    Is anyone familiar with these drives ? I replaced one with exactly the
    same drive but now the machine won't work. I have a feeling these
    drives are somehow "locked" to the motherboard. Does anyone know the
    exact procedure to solve any software issues associated with DVD drive
    replacement ?
     
  2. Have you googled first?

    I have read somewhere these drives use proprietary firmware because
    the data is read in reverse off of the DVD's. XBox 360 games are
    burned in reverse for anti-piracy, the drive reads the data from the
    outer edge of the disc, in towards the inner hub. I have no idea how
    to resolve this issue short of taking a scrap drive from another XBox
    360.
