Nope, you've gotta figure that out yourself; every drive differs from one another, evne if they're of the same make, and thus one pot setting probably won't work for someone else.
As a note; those who are asking how to tweak their drives: Have you even looked in the Tutorials section os Xbox Scene? :|

Almost forgot, this will always boot the disc I think is a Ritek but it crashes sometimes...the good ol' "There is something wrong the disc you are using...it may be dirty or scratched". Memorex 24x cd-r's always boot and run flawlessly.
Bought the box new yesterday (12/14/03) in Delaware, USA.
Manufacture plant code is 05. (Piss me off, got a Sammy in a box with 05 two weeks ago.)
Here's the vitals since no one posted yet.
New Philips DVD-Rom Drive:
Model #: VAD6035/21
Customer Part #: X00624-005
Factory Code: 8VU
Mfg. Date: W334 - August - 2003
If you're looking at the laser from the front of the XBox, there are 2 pots on the PCB behind the lens. (gonna try to ascii it here):
| P1| | P2|
| LENS |
Front of XBox
P1 = 551 Ohms
P2 = 988 Ohms
If I knew which pot to try, I'd go for it...most likely we can deduce which one it is if someone out there can give readings from the old Philips pots.
LOL, ascii never works on message boards...but you should get the idea.

the philips WILL NOT play
ritek g03's ---- princos 1x ---- optodisc 1x discs ---- princo dvdrw's --- or some other generic media i tried...
those are all - dvd'rs. i tried one dvd+ to test (memorex) and it wouldnt take either...
read cdrw's though....
i wrote all the info down from a previous samsung and the three philips i got... i dont know what the number mean (serial id etc...) but all the phillips were the same while the samsung varied greatly in numbers (5 days in manufacturing difference)....
i hope this isnt the new protection, but the word needs to get out cause this would be one hell of a protection, and people are gonna be getting screwed who get them...

Can't be sure, but I think my original reading for my Philips were around 600 Ohms, so it's probably P1, but no guarantees here.

Looks like Bill Gate$ is the grinch this year.
But this should be front page news here.
Big, big news and all we see is Fake X2's and the good ol' propaganda about another weak Xecutor revision
I'm gonna report this to an op to try and get it in the news.
Looks like we'll see a ton of people in the stores digging for 06 XBox's.

I apologize for the shitty pics, but they are really old. IF you guys need better pics, I will take apart the box and snap some more but hopefully these will be good for now, just to get an idea of the shape of the drive or whatever.
Reads CD-RW and even some CD-R like a charm. Not sure about DVD media.
Oh yeah, i'll give this a temp pin as well.
If any of you guys have a new philly dirve, post pics so people can see the difference. Lets keep this thread informative and productive

but it'll read any dvd-r aslong as its a maxmax..
so if u have a dvd writer... try burn some xbox games on maxmax cd and tell me whether the philips can play it.

I modded a friends 2month old Xbox on the weekend, He had a Phillips drive and it worked fine on my CDRW and Bulkpaq DVD-R. Must had been an older type.
