Help With Drive Swapping
Posted 14 June 2008 - 12:30 PM
I'm looking for some info on drive swapping
I have two faulty xbox 360's
One with a mother board problem and the other with a drive problem
So I'm hoping out of the two to make one working 360
both have been flashed with upgraded firmware to play backups
The 360 witch has a BenQ (VAD6038) drive in has a faulty drive
the other seems to have a motherboard problem with a working drive (Hitachi ROM VER: 0047DJ)
Is it possible to put the Hitachi drive into the 360 with the BenQ drive and if so do you have a link to any info that will show me how to do it, there is so much info out there on this sort of thing it is hard to find the right place to look
I have flashed drives before but have never attempted to swap drives over so the more help the better really
Thanks for your time

You're basically going to open the Hitachi firmware in DVD Firmware Toolbox, copy the DVD key from the BenQ firmware to the Hitachi and then spoof it as a Benq.
You would then be able to use the good Hitachi drive in place of the faulty Benq.

I didn't have the original FW from the BenQ So I just used the drive key from th flashed FW
Worked a treat
