Hey guys. Newb here, but I've got a lot of exerience in PC's and I'm very comfortable with disassembling hardware. In fact, I've got two 360's in pieces right now. Anyways, let me get to the nitty gritty
I have two 360s. One gives a RRoD within a second of powering on, the other gives a flashing green middle light, and nothing else.
The original drive from the one that flashes green had a dead laser.
The disk drive from the one that has the instant RRoD is fine.
Problem; the one from the flashing-green is a Philips drive, the one from the RRoD is a Hitachi drive.
I want to put the Hitachi drive (from the RRoD) into the green-flashing xBox.
I know this will require lots of work (if it's even possible) but I'm patient and willing to do that.
Just one question; do I need to buy any kind of special adapter to be able to do it?
If not, can you put me in the right direction to get started?
Again, I know this may not be possible, but thought better to post than to just toss the Boxes.
Also, I tried all known problems, checking for shorts, bad power brick, reattaching xClamps, etc. but the instant RRoD isn't an overheat problem as it literally happens the second you turn on the xBox - I had an overheat before on the same box and it took 3 seconds to happen.
Thanks for your help, please try not to mind my noobiness.
