Hi, I know, the 616t is everyone favorite dvd drive because it reads originals...

but I personanly don't play many games on my xbox, and could live without reading originals..

So I ask, whats a good DVD rom drive to use as a replacement to my current phillips, which will read lots of my DVD-R/RW and +r/+rw disc, as well as most of my cd's, at a fast and reliable speed, without requiring much modding (I.E. My Xbox will still look like it was un-modded to the eye from the outside).

If you want the end result to look stock, it's going to require signifigant modding. There's no getting around that. You'll have to cut/file the drive tray to make it fit in the right place, you'll probably have to modifiy the faceplat or tray to make them fit together (unless the new drive has the exact same mounting type), and you'll have to wire up the tray in/out and disc ready signals so it works using the stock eject button.

Other than all that, it's a piece of cake wink.gif
