Recommended Posts

I"m looking for one for the Samsung SDG-605 cheapest i could find is like 25 just for the laser but out of stock!! ugh!  ah, just found one on ebay..after shipping 30 $ better off finding one at flea market or thrift store hoping its drive is working.

I hear you. I have owned many Xbox systems, and out 5 or 6 Samsung SDG-605 drives, only 1 worked (and it was intermittent). Plus there is the pesky sticky tray issue.

      After months of focusing primarily on the Nintendo Wii, the Electron Shepherd team has just released a new product that we are thrilled to share: the Xbox2HDMI module!
      This tiny, power-packed module takes in the Component video and digital audio output from the Original Xbox and outputs an HDMI signal with embedded Dolby Digital Surround Sound (if that audio setting is enabled in your Xbox’s settings).  This module utilizes a fully custom PCB with a higher quality, next generation IC compared to what is typically used on the widely available Wii2HDMI and VGA2HDMI modules that are readily available online. If you are not happy with those modules, then you will absolutely be happy with these.
      This module efficiently supports the 480i, 720p, and 1080i resolutions that are default to the original Xbox.
      These units can be bought with ease on our store located here: https://electron-shepherd.com/xbox2hdmi/
      Please let use know if you have any questions about this or any other product we currently offer!

      Hi guys,
      I've got tons of Xbox originals over last 2 years and i always see the same problem with Samsung drives - they are not reading at all. Tweaking pot doesn't help. Laser beam is there, it is not weak. Lens is not dirty, tried to clean all of them. My guess was maybe these are capacitors on the drive board? The issues is i can't desolder them without tearing of the pads. Stupid, i know but really they are so fragile there or whatever is he reason. Plus I'm not sure on some of them in terms of specs. So, what do you think?
      1. Can it be capacitors? something else?
      2. If it is probably capacitors, anyone has all the ratings?

      My Xbox is not modded and kind of wanted to keep it that way, I wanted to replace my hard drive, is it as easy as just putting a new drive in my xbox? because i heard about having to unlock and lock with eeprom key, is there a way i can do it without modding or unlocking and locking a hard drive? thankyou for your time everyone!
