Hello, i bought a bunch of joblot consoles for cheap.

Not sure if the cunt had been fucking around with one of them. I asked him if they where all original drives, and he said yeah.

I loaded a game in and it said play DVD…

I put driver san francisco in and it wanted me to update. Does that now mean that it is the original drive?

Also, when i put a game in now and let it load, it says “play game” but when i play it, i get a black screen then it bounces me back to the dashboard. Has he just put a different drive in it?

why don’t you read the firmware out and try writing stock fw with that key and see if it plays any originals…?

try a ap.25 game like mw3 or mw2 and if black screen then i would say it is a different drive with orig key .will play all but ap.25 games. then try to install the game in question to the hdd if it installs then its not the laser. if it fails to install then the laser may be weak and that would give the black screen and send u back to dash. also when u say it says play game is there a game icon or just play game? if no game icon then the laser is most likely going out. clear the system cache then try the game in question offline and see such as single player without any tu updates. let us no the out come. good luck. but this i do know the dvd key is good as driver wouldnt play nor would anything else. the question is orig or not.

also when you have the =wrong dvd key=, xgd2 games will say Play DVD, but xgd3 games will say Play Game (and they actually say Game, instead of the title of the game).
