Yea, I've got one of the 616T Samsung drives modded for an xbox. Kinda pissed off with that drive right now tho.
Everyone I talked to about it said "Yea get one of those! They are the best PC drive for the xbox! and blah, blah" and so when I finally got hold of one of those (for free), I was so excited. I spent hours doing the electrical work. I made the wires inside all clean and nice, took the LED out but ran wires from there to the DA pins on the back of the drive so I could plug in an external DVD LED, did the physical drive modifications to get it to fit perfect, got the bezel to fit perfect, my gaps on top and bottom of the tray were perfect and it just looked awesome. Put it in, threw the Xbox together, powered it up, and what do you know? It wouldn't read 90% of the DVD+R's I have. It reads DVD-Rs/CD-Rs/Retail discs awesome, but only about 25% of my games are burned on DVD-R, so I threw the drive in a shoe box and into the closet, where it sits.
Needless to say, I was pretty livid. Still am.
