Getting this error after replacing Wormgear Mechanism..
and only when I put a "newer" game in.
Ghosts for example, worked fine until the gear mechanism died.. now after
replacing it, I get this error.
nothing else has changed on my drive, why is it being like this?

Got this error after doing a GPU reflow on an E74.

Replaced the DVD power and SATA cables. No more E66.
