So I bought an xbox the other day,I decided to hack it firmware it.I crack it opens,ect,ect.But the Sata port of the dvd drive (ms28)Is broken and I can't connect it!So I'm like fuck it,Ill use my other drive.I removed the fucked sata port from the Drive,so there is no more sata ports on the dvd drive.So I plug in the others dvd drive in my xbox (again a ms28).I flashed it,pluged back in.I put a origianal game in,the disc won't read.I put a normal dvd in,it works.After a while I realized that I needed to get the Original code from the first dvd drive,but I can't acess since no more sata port connected to it.So those are my question:


Is it possible to re-add a sata port on the dvd drive?If yes,where can it be done?

Since I'm using a dvd drive in my xbox that does not have the original keys,can it still read backed up games?(I don't have a burned game to try it).

Yea that all thank you.

If the drive doesn't have the key that matches the motherboard then it's not going to read anything but CDs and DVD movies.

A new SATA connector can be added to the board that's missing one, but depending on the damage done I'd have to see it to tell ya how to go about it, have any good pics of it?

Forcing it to 3RL for a warranty repair is warranty fraud and will not be discussed on the forums, continuing to do so or anyone advising such will result in loosing your account here. If ya want to try and fix it try one of the X-clamp replacement methods or just keep using it normally, it's likely to 3RL on it's own as those symptoms are typically how one acts before it does.


As far as the drive goes I can't tell ya what it would cost to fix as I still haven't seen the damage done to it. Ya can get the connector from another dead board or ordered from some place online for a few bucks, but without knowing how bad it's damaged or what kind of repair work you're capable of it's impossible to say.

Depending upon the old/new drive...I would just switch out the circuit boards.

The Xbox is only going to read the board, not the entire DVD drive...so yeah, if your new board is of the same brand, you should be lucky and able to simply add your old circuit board to the new DVD drive, and everything should work perfectly.

If you have a BenQ, it will be much more difficult to remove the circuit board and will involve some soldering. From what I've heard, the Hitachi and Toshiba have three simple connections that can be unplugged. The newer Xboxs have them soldered so that people cannot change boards and drives quite as easy.

Hope this helps...but you're not completely dead yet!!!
