Ok, first 10 posters to this thread that give me answers on whether I can use the new Samsung oem pc dvd drive SD-816 in the xbox. It must be identical in operation to the the xbox original samsung drives.

Is it possible? I want in depth answers.. must be more than one paragraph long. All posters in the next 3 days will be put into a raffle. Dissolved will do a random number and the winner will get a free light gun with free shipping, on me, cause I love xbox-scene so much!!!!!!!!!

Ok, give me good answers, anyone got any good pictures????? Pictures of completed models done to work with xbox will get a free controller port.

See my thread in the buy and sell forum for more free items, and for parts.

Anyway, I'm looking to you technical geniuses here for help on this one. Can I use a oem Samsung SD-816 in an xbox just like it was an original samsung xbox dvd????

free chance at a free light gun... and it's bitchin' to play house of the dead with it!!!!

So long,
From the friendly trader,

All I can do is second the motion. Out of experience though...no. I have tried using different Samsung drive but the chipset did not match, so it was a no go.

Add me to raffle. wink.gif

ok, well that was an easy question. ok, my next question, where can I buy in bulk (over 100 units) of the other older samsung discontinued ones for dirt cheap.

This one if verified will get a free light gun.

yo

The free light gun is over since the question is done, let me see who posted....

I doubt you could find them in bulk since they are discontinued.

Darn, I missed this little contest sad.gif

Oh well, figured I would tell you this anyway.

I had a thomson that was shit (That is just my experience im sure there are plenty of them out there that work fine) I figured that I will just go and buy a samsung off ebay, but on the recommendation of a friend he told me I should buy a phillips that they are cheaper and just as good (again that was just his opinion), I had said to him that is not what i heard.

So for $15 bucks on ebay i bought a phillips. I figured it was worth $15 to try it. So far my phillips reads any dvd+r that i give it which is convinent since i have only a dvd+r/rw burner, but my phillips reads every cd-r (I have tried 5 or 6 different brands and all of them have worked) Maybe im lucky, not sure but for 15 bucks I am happy, those samsungs can get up to 75-100$ on ebay so I doubt that you could find a whole bunch dirt cheap.

Not sure if this helps you but good luck. beerchug.gif

$15 for a philips??? wow, that's a GREAT price, I should have bought it myself to resell haha smile.gif

But anywayz, yea, philips are weird, some are really good at reading dvds, some aren't. so it's kind of a crapshoot.

But I'm glad it worked out for you smile.gif And if you ever need anything xbox related, please email me at connector777@netzero.net I am a wholesaler of xbox stuff so I usually get stuff for about 60% retail, and I'll pass the savings on to you, I can beat any stores prices easily.
