What DVD drive do I have?
Posted 26 May 2004 - 07:48 PM
I have found 6 dvd+r brands that DO work, and every dvd-r and dvd+rw I have tried work.
So far no cdr has failed to read That i have tried.
Its by far the best drive, Ive modded 16 xbox's now, with various drives, none of the (retail xbox type) drives come near the samsung.

anyone care to fill in a complete nOOb to XBOX internals. I am getting ready to build a second one for modding purposes so any little bits of info would help.

|Is there any way to identify which drive you have from the serial number before you walk out of the store?|
Ditto. Or even just a guide as to how they're most easily found while still on the shelf (ie: Refurbs with a MFG date between Jan 2003 and May 2003).
I'd prefer to have a good guess that I'm gonna get one instead of just grabbing boxes at random and hoping I strick Samsung gold.

|Hello again guys. I have found something quite puzzling. My Xbox has a "05" at the end of the serial code, meaning it has a Phillips drive, but has a disc tray with two holes in it, which to my knowledge means that the drive is a Samsung. Maybe my knowledge is just wrong, or my Xbox's previous owner changed the drive, but WTF?|
You cannot determine which DVD-ROM you have by serial number. You can make an educated guess based on production lines, and what other people's drives are if they are the same version as yours, but you can't know for sure.
If it's got the two holes, then it's definatley a Samsung, and the previous owner didn't necessarily have to switch drives.

I've got my xbox modded, using EvolutionX, and have a samsung drive.
I had read previous to this that the samsung drive can read DVD+r's so i buy a bunch of them they are memorex. They don't work, tried 3 discs. Then i read Djbogies post about how he's found the only two that don't work are memorex and sony, but that he'e found 6 other brands that do...
I was wondering if people could suggest the names of brands they have found that do work for the DVD+r's as i only have a DVD+RW drive in my pc...

What I want to know is if there is a way that I can tell which drive I have without looking in the drawer because I won't be able to look in the drawer in the store. I have one with a Samsung drive right now. It works fine except for the thing that I mentioned above.
Help me out guys if you can. I'm leaving to go and trade the Xbox in tomorrow morning at about 9:30.
