I haven't opened up the system yet but by looking at the TEAM and the Lot No + the way the rom looks(it hs the little holes) I was able to determine that I got a system with a Hitachi drive. The MFR Date is 9/9/06 so it's pretty new...

Do I have any chance of creating/playing backups on it?

Is it possible to buy a samsung drive on ebay or in a stare and replace the one I have inside?

Should I open it and see what's on the inside for some more info?

Thanks for the help guy, I really appreciate it.


PS: I got the system two days ago at Best Buy.

There is a very good chance that your drive is the dreaded Hitachi 0078fk. I would suggest returning it.

I found something that's supposed to be a software solution for it, however, I don't have a 78 to test it on. Here's the nfo:
CODE

-----------------------------------------------------------------------
            XTRM-HITACHI_v3.1 Stealth v78
-----------------------------------------------------------------------
*** MOST OF THE WORK IS FROM garyOPA, even most of this Readme File ***
                 *** TESTED ON V78 ***


FEATURES (my contribution on this release):

* Removed old media detection and replaced with better media detection
  (media detection ver 2) from Geremia.
* Incorporates Maximus Firmware Stealth (Full Firmware Stealth)

***********************************************************************

FLASH78.BAT: Flashes your drive with 3.1 Fw Stealth (Media Detect 2,
              F900 core and Firwmare Stealth


RESTORE.BAT:  Return your drive to original State, even if you have
              firmware stealth in your drive


*RECOMENDATION: If you have flashed your drive in the past use RESTORE
first. If it is a brand new drive use directly the Flash command you
like. If you dont plan to use your drive to dump games use the
flash15s.bat


* ALL NEW XTREME V3.1 FIRMWARE FOR v78 BUILDS OF THE HITACHI DRIVES!

   - includes "Security Sector Extraction" v78 Hitachi Drives

   - Included media detection 2 from Geremia and Maximus Firmware
     Stealth, this release just supports SS Extraction within Windows
     without the need to re-flash your drive back and forth between
     PLAY & RIP!



Flashing your drive
-------------------
FLASH22S.BAT automatically makes a complete backup of your firmware system

* To FLASH a drive, it must be in "Mode B" and have "Drive Letter"
* Then just run FLASH78 from "Command Prompt" while inside windows
* Prompt must be at the same directory with the rest of the files!

* FLASH78 needs two variables, the assigned "Drive Letter", and any 4
  numbers for the BACKUP directory, use a new unique number like 1572

  - This is used to make your BACKUP directory!

  - For Example: FLASH78.BAT H 1572

  - Will cause the FLASH after running to have, a BACKUP directory
    "X78-1572" and the program will store FIVE firmware files:

    ---- key.bin   ---- DRIVE KEY /// DRIVE KEY
    ---- was.bin   ---- Your drive before FLASH
    ---- gdrXX.bin ---- The untouch original fw
    ---- XX_22.bin ---- The patched Xtreme22 fw
    ---- now.bin   ---- Your drive after FLASH!

  - Where the XX in the above names will be the version of your Hitachi

* Program will not start unless a BACKUP is correctly made and stored!

* Flash will auto-detect your firmware build of your Hitachi drive.

* You can flash any drive, even "v1.1" or "f900" or your own hacks.

* System will check flashed firmware, and redo until 100% completed.

* Once you get the PASS / DONE line, you can shut-down the system.


FLASH15S.BAT is the same as above but, without F900 core, use this
if you dont want to extract SS with your drive.



Restoring your drive
--------------------
RESTORE.BAT automatically restores your drive back to original state

* To RESTORE a drive, it must be in "Mode B" and have "Drive Letter"
* Then just run RESTORE from "Command Prompt" while running windows.

* The new RESTORE does not need any backup, it will 100% restore your
  drive back to "ORIGINAL" state as long as it is visible in Windows!

* Program will not start unless it detects the version of your Hitachi!

* You can restore any drive, even "v1.1" or "f900" or your own hacks.

* System will check flashed firmware, and redo until 100% completed.

* Once you get the PASS / DONE line, you can shut-down the system.


Features
--------
Here it is, the long awaited World's first Xbox 360 backup firmware
modification to boot game backups on Hitachi GDR-3120-L DVD drives!

Any chance someone can point me in the direction of how to find out which ROM I have? I'd really appreciate it.

And what would be the point of returning my system?

The only way to find out for sure what rom you have is to open the 360 up. You should return it and try and get one from somewhere else until you find one with a manufactured date before aug 06.

Methadon....that was posted previously....it has been proven to be fake. The firmware "release" has been found to be identical to the v2.3 rev 2 package.

If I open it to try and see which ROM version I have, will that void my warrantee( I know it will but will they be able to tell I opened it?) Also, where would I look for one made before august 06 if I were to return it?

Thanks.

What about this? http://www.team-xecu...ead.php?t=43929

Is the 78FK one different from the 78?

Arg I tried opening it but when I try to pull off that Microsoft sticker it leaves behind silver letter which I think will say "VOID" or something like that.. So I didn't pull it off all the way..

I know it's probably impossible to replace the drive as I won't be able to get the key easily..Is my only choice returning it and looking for an older model? Is there a surefire way to find out the ROM version without opening the 360?

Thanks.

Actually it doesnt leave any lettering behind just a criss cross mess of silver but a sure way of telling you have opened the box up.

I opened my one hundreth box yesterday, got a dreaded 78fk, but that was besides the point. And then the same as I do with every box, when finished I sealed the ms sticker back down and left u unable to tell it had been opened. How I did it is easy and I discovered how by using the search button, I suggest you do the same.

If it's a Hitachi drive and made after Aug 06, there is a 99.9% chance that it is a 0078. I wouldn't bother opening it to find that out.

I have just added a Hitachi Drive with Firmware version 0078FK and manufacturing date JULY 06 to the Database so people should try to buy xbox360's with mnfd date PRIOR to JULY 06, not just AUG 06.

And just a small update for people who are looking for hacks for their Hitachi 0078FK drives, the news is not very good, still the only way to get into the DVDROM's firmware is to remove the chip from the drives motherboard, which is not easy due to the black glue surrounding the pins and underside of the chip. Then you need to extract it's contents with a 'Willem Programmer' or similar and add the extreme hack etc, as mentioned in some of the latest posts here.

Considering this drive has been around since JULY and there still isnt an everyday hack for it, I dare say M$ are going to distribute these drives alot more, which is going to upset alot of 360 modders out there.

But now that the data from the firmware has been extracted, the x-scene xperts will be working hard on this and we owe these guys tons of Kudos. I just hope a software method is released soon....!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Only in Australia/NZ....thats where the 0078FKs showed up earlier than in the US/UK.
