Hey man i got a question. My Xbox 360 disk drive messed up and i got my friends disk drive(he had the 3 RROD) i switched the cables too and I installed it to my Xbox. The thing is that my Xbox will only read movies now do you know what could be wrong? I checked the mother board for irregularities and the connection between the Cable and the mother board seems to be fine and i didnt replace the chip because it was from Xbox to Xbox. Please help
