Seems to work with DVD-/+R, DVD-RW, and CDRW. Does not read CD-R.

Topic pretty much says it all. Just picked up another xbox to mod dated 2004-11-24. Upon taking the lid off I didn't recognise the sticker on the dvdrom, After looking at it closely it is marked Hitachi-LG Model GDR-8050L. Now I've only ever come across thompsons, samsungs and phillips but never one of these. Is this something new or have I just completely missed boat when these originally started showing up?

No these drives are apparently pretty new. The first time I heard about one was probably a week or two ago.

good question... I'll be keeping my eyes peeled for how these things perform, and we may have another dud or something better than a samsung on our hands possibly. I wouldn't get my hopes up though MS seems to be attempting more and more to crack down on ppl who mod xbox's..And I suppose rightfully so

well i sent x-s this info with pics last week when i opened up a new box, i guess they didnt feel the need to post it, also posted it on www.notworksafe.com
the drive sucks, has errors reading the free ncaa2005/topspin disc, put the disck in my phillips drive and everything is fine
