    So after getting my dvd key from my slim drive and putting it back together, the drive wont read discs. But its weird.

    It doesnt say unrecognized disc. I can open/close the tray, but after closing it with a game (or a dvd or somethin) itll say reading for half a second, then give me the option to open tray. The drive is spinning so i know thats working, the open/close commands (from the console or menu) works. So idk whats the deal. I took it apart again to see if anything was disconnected but it wasnt. I didnt flash it, just got the key.

    You likely have caused some damage on the drive PCB.
    Or accidentally knocked the laser POT down.

    Try upping the lasers POT a few Ohms.

    it's only quick way I can think off.
    I never had an issue with it as I flashed/extracted keys with a connectivity kit and X360 USB.

    It may just be an old drive because ive use my usbpro plenty of times. I just bought this xbox and i heard that some drives have that issue.

    It's a shame that Xecuter never released the Xode.
    I'd love to have one ;/

    But yeh, DVD drives die eventually.
    The lasers just burn out.
