hey guys, just checked all your pinned topics but cannot find anything.
Is there any way to retro fit a PC dvd drive to work in an xbox? my pos samsung just doesn't cut it anymore and really loves to read newly burnt dvdr's once before giving up. I've had to resort to installing to hdd via PC just to get things working!!

Hopefully someone can help.

Here's a few that come to mind right away:

Samsung SD 616T
LG GDR-8163b
LG GDR-8164 w/patx adapter

will a LG-GDR 8164B work ?
