboard issue (hence why that thread was still open). I mean, it's worth a shot for the wire, do you have a link to where you found that photo? Then maybe I can understand it a bit more!

    have you tried changing your power and sata cable? also check for dust around the connections, the whole thing is the xbox does not understand that there is a drive connected to it!

    xbox does not see the drive and the eject thing points to the flash is corrupt... did you use a probe when extracting the key? try the new jungle flasher to see if the drive is not stuck in 0x72... to build a probe just use a spare power cable for the drive splice on/off switch on pin 6(power) cable and solder a probing pin to cable 11(ground) when jungle asks you to probe use the switch(off) and touch the mpx01 point with the probe on the board of the drive then just power it back on.. that would set it to proper mode and give you the key then just flash and that's all.. ^__^
