ok I sold my xbox with thomson to a friend of mine. Then went to best buy and opened 4 different boxes and picked up the one with the Samsung drive.

I must say. Of all tests that I have completed, below are the results.

CD-R (old 650 mb dk blue dye Pioneer) works perfect
CD-R (new imation dye) works perfect
DVD+-R and RW Works perfectly.
CD-RW works perfectly.

I have still not found one cd around here which does not work on the Samsung. My recommendation guys is to get the samsung, if you are buying a new xbox. Get them to open the boxes and make sure you get the samsung. The drive is just awesome.

I can get a new Samsung XBOX for any one in NJ if you prefer. I'll just help you'll identify the right serial and unit.

Thanks all for the tips to get a samsung drive. you guys rock ! !

Yeah, I was lucky and got a Samsung on my first shot. I've had no disc troubles either. The problem is however it often comes down to luck. NO shop I went to would open the box for me, as once the seal is broken they aren't really allowed to sell it.
