only way to find out is to open it up and check the version of the drive. dont waste your $$ on a chip. flashing the firmware is free and easy. just do a lot of reading so you know wtf you are doing.
yeah but i dont like the idea of constantly opening the xbox to reflash when new firmware comes out etc, nor do i wanna cut up the case to run other cables etc.
I also dont have SATA on my PC, nor do I have that precious pioneer11d. I have an NEC 3550A. Which i've read mixed reviews on here. But according to what i've read the NME doesn't care about type of media or booksettings. So I can burn on whatever (+DL) as long as i back up with xboxx creator and use NME associator?
But AH I dunno. any opinions other than "$$".
