Ok. Got this xbox from someone, and the dvd drive is fucked. A small ribbon inside the drive is broken. the white one shown in the picture. When the dvd drive is closed the led on the front of the xbox stays flashing green as if it were loading the CD, but never stops flashing.
The disk does NOT get rotated, I put a CD in and it wasn't moved at all when I got it out.
OR, does anyone know of a cheaper alternative, I mean the way I see it. I want a CD drive that can read original disks as well as other disks, but I'm told the only way to do this is to buy a DVD drive that was an original XBOX DVD drive, which is stupid because they cost about the same (or just under) as an xbox.
edit: the drive is a hitachi-LG GDR-8050L, so if you have one even if it's broken, please post.This post has been edited by xoramos: Apr 23 2009, 03:12 AM
