Error E66 (one red light) while installing new update May 2011

Hi all, I have a serious problem and need your help

When I do the update on my older xbox 360 I get the E66 error with single flashing red light at the front of the console close before the setup is finished.

When I turn the console back on and don't do the update it does work without it, but that obviously won't get me online. E66 is described as a problem with the firmware and the DVD drive and if u get it, then it could be due to the drive has undergone somekind of modification but none of that happened with my console.

I never opened my console and when it had to be repaired only Microsoft support made the repair and only they have touched my console!!!!. 

When I contact support, they tell me that my xbox has either been modified or I used copied games, that's not true and not fair. 

It is not fair that the only answer is "You have to buy a new console".

Can someone help me? or Microsoft will decide when we have to buy a new console?

I never violated the terms of use agreement!     This is an outrage!
