Hey my friend gave me an xbox, he says its broke so I take it apart and it appears that the motor has gone bad. Does anyone know where I can buy a cheap motor from? Can I take a motor out of another thing such as a cd player or something? Id like to repair this xbox and mod it then sale it on ebay or something.
I dont have much money or else Id replace the whole drive.

What motor are you talking about? I think there are 2 motors in the DVD drive. I dont know about taking it from another drive, but you can buy a used or new drive off eBay or the BST.

Ill assume you mean the motor on the rom drive since you mentioned a cdd-player. a cd-player one wont work cause it wont read the dvds but if you can find out what kind of rom it is you can get it here.

I just need a motor to spin the disc with. The one I have now is burned up. I dont need anything else.
