I'm not sure what is wrong with it... I flashed it using the SLAX CD method, and received a successful flash 100% confirmation, but no games will play... original or backups of my originals. What are the signs of a bricked drive? The XBOX 360 starts up fine, but keeps saying unplayable disc! Please help! I should include that the drive does open and close normally... so it is operating somehow. I even tried cleaning the lens... but still nothing.
