also for XGD3 (AP2.5 enabled titles) games you need the same type of drive in the console, it is not possible to spoof drives any more and hasnt been able to for quite a while now.yes that's exactly what I'm saying. The drive key has to match the key on the motherboard to be able to play games. If the drive key doesn't match then it will only play DVDs and CDs. So your xbox will only be a media player.
