    Tech Have I just killed my 93450 drive?

    Ok went to flash my sons elite (havent done any in a few months) found out that it wasnt straight forward (its a 93450 Liteon) ordered the LT Switch 1.5 ..soldered it in - didnt work (my dodgy soldering) - cleaned it all up and did it again now I get the green light on the switch but my drive wont show up in Jungleflasher anymore - PLUS Ive noticed it wont eject when using the eject button on the CK3 I took the switch off again to test it and hooked it back up to the CK3 (without the switch on it) and it still wont eject or be seen by Jungleflasher? have I screwed something up? or maybe cutting the tracks that are needed to be cut stop it from ejecting? - I ve searched for an answer but not found anyone having the same problem..
    Any advice would be much appreciated!

    Difficult to say really without looking at it, but if you'd like to send it me, I'd be happy to take a look at it.

    Post a pic of the board here and I'll let you know. Show us the board as you have it with the switch and without please if you can.

    Right Im starting to think Ive killed the drive - theres no sign of life from it It wont eject it doenst make any kind of noise I put it back in the 360 and it boots up ok but the screen just says opening and the 360 status light keeps flashing (like it does when ejecting) - wots my options if I have goosed the drive?

    If you have the key, get a replacement drive (liteon,samsung,benq if you're wanting IX LT) and spoof the firmware for it. That's it really.

    so am I right in thinking that it the whole 360 is no good now? I suppose I could use it for streaming films too still but have to admit Im pissed off now! it was only a couple of months old

    If the drive is screwed and you dont have the Key, yes you are knackered.

    You could try and blag a repair by Microsoft if it's only a few months old. Just explain it stopped working on day. Say it's getting an E74 Error and they should replace it.

    I'll still take a look at the drive board for you if you don't end up trying MS.

    yes send it to tj, he's away for a couple of days, so bear with him for a reply, if the dvd key is still on there he'll get it for you.
