Hi guys,

couldn't find the answer for my question on the forums, so thought I could make this topic.

Is it possible to replace a Hitachi drive, rom version 46, with any other NON 79 hitachi?

Problem is that the drive is showing up in JF, working on Xbox, but won't eject the tray trough CK3i or Xbox....

Thanks for the answers.

Maybe a dumb question, but if I have, let's say, a 58 rom version, can't I just flash LT 2.0 for rom 46 with correct key to it?

or just try swapping over the PCB, failing that do as martin said and flash your key to the other PCB
no soldering required

Try replacing the drive belt. This may solve the no eject issue. Small rubberbands work well.
It's the MCIC on the Hitachi board. I'm betting an eject command via SATA (i.e from the PC) will work fine.

Eject command on pc doesn't work either.

Contacted the guy who brought it in and he eventually told me that he connected the power cable upside down so I guess the board is fried.
