    I have recently flashed my hitachi drive and was relieved after doing so because i thought that would be the hardest part. Now i have been trying for three days to get a working game burnt. I have gone through a 10 pack of discs already and am really getting annoyed. I have heard that you MUST use verbatim discs but i have gone through a 10 pack of Memorex DL's and am halfway through a Sony 10 pack of DL's. I put them in the xbox after hoping that it will work and then it reads for a couple seconds and then says "Open Tray". If anyone can help me please I would really appreciate it. I am using mac OSX and PC used a number of programs and apps on both platforms. all of my games ARE stealth patched with abgx. Thanks.

    Do retail games work?

    Did you check to make sure you plugged the drive in?

    Are you burning the .dvd file or the .iso?

    Your drive may just be picky and you will need to use verbatims.

    Yah retail games work fine.
    yes the drive is plugged in..
    i have tried both the .iso and the .dvd file as PC requires .dvd and mac only allows the .iso

    That means you need to buy verbatims. Your 360 obviously doesn't like the brand. Hitachi's are picky in my experience.

    Read the firmware off the drive and make sure it is actually a modded file.

    If it is. Then you are messing up somewhere in the burning process.
