Question About Drives
Posted 24 December 2007 - 04:46 AM
my question is if i buy a "replacement" drive from ebay, say one of the ts-h943 drives, and put it into the xbox...will it play games again or is it just a waste of 40$ to play dvd's?

The 360 Console has a DVD key embedded into it, of which the DVD drive MUST have the exact same key. The only way known to retrieve this is to install the Infectus product and then downgrade the kernel to either 4532 or 4548, then finally follow this guide:
You can then either note the key and inject it into your new drive, or change the key to something else easier to type.
Be warned - it's not for the faint of heart and although it's do-able, it's not easy.

so basically all im doing it a hardware mod instead of just the standard firmware flash mod?

You'll need to either retrieve the DVD key from the console itself via the link I sent you. Once you have it/changed it, you'll need to dump the firmware from the new drive, replace the key and either just reflash or mod it while you're there - the choice at this point is up to you.
