if you replace it with the same drive just take out the pc board from the old and put it in the new.this way all the modded fw will be on the new drive.99% of drive failures are mechanical or the lazer.i have a chip in mine but have replaced the drive 3 times now with no problems.
Why make it harder then it is?
He has his bin files etc.
Just hook up your new drive make a firmware with the correct key and flash it with jungleflasher.
