hello, i have an xbox v1.0 and the dvd drive is giving me issues after months of worthy gameplay fun xD

Slow-loading times
disc-read errors
freezing during games
error 12 code

so seems like i need to replace my dvd drive right? now the question is, should i buy one thompson or philips replacement from ebay? i have heard thompson sucks so if you have an advice of this or any other dvd drive i can buy for the xbox i would apreciate it.

Also, i dont have one of those tools to open my xbox, can i use a regular screwdriver? thanks!

I like the Samsung SDG-605 drives

I sell them too if your interested.

What your looking for is a 'torx' bit set. The xbox uses a few different sizes of them
