Before opening the 360 box, i mean at the store. How do i know if it is a samsung or lg drive?

Thing i have understand is that the firmware modication does not work on the philips drive, so i wouldnt by accident want to by a xbox360 with philips drive. how do i know this?

Phillips aren't in retail units so you're good either way...

As philips isnt in any xboxes since ages ago, and all the other drives is flashable in one way or another, this isnt such a big issue anymore. Just go and buy yourself a console and flash away smile.gif

my MS28 has been fine since i got it, and flashes fairly easy using the textbook guide (do forum search or something), sure its not as easy as the others, but its no real issue, just getting the timing correct (took me 3 tries to read, and 2 trys to write, i have only updated it once since i got it , from a 3.3 i think it was to 5.0A, and it appears to work fine.
