I know that the samsung 616t drive is the drive in 1.5s and thats the same drive(modded) you can use to replace your old drive. The problem is, since it has been discontinued, its freakin expensive. Id rather buy a new Xbox than pay $100+ for the 616t. I have seen on ebay the 616 for very cheap. I have a feeling this is a sign that it doesnt work. Does the Samsung 616 work as a replacement drive in an Xbox?

Theres no such thing as a 616, well there is, but thats not the whole serial...odds are its a 616Q or a 616B which will not work.

E-Mail the guy asking him to look on the label for the full serial.

I emailed tha guy a couple of days ago when I was looking for a samsung to mod...it is not a 616T/616F (The only 616's that can be modded to read originals)

plus the autctio would be higher...around 50 bucks(if people knew it was a 616T/F

I just bought one from the same guy and emailed him to see if he has any T models, but he says all he has are Bs at the moment.
I'm pissed

The 1.5 's don't come with a 616t. You probably saw a 605 although they do have philips and sometimes thompsons in them. Do an ebay search with "616t" theres about 40 on there now and it's driving the prices down.
Also check the sales listing on forums here too.
