i "winberg" do not take an resposibilty for your actions at recreating this moddification and hear by am showing you how to if you so choose.

ok with that out of the way here we go.

step one get your dvd rom drive out of your xbox360.

step 2 remove the holding platter from the top of the drive casing this my be differnt depending on your drive manufacter date.

next remove the four screws holding the case together located on the bottom.

now they are hard to see but there are 4 little black nubs that you must break or shave off to make the frame flush on top.

now mark on your acrylic/plexi/plastic sheet the width and length of the drive.

now whip out that dremel with a cutting wheel and cut out the center of the dvd drive locking platter holder thinga majiger, i did it this way the 2nd time around for a little better view at the disc.

IPB Image

now mark your spot on where your going to epoxy the metal holder in place so that the locking platter doesnt fall out and jam your drive up.
just use a marker that will wash off.

just glue the 3 tabs down the acrylic/plexi/plastic but make sure the locking platter is in under the holder first or els you have to rip it up and re glue it.

IPB Image

after that is all done drying you can plop it on and test it out.
ok so it works but i had to hold it down? whats the deal.
well i cut the drive case apart and made these little holding tabs.
see my next post.

and they attach were the screws go in, simple as that.

here is the disc ejected and you can see the internal workings.

good luck and be safe

Did you modify anything at all there on the drive itself, or did you just make those brackets from cutting out the area of the old cover that would normally go there?
Beautiful by the way.

How thick should the plexiglass be so it fits snugly using your bracket things from the old cover?

yo guys, just did this mod and just to let you know, instead of cutting the case apart even more to make those tabs for holding its much much easier to just extend 4 tabs on the plexi when ur cutting it, and use a thin nut and bolt that reaches both parts.

i forgot to take pictures, but i hope you understand what i mean, it works really well and saves alot of time (and dremel blades) biggrin.gif

little diagram just to clarify

-ii-
------ <---plexi
ii
ii <---nut and bolt
ii
------ <---black tab on drive
-ii-

seriosly excellent tutorial aprt from that tho, couldt have done it without this. thanks winberg!!!

peace and happy modding.
