Replace Dvd Drive With Pc Drive

Recommended Posts

Possible with a very limited number of PC DVD models.

Samsung SD-616T or F (not E versions).  They require hardware modifications - eject tray motor direction reversal - and wiring to the Xbox's power and control (all yellow) cable and flashing the SDG-605B firmware to them.  Then, the Xbox case has to be modified to make it fit.

Similar changes for LG GDR-8163B or GDR-8164B. You don't have to do the eject tray motor direction reversal on these PC DVD drives - easy peasy. Ha!

      Hello,
      I am currently getting red and green flickering artifacts on my screen with all games with my Xbox. Not sure what the problem is. I have tried multiple different AV cables, televisions, and games thinking thinking that might have been the problem. But, it seems there is some major graphical error wrong with my Xbox, and googling the problem has not been easy. Does anyone know if there is a fix
       
      Thanks,
      Sam

      i found some new lasers for phillips drives and bought some. these were brand new because i had to desolder the esd protection solder points on it. i replaced the laser in a drive that would not work at all and now it is working. however, it won't read any disks that have any kind of serious damage. my old samsung and hitachi will play them fine but they have to be almost perfect for my phillips to read them. i have heard about how phillips turn the laser strength down in an attempt to prevent the from reading cd-r disks(fyi, i'm only trying to read official xbox disks). my question is, should i adjust the pots on this new laser so that the laser is stronger? i've heard that will shorten the life of the laser but i'm wondering if they were even turned up high enough in the 1st place?
