I have all these loose 360 parts from friends giving me completely busted systems over the years. Usually they give them to me after they take it apart themselves and can't fix it.
Recently I wanted to try to get one system working out of the five or six here and i've managed to do so however I can't get anything to read games because I have no clue what the original disc drive is for most of this gear.
My only current method is the most time consuming but it might be the only way. I've pulled drive keys off of everything in the parts box and I am trying to program the keys onto my one *new* drive (Samsung) one at a time until I find one that works for this motherboard.
I was hoping there might be a database or something online and a number printed on the motherboard that will narrow my efforts in this way. Is there anything like that or a much easier method that I don't know about? I've had to gather my info on how to do stuff from all over the place.
