I'm new so sorry if I'm gonna sound like a n00b with all the technical hardware talk. Anyways...

Ok, so just recently, I realized that my Xbox gave me a black screen when I try to play games such as: Halo: Reach and MW2. I found out in an article that this was because of the new AP2.5 update. It seems like that my disc drive can't read the challenge so I end up being returned to the dashboard, but I don't get a ban like some people get.

Currently, I think I have a BENQ VAD6038 disc drive. This is a replacement 'cause my original one broke down. If any expert out there is reading this, can you suggest any type, brand or whatever type of disc drive that will let me play these games without ending up with a black screen or ban. I just need the ones that will "pass" the AP2.5. Is that the right term? Also, right the patch only checks if the game is original? If this helps, I only play original games on my box. My current disc drive setting are retail.
