    Did you plug the SATA cable back in? I remember i forgot to plug the cable in once and it just would say open tray close tray. Check that.

    Maybe you bricked the drive? In that case, if you have the original firmware, I think you can buy a new drive and flash your original firmware and key to the replacement drive.

    well i was putting it to mode B through 2 pins and a 1k resistor and this happend is there any way i can get the original firmware or is every drive different

    I think it may be just the drive becuase i still can do everything on the 360 it just that i cant load any disks so could this problem be fixed by just simply getting a new drive?

    Ok i think it may be in mode B it shows all symptoms but i need to know if you can play games in mode B im not sure if not then all i need to do is get my via sata pci card and i will be good to go hopefully but how ever what is not one of the symptoms is for the green light to keep blinking that is what scares me.
