This is exactly what mine did before I got the dreaded 3 red lights of death. Have your games been freezing?

E65: DVD Drive Error.... DVD Timeout, Wrong firmware, dvd is without f/w chip, etc.

E66: dvd firmware mismatch .... the firmware on the drive doesnt match what the mobo is expecting

E67: Hard Drive Error... It could be a problem with the Hard Drive itself or a problem with the internal connection to the hard drive, Try removing the hard drive and playing without it

You have a old flash fw on the drive that need updating or you have changed the drive and it does not match the original drive that was fitted and would need spoofing
I just guess you just have a old fw to be updated

If I were you I would reflash firmware to the original firmware and then update to Xtreme 5.2.....

Don't just flash to the latest firmware without going back to the original as it will only cause more problems ;)

can you play any games at all ??
or is it just online ??

had one the other day cured it by formatting hard drive something alters and your profile wont work anymore ,format harddrive or memory card and try again

with a new profile
