Hi,

Just for testing I flashed a samsung drive with 2.01 firmware and spoofed it as a hitachi drive. Tried my backup of MW2 and it worked fine. I then put in a backup of Rage I made on a non Virb disk with my own stock dvd burner and tried to play the game. I get 1 red light (bottom right, xbox laying on it’s side) and and E66 error. I put my og hitachi back in the xbox and everything worked fine,but I could not use the xdg3 backup (it just makes my xbox reset). So I gues it’s safe to say you can’t spoof samsung to hitachi.

someone was saying not to spoof it, but just put the dvd key and it would work.

Hey guys, I was having the same issue and followed your instructions.
Now the Xbox doesn’t show E66, but when I put a XDG3 game it soon says that the disc
can’t be read. It’s odd because it boots fast and shows the info with the Y button, and
begins to transfer to Pendrive normally (this receives the disc error too).
And I burned the discs ok, with verify, Burner Max etc. Kprobe2 tests are reasonable
(small PIF 6 peaks and PI max 40 overall). I tested chinese verbatim (Umedisc) and
Elgin (Umedisc) which work ok for my XDG2 games, but I’m receiving this quick error for
XDG3 (Batman and Dark Souls).

I have a Phat X360 with a Samsung flashed as samsung, with LT2.01. Original drive was a LiteOn.
I bought recently a Liteon drive and I’m waiting for it.

if your blank dvd supports 2x try burning at that speed. If you still get disc read errors it could be that your laser in the dvd is old and is having trouble reading burned disc’s. Look up and see if the lite on laser eye will replace the samsung one and swap it out (it’s not that hard). This might fix your problem. In general I find that playing burned games kills your dvd laser eye rather quickly (over a matter of months). This is why it’s always good to install the games.

I have a samsung drive thats spoofed to work on a console that had a liton drive originally. None of my call of duty backups work but all my other backups are fine.. anyone have any ideas why? call of duty backups worked perfectly on my Hitachi drive.

Is it coming to do with samsung drives not having ap check ability?

you don’t have to spoof the samsung to a lite on, just use the samsung as a samsung. Just change the dvd drive key to your original one for the xbox. If you xbox thinks it’s a lite on , it’s trying to do checks that the samsung just can’t do.

Thanks for the info, thugzbaby.

I’m afraid the discs I have to test are 4-8x.
I’ll try the truncate method and will bring feedback.

Does any of you believe it could be a protection against switched drives or something?

hay thugzbaby!

So if I simple un-spoof the drive but make sure the key is correct then It should have no problem booting games with ap25? I understand that if not spoofed my console will get flagged but I don’t intend on ever using this console online.

So basically even tho the original drive was a liton, I can still use a samsung without spoofing but i still have to insure it has the correct key? And this should allow ap25 games to boot?

Cheers for the advise in advance.
